Thank you for supporting second chances, working with us to tear down the walls of that second prison and the lies of social stigma—to truly offer a second chance.
For Brandon, the New Leaf Project was a difficult class to attend, yet it was the most impactful.
For 40 years, Prison Fellowship® has been going into correctional facilities, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those behind bars, and offering the hope of true transformation. Through the use of Bible-based programming, and with the help of thousands of committed volunteers, lives are being changed, hope is being restored, and darkness is being replaced with the promise of a future.
The scene is one familiar to Christians. A pastor stands next to a man partially submerged in water. With “Amazing Grace” playing in the background, the preacher intones, “As a confession [sic] of your faith that Jesus Christ is head of your life… I baptize thee in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Last fall, Prison Fellowship teamed up with singer-songwriter Idalee to create something unique—a music video, shot entirely inside a corrections facility, with a band composed of men from the prison.
"I had the amazing opportunity ... to bring this song, 'Heal,' into prison and perform it with prisoners," Idalee says.
