Description of Service
REST Ministries helps the Captive through a Prison Ministry for the Incarcerated and Aftercare Programs for Ex-Offenders. Most people incarcerated within prison walls come from abusive and/or addictive family backgrounds. They have learned to block their pain by becoming abusive and/or addicted themselves. In prison they are forced to see the reality and consequences of their choices, often leaving them broken. Desperate for hope, they are finally open to the gospel.
REST ministers to the incarcerated in local county prisons through:
- Bible studies
- support groups
- spending time one-on-one with inmates
REST ministers to ex-offenders with aftercare programs including: mentoring discipleship opportunities . All of this is done to encourage them in their walk with the Lord.
We also provide the following services:
- Cards of Encouragement
- Cards of encouragement are sent weekly to each inmate that attends a REST Bible study or support group. For some, this is the only mail they receive.
- A Pen Pal Program. A Pen Pal Program has been established by REST Ministries to link mature Christians with inmates in state prisons who want a Christian to write to them. It has blessed both the inmates and mature Christians as each learns from the other and their relationship grows. Click here if you would like information about becoming a pen pal to an inmate.
