In-prison Volunteer Opportunities
Take the love and truth of Jesus Christ behind prison walls. With caring, commitment, and training from Prison Fellowship, you can help inmates navigate the road to transformation.
In collaboration with partner organizations, Prison Fellowship carries out evangelistic campaigns in prisons throughout the United States, drawing inmates to hear the Gospel through testimonies, concerts, and other attractions. These events are made possible with the help of in-prison event volunteers.
In-prison event volunteers attend special events at correctional facilities close to where they live. These special events last for one to three days, and volunteers generally interact with inmates in a group setting. With the necessary training from Prison Fellowship, volunteers may hand out evangelistic materials, share the Gospel, and demonstrate caring through their presence.
Bible studies and life skills
In-prison facilitators use the Bible—as well as materials approved or developed by Prison Fellowship—to help inmates apply God’s Word to their daily lives in areas ranging from addiction to parenting. Rather than simply dictating information, facilitators engage inmates in thoughtful discussions of the issues they face, teaching them to take hold of the power of Scripture to change their lives.
Have you ever wanted to do more with all of the knowledge you soak up during Sunday service and Bible studies? This is your chance. You don’t have to have a degree in theology, and it doesn’t matter if you’ve never led a Bible study before. Let Prison Fellowship give you the training and tools you need to share the life-changing truths of God’s Word.
Ministry Delivery Team
An in-prison team member partners with a group of Christian volunteers from a single church, multiple churches or Christian organizations; coming together to serve in unity toward the common goal of seeking the transformation of prisoners through the power and truth of Jesus Christ.
These volunteers meet regularly to pray, plan for, and deliver Christ-centered ministry such as worship services, Bible studies, seminars, parenting classes, various special events and many other ministry offerings, as the facility allows.
Mentoring and accountability
Prison Fellowship mentors are regular people from diverse backgrounds, encouragers who go into correctional settings to develop one-on-one relationships with an inmate of their same gender. With authenticity, gentleness, and respect, they model Godly attitudes and behaviors for their mentees. They also help prepare an inmate for transition back into the family, church, and community, by helping them establish goals, learn life skills, and grow towards greater maturity. Mentors demonstrate commitment and genuine care along the long-term road to transformation.
Turn your life experience and caring into an opportunity for an inmate to change. Let Prison Fellowship give you everything you need to become an in-prison mentor.
