If you would like to serve in local jail ministry, check out Kentucky Jail Ministries. They make contact with about 1000 inmates a month and serve in the Campbell, Boone and Kenton county jails.
About forty men and women visit regularly in the local jails. The volunteers teach bible studies, life skills classes and lead church services. They share the gospel biblically with everyone they meet. In addition to their jail visits, they meet together on Saturday mornings to celebrate, worship, train and pray.
Four Things You Should Know
I met the men and women one Saturday morning and they shared four interesting things you should know about jail ministry:
- The #1 Obstacle: Incarcerated men believe they have done too much to be forgiven.
- Prayer Box: Every jail has a prayer box. Inmates believe their prayer requests are thrown into the garbage. Kentucky Jail Ministries prays over every request.
- Drugs: Jail is a terrible place to kick a drug habit.
- Jail Ministry Changes Lives for Time and Eternity: If you connect with Kentucky Jail Ministries ask James, Isaac or Jason for their testimonies.
