Prison Fellowship leads classes at the correctional facility in Stillwater on Tuesday and Thursday nights designed to equip men with skills necessary for successful reentry upon release.
Materials such as Financial Peace University by Dave Ramsey; Chip Ingram; Love, Sex & Dating by Andy Stanley; Crucial Conversations by Joseph Grenny; Celebrate Recovery; Authentic Manhood; Multiply by Francis Chan and others are used to equip the men.
If this speaks to you, you are welcome to accompany Kevin Gjertsen for a visit to see this ministry in action. Kevin can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or cell phone (651)600-1880.
Here's what Prison Fellowship says about their in-prison ministry..
"There are fewer places darker than a prison cell. There, separated from all that they ever knew or loved, men and women struggle with feelings of despair and hopelessness. As they search for some sense of meaning and purpose for their lives, they wonder if anyone outside the walls of the prison knows or cares about their struggles.
But even in the darkest places, there is Light.
For nearly 40 years, Prison Fellowship has been going into correctional facilities, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those behind bars, and offering the hope of true transformation. Through the use of Bible-based programming, and with the help of thousands of committed volunteers, lives are being changed, hope is being restored, and darkness is being replaced with the promise of a future."
