Who We Are
Through this ministry, we are blessed to be able to take the Word of God behind the bars and to help the inmates find freedom through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. We currently minister twice a week at the Wayne County Detention Center and are awaiting approval to minister to the inmates in both State and Federal Prisons on a regular basis. The vision of this ministry is to reach the lost and to teach that through Jesus Christ there is a different and better way.
As with any productive ministry, Satan continually places stumbling blocks in our path. Two of the worst problems we encounter are "Gang Members" and "The Nation of Islam". To counteract these attacks, We began arming our Christian Inmates with the Sword (Holy Bible).When our inmates begin to learn the Sword (Bible) and the power in which it holds,"No weapon formed against thee shall prosper." Isaiah 54:14
Types Of Activity
We have influenced 38 souls to Christ and have given away over 200 Swords(Bibles) over the past year, some are printed in Spanish for our Hispanic Christians. God moves in the favor of those who fear Him. All the Glory to God Jehovah Our Lord Jesus Christ. To the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ, this ministry has lead over 300 men to know Jesus as their personal Savior. All the Glory and Praise to Jehovah Rapha.
