The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities. It has been demonstrated that the greatest hope for an inmate to avoid returning to prison is to undergo a religious conversion experience during their incarceration.
Kairos brings together Christians from throughout the area to join in fellowship and change the lives of those impacted by incarceration, as well as building their own faith. Our volunteer servants touch the hearts and minds of over 200 inmates each year by listening, sharing the Word of God and showing the love of Christ. Volunteer opportunities for women are also available through the Kairos Outside program, which supports women whose lives has been impacted by the incarceration of a loved one.
Members of Grace Church have served in the men’s Kairos Inside ministry at Putnam Correctional Institution for over 20 years where we have reached over 200 inmates each year. While the ministry is limited in what we can do during the COVID pandemic, we are still reaching out through letters, limited visits and especially prayer to let the prisoners know they are not forgotten even during this time of being locked down. Grace Church members have supported this ministry through cards, letters, posters and prayer, including the children’s ministry.
