Cement walls and iron doors muffle a continual cry for help from the men and women in Kentucky’s correctional facilities. Nearly 24,000 are serving time. Many come from broken, fatherless homes; many are repeat offenders; and many lose hope, caught in a continual cycle of sin and substance abuse. Without the hope of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, many will never become free on the inside, facing a hopeless eternity and destitute life.
Since 2004, volunteers and chaplains from Kentucky Jail Ministries have been restoring hope and encouraging broken hearts and lives. John Quincy Adams once said, “Duty is ours, results are God’s.” We believe it is our responsibility to “remember those in prison as if we were their fellow prisoners.” If we don’t carry the hope of the Gospel, who will?
From volunteering to financial contributions, there are many ways you can make a difference in the lives of these men and women.
