Who We Are
The Forgotten Man Ministries is a non-denominational, charitable organization established in 1966 with a mission to carry the gospel of Jesus Christ to inmates housed in the county jails of Michigan, USA. We are presently serving in 35 jails.
Our primary purpose is the rehabilitation of inmates through the gospel of Jesus Christ. We believe this is best accomplished by providing a trained and commissioned chaplain to minister within the county jail environment. Our chaplains organize and oversee evangelistic programs within the jail, utilizing volunteers and provide Biblical counseling to inmates and staff.
Types Of Activity
Our chaplains coordinate and oversee the following types of ministries in the jail: Bible distribution, Weekly worship services, Group Bible studies, Personal Biblical counseling, Correspondence Bible Courses, Bookcart & Literature ministries, Drug & Alcohol related programs, Video ministries, & special seasonal programs (ex. Christmas, Easter, etc.)
