Prison Ministry Resources

“Prison Ministry” is a larger concept, including the support of the spiritual and religious needs of prison guards and staff, whose work in an often demanding and brutal environment often creates a special need for pastoral care, similar to the care that is extended to the military, police officers and fire fighters.

I have tried to break each page into resources that are specific to particular areas of ministry.
Page 1 – General Prison Ministry Resources
Page 2 – Ministry Resources towards the Incarcerated
Page 3 – Ministry Resources towards Families of the Incarcerated
Page 4 – Ministry Resources towards Children of the Incarcerated
Page 5 – Ministry Resources towards Personnel in Enforcement
Page 6 – Ministry Resources towards Victims of Crime

Please be patient with me as these are developed – this is a work in progress! Your constructive suggestions, suggestions for resources, requests for resources, are all welcome. Feel free to post under comments or email me directly: barefootpreachr (at) gmail (dot) com.

  1. Friday Night of Hope « Walking in the Wilderness

    [...] For years I have done ministry with people who have been incarcerated, people who have family members that have been incarcerated, and people who have been victimized by people who are now incarcerated. I’ve connected with people in ministry who are trying to break the cycle of crime and are sharing a consistent message and witness of hope. This work has helped me heal from the murder of my brother 15 years ago and has given his death a small measure of meaning for me. Although my involvement has morphed into something much different than it was in the past, I still have a heart for the ministries of justice and mercy. (You can see some free resources for this type of ministry here.) [...]
