Build the Church

Behind prison walls

We are at work behind prison bars, reaching men and women with the Gospel. Transforming lives, so that prisons release disciples of Jesus Christ — not repeat offenders.

Make disciples

Prison Fellowship takes the Gospel into 334 prisons, jails and detention centers in the United States.


Prepare evangelists

Behind prison walls, criminals are not only becoming Christ-followers, they’re studying to become pastors and leaders.


Transform communities

700,000 prisoners are released from prison and return to our communities each year. What if they were evangelists — instead of criminals?

Prisoners to Pastors

Inner cities are locked in cycles of crime, drug abuse, and violence. And more than 700,000 prisoners are released each year. Friends like you are helping turn the tide. Prisoners to Pastors — an intensive, seminary-level training program — helps inmates become dynamic Christian leaders. Prisoners to Pastors graduates are leading the way in the fight to renew their communities through the truth of Christ. Learn how you can support this revolutionary program.

Angel Tree

More than two million children know firsthand how much it hurts to have a parent behind bars. Little hearts wonder if mom or dad still loves and remembers them. For decades, Prison Fellowship’s Angel Tree program has joined forces with friends like you to bring hope and joy back into the lives of prisoners’ children. Through the delivery of Christmas gifts and Christ-centered programs that continue all year long, inmates’ children are introduced to the love of Christ. Be part of the miracle! Take action for prisoners’ children today.
