We are a unique prison ministry that reaches inmates with the Gospel of Jesus Christ through athletics. Statistics show that the vast majority of prisoners will not attend a traditional religious program such as a chapel service or Bible study. However, inmates will gladly attend sporting events at which a gospel message is shared.

Most of the men and women that we encounter behind bars have hurting hearts and are desperate to experience Christ’s love and forgiveness. Many of them have been disowned by their families and forsaken by their friends.

Please join us as we use “the universal language” of sports to win inmates for Jesus Christ.


2014 Volunteer of the Year!

Winners have been announced for the Elaine Stephens Volunteer of the Year Award  for 2014 in both Regions. 

In the Northeast Region, Dave and April Kammeyer are recognized for their tireless efforts on behalf of SPM.  Dave is the Treasurer of the Board of Trustees and spent 2014 revamping our entire bookkeeping structure.  April is the birthday card Coordinator for the NE Region and oversees dozens of other volunteers while keeping the birthday cards flowing in a timely fashion.

In the Southeast Region, Barbara Cogliano took home the honor for her seemingly boundless energy, also in the area of birthday cards.  Barb took a fledgling program from our initial launch in 2010 and has built it into a smooth running machine.  She recruited a team of volunteers to help her and has never looked back.  The SE Regional Director was heard to comment that "other than sending her the list of names, I never think about the birthday cards because they are in such capable hands!"

Our heartfelt thanks and a big "Congratulations" to all three of these ministry friends - our work would be impossible without dedicated, passionate volunteers and these three individuals are the cream of the crop!
