Prison Ministry

How many chances does a person deserve in life? There are millions of people incarcerated around the world. All people who were created by God to do great things for His kingdom, but somehow lost their way.

That's why our prison ministry teams hit the road each year to meet with inmates from different backgrounds and with different spiritual needs. Each inmate receives a gift bag with hygiene items, an encouraging note, and one of Joyce's books. And when the opportunity arises, the Gospel is shared.

We've had the privilege to visit with more than 3 million inmates in more than 4,000 prisons in over 55 countries, and in all 50 states. And for every inmate we've met, including the more than 150,000 who've accepted Christ, we think it's never too late to give someone a second chance. It's never too late to share the Gospel, and no one is ever too far gone to be embraced by the loving, life-changing arms of God Himself.
