Jail Ministry

Helping those who need it most . . .

Our Jail Ministry reaches out to people who are being held in the Ventury County Jail to share the good news about Jesus Christ.

Volunteers meet at the church by 7:30 am, and drive together. At 8:30 am, we are ushered into the jail to meet with inmates.

We don't have a set sermon, so each volunteer brings a Bible and perhaps a Bible verse or story to share. The prisoners sign up to attend, so when we arrive they are ready and eager to talk with us. We read the Bible, pray, give our testimonies and listen to their life stories. 

At 10 am, we leave the facility and head home. Usually, we are back at church in time for second service at 10:45 am. Without exception, our volunteers say they feel blessed to be able to visit with the inmates and offer God's hope, compassion and love to them.
