WHAT IS THE PRISON MINISTRY?
The Prison Ministry is a huge part of our correspondence school. Prison Coordinators all across the country visit prisons and offer Emmaus Bible correspondence courses to prisoners.
MESSAGE FROM A PRISON MINISTRY DIRECTOR
“I do not know of any more fertile ground for the gospel in all of the United States than our jails and prisons . . .
. . . I often ask them, ‘How many of you would have given me two minutes of your time when you were out on the streets?’ The answer, almost always, is none of them. . .
. . .It is a rare week that we don’t find at least one prisoner reporting that he or she has been born again as a result of the Emmaus courses. . .”
– (North Carolina Prison Ministry Director)
IS THIS MINISTRY WORKING?
Louis Dooley is perhaps the most widely known testament in the past few years to just how much the Prison Ministry is impacting the lives of prisoners. His book contains a gripping story of how Christians in prison used Emmaus Courses to reach Louis' clouded heart and change his life dramatically!
As a thanks for donating to the Prison Ministry, we will send you a copy of Louis' Prison Saved My Life!
HOW ARE MY DONATED FUNDS USED?
Emmaus International uses donations to subsidize the cost of Emmaus Courses for prisioners. Withough this support, Prison Coordinators would not be able to afford giving so many courses to inmates.
The Prison Ministry would not exist if it weren't for your support through prayer, time, and donations!
“Recently other inmates who aren’t very knowledgeable of the Bible have come up to me asking me questions about certain aspects of God’s Word. Thanks to these correspondence courses I’ve been able to help them find the answers to those questions in the Word. Praise God!”
"Men Who Met the Master has really helped me during a tremendous struggle in my life. Being incarcerated allows me plenty of opportunity to show my respects to God by being faithful and obedient around other men and women that have been looked down on. I anxiously await the next course.”
“Thank you so much for grading this and sending my results back. I am growing and growing every day with God! I was 12 years old when I got saved. When I was 18 years old I dedicated my life to Christ. Then I got into the wrong crowd and messed up my life. I am now fixing my life! I really love the verse John 3:16. The very best verse ever! The heavenly Father is with me forever and always. I have faith and Christ in my heart.”
