Our outreach into the
community includes sharing Christ's love with those who are
incarcerated in the El Dorado Correctional Facility.
In obedience to God's call to visit the prisoner (Matthew
25:34-40) volunteers with the Kairos Prison Ministry conduct
a highly structured program designed to introduce Christ to
those who so desperately need Him.
The Kairos program brings
both positive and negative leaders from the inmate
population together for a three day weekend event of
carefully coordinated talks, discussions, chapel meditations
and music led by the loving spirit of the servant
volunteers. During this event, each participant is
given the opportunity to experience Christ's great love and
forgiveness and accept God's call to a life of Christian
witness and service to one another during their stay in the
institution, and beyond.
After the weekend,
participants are encouraged to establish strong Christian
communities through ongoing participation in Pray and Share
groups of 3 to 5 residents and monthly reunions. These
small groups meet weekly to share their lives on a deep
spiritual level and to pray for one another, other
residents, and the staff in the institution.
