Prison Ministry

Over 2,500 people are incarcerated in Jackson and Winn Parish. There is a great opportunity for our churches to have an impact on the lives of those that are certainly at a crossroads. Every third and fourth Tuesday of the month, 7:00 pm, there is an opportunity to minister to the inmates at the Jackson Parish Correctional Center. People that volunteer often share stories of those that gave their lives to Christ through the ministry. For many it is a wake-up call, a turning point when they decided to surrender their lives to Christ. They show tremendous gratitude toward those that took time to invest in their lives. Through jail ministry there is an opportunity to evangelize those without Christ and disciple those that come to Christ. What a joy it is to see someone come to Christ, sell out to Him and grow. Through the prison ministry in our 2 parishes there is a great opportunity to reach out to many in the love and name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. We can’t help but note the words of Christ in Matthew 25:36 – “I was in prison and you came unto me.”
