“Is there an opportunity for people to get involved at some level in Prison Ministry?”
This is Mike McKnight. I am part of a ministry team in the Atlanta area called Creative Ministries. Our ministry team currently conducts 65 services a month in the Fulton County & Rockdale County Jails. We are believing God for 2700 decisions for Christ this year – precious souls into the Kingdom of God. Is the Lord calling you to commit to the harvest?
You Can Pray
Prayer covering is always needed! I was reminded recently by one of the brothers who ministers at Fulton County Jail, this is “front line work for the Lord” as we reach out to the least of these. The men we meet with each week are probably the least “church-ed” people on the planet. As such, we focus our emphasis on winning their salvation. To enter the Kingdom of heaven, one “must be born again.” Without a new heart, their future is hopeless. Will you pray that the Lord will open the hearts of these men to receive the free gift of forgiveness and salvation from the Lord?
You Can Go
There is a screening process required to get into the prisons/jails we minister in and will be glad to help you get these submitted. I am currently working with some men to establish their affiliation with Creative Ministries so they can join me each week. If you’re interested in going through that process, let me know. Here are the open opportunities to minister:
- Sunday Afternoon (PM) at Fulton County Jail
- Tuesday night at Rockdale County Jail
- Thursday nights (alternating every other Thursday) Rockdale County Jail (3 services)
You Can Give
This is a “home mission” taking the Gospel to those in the prisons, the jails and the homeless on the streets; ministering to the least, the lost and those unloved by the world. The entire segment of society we minister to cannot possibly help us in return. Donations to this home mission work are always gratefully appreciated! Contact me (Mike McKnight) for more details.
