incarceration to incorporation
I first met Carlos only a few days after he was paroled from a California State Prison. The first thing I noticed was his infectious smile and bright demeanor.
A few weeks ago I attended a local church that works closely with our ministry. We shared a meal together and listened to a great message.
One day I stepped into our TUMI (The Urban Ministry Institute) classroom to check on a student who was studying and heard her on the phone.
Randy and Monica grew up together; they had been friends most of their lives. Their friendship was filled with ups and downs, but neither of them could have planned the journey God had for them.
Ministry behind bars can seem attractive—there is a clear need for restoration and redemption in our prisons.
