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.
