Prison Fellowship is pleased to announce the expansion of its “Prisoners to Pastors” program to the Cristina Melton Crain Prison in Gatesville, Texas. Forty inmates will be participating in the program, which provides seminary-level education and training in prisons.
Facilitated by Prison Fellowship volunteers and in cooperation with The Urban Ministry Institute (TUMI) of World Impact, the Prisoners to Pastors program offers former lawbreakers the chance to become leaders of the Church behind bars and after they return to the community.
The program at the Cristina Melton Crain Prison is the first of its kind in Texas. Prison Fellowship currently operates other Prison to Pastors programs in California, Colorado, Michigan, and Florida, and hopes to expand to more facilities in the future.
