June Prayer Focus: Prison Fellowship Ministry

INFORM: What is the purpose of your ministry? What are you doing on a daily/weekly/monthly basis to accomplish the tasks God has set out for you to do?

Members of OMPC volunteer with Prison Fellowship Ministry to offer a multi focal ministry to offenders and their families, both during and after their incarceration, and to their victims and to the staff of the correctional industry.

OMPC members are engaged in a multi-year re-entry ministry at Bibb County Correctional Facility.  Bibb is a 1900 man medium security State of Alabama facility.  We began serving at Bibb in 2010.  Over 300 men have participated in our Transformational Ministry (TM) program over the years.  About 120 are currently active.  37 courses, each 12 weeks in length are required over the first two years.  OMPC members plus individuals from other churches are at Bibb 4 days each week leading classes.  Hugh Davis and Julian Andrews are at Bibb all day Monday and Thursday.  We counsel, assist with reentry placement, and offer suggestions to the Parole Board as their release is considered.

INSPIRE: What is your ministry's vision? What is a story of impact that you would like OMPC members to hear that would inspire them with what God is doing in/through your ministry?

DB was incarcerated as a teenager and has been in prison for 41 years.  He has never had a driver’s license, never had a girlfriend, and did not graduate from high school.  He has no one in the free world that maintains contact with him.  5 years ago he became part of the TM program, 3 years ago he accepted Christ.  Since then he has had a miraculous change in attitude and relationships.  He will be going before the parole board in the next few months.  If he is released he will be given $10 and a bus ticket to the county where he was sentenced.  5 years ago he would be doomed to be returned to prison, today he has a strong chance to have a successful reentry to society.

ENGAGE: How can OMPC members get involved? Whether it's one-time or ongoing, what are ways OMPC members can plug in?

The ministry needs volunteers to go into the Prison and teach classes to the inmates.  This would require a half-day a week for 12-13 weeks.  Many of the classes are taught in the day time, some in the early evening.   Teaching weekend seminars are also needed.
