In Jail Ministry

Over the past 3 years we have provided Celebrate Recovery large group, open share and step studies, along with worship.  We have also provided a “Spiritual Principles of Recovery” class to 3 groups of women.  This curriculum was written and developed by Rev. Angy Trimmer.  We also partner with Centerstone to provide a Parenting Inside Out curriculum.  We have had dozens of women graduate from our classes during the past 3 years!  We also meet one on one with women and provide exit plans and help making the transition to the outside (reentry).


Our resident ladies are wonderful people and always look forward to meeting with us when we arrive.  We do more than bring in programs and classes, we bring in lasting relationships & we bring in LOVE and LIGHT!  We participate in the church release program and welcome these MCJ residents to our church services.

Upon completing our In Jail programs, they all receive certificates of completion and a celebration.  When they have completed their time of incarceration, many of the women come to FreshSTART for assistance in finding a place to live if they don’t have one (including our transitional Recovery Houses), we also assist in helping them find jobs and we provide support with bringing them back together with their families.
