  • advocate for justice reform and activate grassroots networks to do the same.
  • equip wardens to bring restorative change to their facilities.
  • care for prisoners’ families and help strengthen the bond between children and their parents who are behind bars.

Outrageous Justice® is a free small-group curriculum that helps Christians gain a clear understanding of criminal justice issues and take action to promote peace and restoration. This is a wonderful way for a church to learn how to bring hope and healing to those involved in the criminal justice system. Click here to get your free copy.

In-Prison Ministry. Your church can touch the lives of incarcerated men and women by volunteering in local prisons at a Prison Fellowship Academy®. You will be trained to facilitate life-changing classes that coach prisoners to lead lives of purpose. Already volunteering behind bars? No problem—this opportunity can complement your current ministry. Click here to learn more.

Prison Fellowship Angel Tree® equips churches to strengthen relationships between incarcerated people and their children and support the families of prisoners year-round. Through Angel Tree®, local congregations extend the hope of the Gospel and enfold Angel Tree families into church life by delivering Christmas gifts on behalf of incarcerated parents, sending kids to summer camp, facilitating one-day sports camps, and more.

Financial Support. It’s simple: The Church loves Christ by loving people, especially those in need—the poor, the sick, the prisoner.
