How YOU can Help
In the Past, Inmate's Tithed to their church
In the early years of this ministry, it was exciting to see the inmates who attended chapel services to actually tithe part of their meager prison job earnings to help sponsor missionaries and Bible translators working in other countries. Today, it is not allowed for them to tithe so they support the ministry inside with their prayers and spirit.
Pastors to Prisoners is a California non-profit. Gifts made to Pastors to Prisoners are tax deductible. Contributors have the option of expressing specific in the work of one or more of our pastors.
We also pray that the Lord will bring more potential Yard Pastors to us. We invite you to "Come and See" our ministry in action by visiting one of the prisons and attending Chapel services with the inmates and the Yard Pastor.
If God is calling you to help in this ministry, please follow His call by helping us in any way you can. Below are ways that you can help.
