Mission Statement

We share the words of Jesus Christ with people impacted by incarceration.

About us

Our mission is to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to people who are serving time in jails and prison. We provide Bible correspondence courses, Bibles, and other printed spiritual materials for inmates free of charge. We also provide leadership training for lay Christians and pastors who are interested in beginning or expanding a jail or prison ministry.

Berean Church Prison Ministry is active on a number of fronts. Volunteers are needed to accomplish a variety of services: preparing regular mailings; correcting Bible correspondence tests returned to our office by inmates; and serving as pen pals to inmates.

Berean Church Prison Ministry is mission work. Most inmates are unchurched and many are searching for answers to spiritual questions. Opportunities to witness for Christ abound in prison ministry.

Brief History

Ministry to those in prison has always been part of church work (Hebrews 13:3). Our prison ministry became organized during the twentieth century when churches began to find ways to share the ‘love of Jesus’ with those confined to institutions. In Atlanta, this cooperative effort grew into Berean Church.

What started as a ministry to church members who were in prison quickly came to include outreach with the gospel to other prisoners as well. In 2007 our efforts to minister to prisoners took a great step forward when the Seniors assisted Berean Church Special Ministries in launching a nationwide ministry in providing religious material to prison chaplains and inmates.

Berean Church Prison Ministry now also prepares mentors for released offenders and trains church teams to conduct ministries for inmates of local jails. We continue to share Jesus with these troubled people through our Bible study correspondence courses, our pen pal program, face-to-face ministry, and mentoring.

Today the Berean Church Prison Ministry work together in providing material, training, and support in reaching souls serving time in prisons and jails throughout the United States.
