Proclaim. Disciple. Connect.

Jesus said, “I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.” - Luke 5:32

On any given day there are approximately 17,000 inmates housed within 7 Los Angeles county jail facilities.

Every single one needs to hear the good news of Jesus Christ.

As men and women who have received God’s mercy and salvation, Only Hope Prison Ministries exists to make the hope of the gospel known to men and women incarcerated in Los Angeles County and beyond.

Proclaim – We declare the gospel, calling men and women to turn from their sin and trust in Christ for forgiveness and salvation.

Disciple – We build relationships with men and women who demonstrate the desire to follow Christ and encourage them toward a life of faith and obedience.

Connect – We bridge the gap between the jail and the church, introducing inmates to faithful local churches and faith-based rehabilitation programs.

Equip – We train jail and prison chaplains across the country to be faithful ministers of God’s Word in correctional settings.
