The commitment of the Prison Ministry is to provide an outreach for ex-offenders, and, in particular, those with children. Our goal is to assist them in their transition back into society and help them in their realizing their God-given potential. Our ministry focuses on God's word, which says that we are mandated to be aware of social consciousness and concern for others. We provide assistance through various aspects of ministry, i.e., visitation, communication, provisions, Bible study, evangelism and fellowship. In addition, we also work on behalf of family members, friends and children who are affected by incarceration.

Prison Fellowship reaches out to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families both as an act of service to Jesus Christ and as a contribution to restoring peace to our cities and communities endangered by crime.

Also see the International Network of Prison Ministries,, a website connecting people to ministries that help to strengthen a relationship with Christ, is shutting down in February 2011. The site’s owner has allowed others to distribute its very helpful information, including the DC area’s regional page. CU's information is not comprehensive, but it is substantial. The DC regional page is posted, with minor changes, on TCDC in this series.

  2. The first comprehensive Christian "survival guide" for men living behind bars is now available from Thomas Nelson/WestBow Press, called DAILY LIGHT ON THE PRISONER'S PATH.

    DLPP incorporates all of the original morning and evening Scripture readings (KJV) from the original Daily Light, along with brief straightforward teachings on Christian spiritual formation suited to prisoners: anger, true repentance, spiritual warfare, forgiveness, prayer, doing time purposefully, and much more.

    Both Prison Fellowship and The Chuck Colson Center for Christian Worldview have recently selected DLPP for inclusion on their exclusive reading lists for prisoners.
