GOOD NEWS JAIL & PRISON MINISTRY

Salt Lake County

 

Our Vision:

 

To reach every inmate in Salt Lake County with the Good News of Jesus Christ that they might become growing disciples .

 

 The work of Good News Jail & Prison Ministry is to plant and build the church of Jesus Christ around the world. Our work takes us to places most would never consider – jails and prisons – where we are seeing God do amazing things in the hearts and lives of men, women and children behind bars.

Our Mission:

To place Christian chaplains in jails and prisons to minister to the spiritual needs of inmates and staff.

 

We believe the most effective tool for ministering to the needs of inmates and staff is the daily presence of a chaplain. The chaplain serves as evangelist, pastor, counselor, mentor and friend to those who are incarcerated and the staff who guard and protect them.

 

Our Purpose:

To be used of the Lord in correctional facilities for:

 

+ Effective Evangelism – sharing the clear message of the Gospel

+ Biblical Discipleship – equipping believers to be devoted followers of Christ

+ Church Mobilization – challenging the church and community to partner in ministry to meet the needs of inmates.

 

Our programs and resources provide avenues for the community to participate as:

 

+ Volunteers

+ Financial Partners

+ Mentors

+ Re-entry Advocates
