Prison Ministry

"...He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds..."

Who Are We?

Our purpose is to reach adults, who are or have been incarcerated and their families, by teaching them the whole counsel of God and sharing the benefits of the gospel of Jesus Christ. Ministry is shared through scheduled visitations to local prisons such as CFCF and Riverside Women’s Prison. Volunteers are recruited, trained, and mobilized to effectively minister to those who are incarcerated. The Prison Ministry has two components serving male and female prisoners.

Who Do We Serve?

We serve adults, male & female, ages 18 and up who are incarcerated or have been incarcerated and their families.

Every year, Angel Tree Christmas™ brings children and their incarcerated mom or dad together on Christmas, one gift at a time.

When Do We Meet?

  • Women's Prison ministry takes place on the 3rd Sunday of each month at Riverside Women's Prison.
  • Men's Prison Ministry takes place on the 1st Sunday and 3rd Sunday at the Detention Center and every 5th Sunday at PICC.

*At this time, on site visits have been discontinued due to the COVID 19 pandemic in accordance to the guidelines issued by the City of Philadelphia. Updates to this status will be posted on this website.
