Church of the King's Prison Ministry is committed to presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ to the men and women in the local correctional facilities. We provide live streamed Sunday services and interactive small group meetings throughout the week.
If you would like us to pray for you or someone you know who is currently incarcerated, please fill out the Prayer Request Form.
Although each facility is unique, they share one priority, the safety of the inmates, deputies, and volunteers.
Be prepared to serve for 2.5 hours during Sunday services. This includes the time required to get through security.
Primarily, only the material necessary for Sunday service is permitted. Your team leader will provide this material. You may bring your personal Bible to most facilities. Drinks, food, candy, or cell phones are not allowed. If you must bring medication, you are required to leave it with deputies prior to entering the security gate.
One of the most important factors in prison ministry is consistency and faithfulness in our commitment. Teams serving Sunday services are scheduled on a rotation of 2 services each month. Every serve opportunity relies on the efforts of a team and will not be interrupted if you are unable to serve.
It is likely you will find yourself connecting with the inmates and feeling compassionate toward their plight. However, the facilities policies do not allow ministry volunteers to give anything to an inmate that is not previously approved. Nothing can be given to, or taken from, an inmate at any time that has not been approved by Church of the King leadership and DOC.
DOC policies state that volunteers who physically minister inside a correctional facility, are not allowed to visit, write to, or give money to an inmate. Nor may a volunteer associate with an inmate’s family members.
Under no circumstances are you allowed to provide personal information to an inmate. If you would like for an inmate to send something to you, have him/her send it to the Church of the King Little Creek Campus.
If you know someone who is currently incarcerated that would like to join a small group, or if you have additional questions about Prison Ministry, please complete the form below.
