Vision Statement

Our vision is to be a faith base community that provides and support a ministry that assist the men and women who are returning back into our society after incarceration.

To prevent youth and young adults from entering the criminal justice system through guidance, encouragement and mentoring.

To equip the offenders with the necessary support and resources needed to become productive members of society.

Trained mentors will provide guidance, encouragement, counseling, coping and life coach skills in collaboration with Division of Prisons, Chaplaincy Services support.

To provide ministries that will support the prison facilities in our community.

Why Should You Care?
The transitions from a life of confinement and institutionalization to freedom comes with a great deal of new responsibilities and a maze of conflicting emotions. For the average everyday citizen surviving and thriving in the outside world is a day to day challenge. It is no wonder that those leaving a period of incarceration will find it very difficult, on their own, to obtain the things that we take for granted - food, clothing, housing, job assistance, family integration and emotional support. Reentry into society can be very difficult for these men and women.

First Calvary Baptist Church’s Prison Ministry would like to invite all members and guest to take advantage of our Prison Ministry Correspondence Program. The purpose of this Ministry effort is to introduce our Ministry to those who are incarcerated. Our goal is to encourage and lift their spirit through letting them know that God cares for them and we care for them and want to see them make a successful transition back into the community as a returning citizen.
