The Incarcerated Church posted by John Sorensen on Aug 24, 2017
Does your church have a jail or prison ministry? Do you ever think about the incarcerated church – the men and women who are behind bars all across our nation?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International. Can you imagine what it must be like knowing that your Mom or Dad, Son or Daughter are behind bars? In Hebrews chapter 13 we’re reminded to “Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them. . .” I think we often apply that verse to the Persecuted Church worldwide, but that verse also applies to the more than 2 million people who make up our current jail and prison population. Just think what would happen if more people of faith got involved not only with the prisoners but with the families of prisoners offering them the help and healing that comes through the saving power of Jesus Christ. Many of these inmates will return home. Imagine the difference it will make if they know Jesus.
