Prison Work

The psychology of the Seventh-day Adventist prison ministry outreach is based on Matt. 25:36 : “I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” A unified prison ministry program, covering many aspects of prison ministry, such as counseling, ministry to inmates’ families, rehabilitation of inmates, halfway houses, and worship services, has been developed. The central purpose of SDA prison ministry is to bring the comfort and hope of the gospel of Christ to lost men and women, and to plant the seed for the Holy Spirit to water. Special literature and guidelines for starting prison ministry are available.
