Prison Ministry

The Lord instructs each of us to “GO into the world and preach the gospel to every creature.” (Mark 16:15). He also commands us, “To proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound,” (Isaiah 61: 1).

If you feel that the Lord is calling you to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ to the inmates in the Hamilton Detention Centre, then consider this invitation to join Victory’s Prison Team.

Every week, a team from Victory goes to the jail on Barton Street in Hamilton to pour out the love of God to inmates. The saving gospel message of Jesus is shared with the result that souls are saved and lives are changed. In many cases, inmates share the good news of Jesus Christ with their families so those families are then set free by the powerful message of salvation.

The Prison Ministry has been organized so that each team member ministers in the jail one evening per month. The teams consist of two or three volunteers who minister together in sharing the life-changing message of Jesus Christ.

PRAYER IS NEEDED: If you feel God tugging on your heart regarding Prison Ministry but you find you’re not able to actually go to the jail, please sign up as a prayer warrior for the inmates at Hamilton Detention Centre. We will send you the names and needs of the inmates we minister to. You can then cover them in prayer as we seek for great victories in their lives.

LOVE AND COMPASSION: Would you like to nurture/disciple an inmate once he/she is released from jail? If you have a heart of love and compassion, then you’re perfect for this aspect of the Prison Ministry. We’re seeking out those who would want to pour into the life of an inmate that comes to Victory for fellowship and to hear God’s Holy Word. Please join us and let us know that this is your area of interest in this Ministry. We’ll be sure to get in touch with you to discuss the needs of inmates who have been released.
