Got any? We’ve found…

And this ministry looks awesome. But we’re trying to dig as deeply as we can. Where can we find great guidance for visiting inmates, helping them transition to the outside world when they’re released, helping them with reentry counseling, helping them find good jobs and great small groups that will facilitate close walks and bold witness for Christ. Got any leads?

    Try New Life Behavior Ministries. They have a curriculum successfully used in jail ministries and in many countries. It was officially adopted by the state of Texas legislature for use in prisons. It fits very well with a DMM style approach, with emphasis on discovery, obedience, and transformation in community of other believers.
    see http://www.nlbm.org for more information.

    Youth for Christ’s Juvenile Justice Ministry is probably the largest ministry with teens in prison. Our website has lots of resources or you can try and contact your local Youth for Christ for more info. The website is http://www.yfc.net/jjm .

    CHARM Prison Ministry and Union Baptist Association, both in Houston, have a wealth of knowledge on church planting in prison ministry and re-entry.

    The American Bible society has a great resource. It is The Trauma Healing Institute course called Healing the Wounds of Trauma. I know of several prisons using this material. It is being used globally in many different settings.
