Who We Are
Karlton Harris Prison Ministry is geared towards helping those currently incarcerated and recently released from prison. Karlton built this ministry to assist those in which many have overlooked. Based on his own experience, serving 5 of an 18 year sentence, he now goes back into the prisons to encourage others. Heís now a loving husband, devoted father to his 6 boys, minister, Sunday school teacher/Superintendent, and newly published author.
The vision of Karlton Harris Prison Ministry is to go back in to the prisons and help those that are incarcerated or those who have been recently released, so that they'll know what steps they'll need to take in order to remain free and to become productive citizens in society. Our main goal is to help reduce the recidivism rate all over the United States by transforming lives with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

About Our Prison Ministry
Prison ministry is something that we're learning a lot of people need but donít know where to look to find information. The statistics are upsetting as far as how many of the people in prison have children, and how many of their children will end up in prison. Our goal is to help reduce the recidivism rate and help break that generational curse of going in and out of prison.
We are requesting prayer for our ministry so that God will continue to open doors so that we may help all of the men and women that are in prison, children whose parents are incarcerated, and our nation as a whole. We want to be able to provide all the resources needed for ex-offenders so that their transition back into society will be an uplifting one and a battle that can be easily won.
