IF YOU POUR YOURSELF OUT FOR THE HUNGRY AND SATISFY THE DESIRE OF THE AFFLICTED, THEN SHALL YOUR LIGHT RISE IN THE DARKNESS AND YOUR GLOOM BE AS THE NOON DAY(Isaiah 58:10).
Through the work of over 10 volunteers AGLOM prison Ministry brings the light, love and friendship of Jesus Christ into the lives of prisoners and their families. They learn they are forgiven, and they learn they are loved. It is truly a life changing, and often life saving experience.
“…..I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
AGLOM creates Christian communities inside prisons that can transform lives, decrease prison violence and reduce recidivism (Psalms 107:14) .Why we serve prisoners (Matthew 25:40)
The prison environment is a dark place, where prisoners face violence, anger, gangs and loneliness daily. Through talks, discussions and Chapel meditations prisoners learn that they are worthy of God’s love, light and grace. That no matter who they are or what they have done, God forgives them.
When a former negative or gang leader accepts Christ, it can influence the very atmosphere of a prison for the better. As the AGLOM Christian community inside a prison grows and begins to gain influence, the incidence of violence often decreases.
We endeavour to minister to men and women in prison, changing hearts, transforming lives and impacting the world.
