“God Behind Bars has made it possible for our church to reach the only completely unchurched group in America…those in prison. What a blessing to work with such amazing professionals that literally bridge the gap between church and state. I highly recommend them!” — Bil Cornelius, Church Unlimited
God Behind Bars partners with churches around the country to launch new campuses inside prisons and connect thousands of inmates and their families to Christ every single weekend.
We have partners in many nationally-known, cutting-edge churches, like Central Church in Las Vegas, Red Rocks Church in Denver, Fellowship Church in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Church By The Glades in Ft. Lauderdale, People’s Church in Oklahoma City, and many others!
Why partner with God Behind Bars?
We are the Department of Corrections’ most nationally-recognized prison ministry and we serve as a trusted bridge between the DOC and churches that want to make a difference in their community. Our church partners provide us with their weekend content and volunteers, and we do the rest! We give churches the tools, resources, and training to impact these inmates in a huge way without having to become experts on the details themselves. Using the latest audio and video equipment, we create a high-energy, relevant, high-definition theater experience inside of each prison, which begins a new multi-site campus for the church as well as moves inmates and their families to the next steps on a strategic journey of life change.
We’ll help you introduce inmates to Jesus through your weekend experiences, work with them to overcome addictions, prepare them with the necessary skills for a successful life, provide them with resources and ongoing support upon their release, and connect them to your church.
