Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been able to carry out our usual in-prison ministries since March 2020. We are asking God our Father to open the prison and jail gates once more, so we may resume proclaiming the hope of Jesus Christ behind bars.
Prior to the pandemic, we conducted monthly and quarterly services in a number of Illinois Department of Corrections (IDOC) facilities, held multi-day Prayer Conferences, and participated in IDOC Reentry Summits. We adjust to the needs, facility spaces, and access we are granted, and enjoy good relationships with many IDOC leaders, wardens, chaplains and counseling staff.
We have been able to continue weekly one-on-one visits at the DuPage County Jail, located in our hometown of Wheaton, Illinois.
