Every child has a story. For 2.7 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration.
Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives your church an opportunity to share Christ’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners.
Resources for Chaplains
Chaplains are on the front lines of prison ministry, and are the vital links connecting Angel Tree to incarcerated parents. Here you will find the resources you need to start Angel Tree in your prison or to continue your prison’s participation.
Resources for Church Coordinators
Church Coordinators are the hands and feet of the Angel Tree ministry, using their time and talents to bless prisoners’ children and families. Here you will find the resources you need to support your church participation in Angel Tree.
Resources for going beyond Christmas
That first Christmas connection can be the beginning of a rewarding ongoing relationship between Angel Tree children and their local church. Here you will find resources to help your church continue Angel Tree ministry throughout the year.
Family Embraced DVD Group Study
Family Embraced is a creative combination of videos, small group discussion questions, and group activities developed by Angel Tree to help churches take that next step of investment in the lives of prisoners’ children, their caregivers, and their incarcerated parents.
In-Prison Sign-Up Coordinator Tool Kit
The Angel Tree In-Prison Sign-Up Kit is an online presentation designed to provide you and your volunteer teams with a set of resources to increase your ministry impact with the prison chaplains, prisoners, and prisoners’ families involved with Angel Tree.
Angel Tree Volunteer Handbook
The purpose of the volunteer handbook is to provide you with the general policies and procedures of Prison Fellowship and Angel Tree, and to outline how volunteers like you can partner with us on our mission to serve prisoners, their families, and your community.
Through works of grace, acts of justice, and proclaiming truth, Prison Fellowship Ministries is an expression of the church, bringing peace to a broken world.
