An important component of our ministry activities is linking churches, pastors, church small groups, and mentors to those in need. It is estimated that 1 in 20 people are now impacted in some way by the justice system in America.
We have advised churches on launching prison ministry programs, trained volunteers, established relationships with area correctional facilities, and helped church groups identify volunteers as well as families in need.
We can offer guidance on numerous topics. Contact our office for more information.
During COVID, Manny Mill arranged for Pastor Ron Zappia and several campus ministers from Highpoint Church to spend the day (outside!) at Stateville Correctional Center, walking the campus in prayer with Warden Dave Gomez and delivering soap, toothpaste, shampoo, and bottled water for the inmates. Several of our regular volunteers and board member Jon Romano joined the team in praying for inmates and staff.
Manny and leaders within the Koinonia ministry have introduced us to key IDOC decision makers, and advised us on establishing a church plant in an Illinois correctional center. His advice and connections have been invaluable as we have set out on this project. We could not have done this without Manny.”
