Prison / Jail Impact Ministries
National Prison Ministry
There are 70+ courses available in English and 40+ in Spanish. The free courses offered through the Prison Ministry are “popular” level and not for college credit. However, the courses are quite challenging and the transcripts from ECS Ministries are often used for parole hearings and entrance into further educational programs.”
Each coordinator has a curriculum which establishes a basic knowledge of God (salvation emphasized) and provides for more advanced courses as the student progresses. The initial course offered to inmates (for free) is entitled Born to Win. Some coordinators also include supplemental literature to ECS such as Navigator’s. Volunteers do all grading of courses through the coordinator’s area of responsibility from local churches, etc.
Jail Impact Ministries
|Outreach: The idea or vision behind Jail Impact Ministries is to meet the need of reaching the precious souls of men and women whose lives have been interrupted by prison time. Although there are literally hundreds of prison ministries actively serving in
History: The courses provided for use in this ministry are published by Emmaus Correspondence School (ECS), part of ECS Ministries. Emmaus Correspondence School commenced in 1942 and is acknowledged as the largest home-study Bible school in the world. Its courses have been translated into over 120 languages and are used in over 100 countries. Nearly 400,000 ECS courses are distributed annually to inmates in
Quality: Jail Impact Ministries combines the systematic study of biblical courses with the instruction and guidance offered by an instructor. Combining the resources of ECS with instructor interaction will provide student-inmates with solid biblical foundations that can transform lives. Courses have been developed for almost every need: for those with little or no Bible background, and for those who already know their way around in the Scriptures. Many letters on file testify to the personal blessing people have received through these studies. We pray you too will be blessed by the joy of sharing God’s Word through this ministry and the use of Emmaus Correspondence School materials. Further information about ECS Ministries will gladly be furnished upon request.
Blessings: Jail Impact Ministries can meet the needs of your local outreach and be used by God to transform lives. Many inmates become powerful witnesses to their family and other prisoners as well. What a blessing it is to see God work through men and women dedicated to serving Him!
