Rebuilding Lives, Restoring Hope

Since 2004, the volunteers and chaplains of Kentucky Jail Ministries have provided Bibles, discipleship and basic life skills developmental resources to the men and women in Kentucky’s correctional facilities.  Nearly every day of the week, a member of the KJM team is visiting incarcerated men and women, sharing encouragement, building faith and providing hope in hopeless situations.  Equipping inmates for successful reentry into society and, more importantly, equipping them for eternity is the number one priority of our volunteers and chaplains.

Our Bibles, resources, Life Skills 101 curriculum are always provided free-of-charge to inmates and their families.
