The Restoration Series: Jonathan's Walk

Follow along as Jonathan faces his fears and walks into freedom—for good.

For years, Jonathan has been in prison. As a result, he has missed milestone moments with his family. He wasn’t there for his daughter’s first day of school or a thousand little experiences with his wife and as a father, he is devastated to be separated from those he loves most.

Jonathan has been looking forward to his release from prison for over a decade. So many life events have been missed and he is now ready to be with his wife and kids again. Of course, this transition isn't going to be easy. The odds are against him: with over half of prisoners returning to prison within two years, Jonathan is aware of the challenge set before him.

Still, he is determined to take the skills he has learned into the world outside of incarceration and stay there, helping build the community that he is part of for years to come.

HELPING PRISONERS LIKE JONATHAN FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS

Though America is home to only 4 percent of the world's population, we house more than 21 percent of its prisoners. Recidivism–the tendency of a criminal to reoffend—is out of control. The Restoration Series tells the story of men and women who have experienced the Prison Fellowship Academy, a revolutionary in-prison program that is combatting incarceration and recidivism head on.

At Prison Fellowship®, we believe that God is in the business of restoration. No matter how far gone hope seems to be, there is always room to fight for redemption. We are passionate about meeting men and women in prison and sharing with them the hope of redemption in Christ.

In addition, we equip them to thrive outside the walls of prison upon their release, helping them re-enter society redeemed and ready to walk in freedom. Learn more about Prison Fellowship.
