Welcome to our Prison Ministry, Pastors to Prisoners
Did you know...
California Prison Population
is decreasing by Supreme Court order, but at one point was more than 170,000 inmates. This prison population is
aging. Most prisoners are nonwhilte. A majority of prisoners (just over
50%) are serving time for violent crimes. Most prisoners serve determinate
sentences, but the number of "strikers" is growing. The prison
population experiences frequent turnover.

Something must be done!
Warehousing criminals won't "fix" them any more than storing your
broken TV in the garage will make it work again in five years. They need
to change. With upwards of 5000 men in a prison, State Chaplains average
only 2 hours per week per prison yard in actual one-to-one ministry with
inmates. A privately funded, full-time volunteer yard Pastor is
desperately needed ton each prison yard to "stand in the gap" on a
daily basis and teach these men how to use the tools in Scripture to make good
decisions that will result in productive citizens when they are released.
How you can help...
Support HIS work through financial support of Pastors to Prisoners.
Pastors to Prisoners is a California nonprofit religious organization. If
so called, please "Come and See" the ministry at work in the
prisons. You are invited to come to one of our prisons and sit in on
services and see for yourself what is happening and how the ministry
works. Our Yard Pastors would love for you to witness God's work in the
prisons first hand!
