Why Prison Ministry?

As a prison chaplain, I have devoted my life to jail ministry. Years ago I discovered that prison
inmates are a field ripe for the harvest. Many of them have hit bottom, ruined their families, and
wrecked their lives. When I am proclaiming the gospel to someone outside of jail, I often have to
start by convincing that person of the reality of sin. Generally that is not the case with inmates.
For the most part, they know they have sinned. If they forget that fact, they have an orange
jumpsuit to remind them.
