THE LIGHT SHINES IN THE DARKNESS, AND THE DARKNESS HAS NOT OVERCOME IT.– JOHN 1:5
There are fewer places darker than a prison cell. There, separated from all that they ever knew or loved, men and women struggle with feelings of despair and hopelessness. As they search for some sense of meaning and purpose for their lives, they wonder if anyone outside the walls of the prison knows or cares about their struggles.
But even in the darkest places, there is Light.
For nearly 40 years, Prison Fellowship has been going into correctional facilities, sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those behind bars, and offering the hope of true transformation. Through the use of Bible-based programming, and with the help of thousands of committed volunteers, lives are being changed, hope is being restored, and darkness is being replaced with the promise of a future.
Volunteer opportunities via Prison Fellowship includes:
Minister to prisoners through a variety of programs, worship services, and events.
Deliver a gift and the Gospel to a prisoner’s child this Christmas
Advocate for a more restorative criminal justice system
OUTSIDE OF PRISON
Provide resources, encouragement, and advice to former prisoners
Join in prayer for prisoners, families, and communities

Romanian Christian Community Outreach: Prison Ministry Group
A group of Romanians, both younger and older, have partnered with Prison Fellowship to volunteer within their programs, both inside as well as outside of prison. Each potential volunteer has to apply individually via the Prison Fellowship website and go thru online training. However, we also meet as a group of volunteers to encourage each other as we provide spiritual support and encouragement to the prison inmates (or recently released prison inmates).
To become part of the Romanian Christian Community Outreach: Prison Ministry group please contact: Daniela Trifan 248-835-6822.
