Who We Are

Onesimus Ministries was established in 1982. The primary focus of Onesimus is to provide transitional services to men released from jails and prisons. Onesimus provides structured living for ex-offenders in 4 group homes located in Chesapeake, Virginia Beach and Norfolk. Currently Onesimus provides 28 beds for ex-offenders. In addition to housing, Onesimus also provides job referrals and transportation to all group home residents.

Our Vision

A 4th home is in the process of being purchased in Norfolk. After some improvements, Onesimus will place residents in the home by Spring 2005.

Types Of Activity

Onesimus cooperates with the Virginia Department of Corrections and the local probation offices. Onesimus interfaces with the activities and 12- step programs of area churches. Onesimus has a large volunteer base which assists the residents in their many needs. Onesimus also cooperates with the local community servive boards in assisting residents in substance abuse and mental health counseling.


Most of the residents of Onesimus come directly from the Virginia Department of Corrections; some residents come from the local jails of Norfolk, Chesapeake and Virginia Beach.

Our magazine (newsletter)

The newsletter "Metamorphosis"is mailed quarterly to local churches and ministry supporters.

About Our Prison Ministry

Onesimus also provides free bus transportation for families of Virginia inmates. Onesimus serves the following Virginia prisons: Southampton, Deerfield, Greensville, Lawrenceville, Brunswick, Nottoway, Lunenburg, Dillwyn and Buckingham Correctional Centers.

The bus and vans leave from Norview Baptist Church, in Norfolk, on the 1st and 4th Saturdays.

Support In
