Prison Minister Program

As believers in Jesus Christ, we know that we are no longer prisoners once we accept Him as our Lord and Savior. At Lady and Lion Church, we are committed to sharing this message with those who are incarcerated. We recognize that behind prison walls, individuals often feel forgotten, misunderstood, and burdened by shame and guilt. However, through Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, we have been set free.

We believe that many incarcerated individuals are called by God to serve in ministry, and we want to support them in fulfilling that calling. Through our Prison Minister Program, we aim to teach, support, and provide for these disciples of Christ. Our goal is to ordain these leaders of God and provide them with scripture support materials, bible study, and guidance to help break down the walls of despair for those behind prison walls and share about God’s love, perfect grace, and mercy.

Becoming an ordained Christian minister while in jail provides a sense of purpose and direction for prisoners, inspiring them to make positive changes in their lives. It also enables them to use their skills and knowledge to help other inmates find hope, healing, and spiritual guidance. Studies have shown that religious programs, including those that ordain Christian ministers, can have a positive impact on prisoner behavior and decision-making, reducing the likelihood of re-offending after release.

Our Prison Minister Program offers candidates a workbook with study guide, practice and a final test. Upon passing and completion, they will receive a certificate for ordination. We provide continued support and guidance to these ministers of Christ to help grow their ministry inside the prison and even after re-entry. For those who wish to dedicate their lives to living a life of servitude, we offer an extensive community support program to help find placement for the ministers to grow their ministry and provide them with a letter of recommendation.

If you know someone who has been called by God to minister to others while incarcerated, we want to hear from you. Please leave us your contact information, and we will respond promptly.

Matthew 28:18-20, Jesus tells his followers, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you.”
