Bible Correspondence

We operate a free Bible Correspondence School for inmates, ex-offenders and their families. When inmates fill out a response card at one of our games, we send a package of information to them including the opportunity to enroll in this program. Students complete Bible studies and then mail them to us for grading and review. We currently have 800 English and Spanish-speaking inmate students enrolled.

“I will count it as one of God’s bigger blessings in my spiritual growth to be affiliated to your ministry through your Bible studies. Jesus is the only reason I have been able to survive these last twelve years of incarceration in man’s prison. I’m not perfect except Christ in me. Thank God for ministries such as yours that help inmates such as myself to stay focused on His word.”

~ Michael R., Union CI, Raiford, FL


Pen Pal Program

Many of the men and women behind bars are lonely and long to correspond with someone on the outside. Our Pen Pal Program serves as a safe outlet for volunteers to correspond with inmates. Our Pen Pal Program provides an opportunity for people “on the outside” to encourage and show Christ’s love and forgiveness to prisoners.


Birthday Card Ministries

It may seem simple, but one of our most effective ministries is sending birthday cards to inmates. Each of the 25,000 inmates on our mailing list receives a hand-signed birthday card on his or her birthday. Each card sent also includes a newsletter designed specifically for inmates. This outreach to the incarcerated is one way to remind them that they are loved and thought about even though they seem separated from the “outside” world.

“I recently received my birthday card from your organization. I must admit however, that I was taken back and surprised that you all remembered and cared enough to send me one. I must also admit that I was overjoyed because of it. Moreover, the newsletter enclosed in the card helped me and gave me timely encouragement over a situation I was going through.”~ Omar B., South Woods SP, Bridgeton, NJ
“This is just a note to say thank you for the birthday card. The card has special meaning because I was not expecting anyone to wish me a happy birthday. I’ve been locked up for a long time and have since stopped receiving mail.”~ Terell M., Kinross CF, Kincheloe, MI
“By the grace of God I am able to correspond to you and give praise and thanks for your organization. I have consistently received a birthday card for about 13 years. You may not be aware of how much it can mean to receive that one card, even if it’s from someone you don’t know. Thank you for being there all these years.”~ Gilbert W., SCI Dallas, Dallas, PA

We must regretfully announce that the SPM softball season 2020 is officially cancelled. After previously announcing the cancellation of many crusades - and the softball seasons for IL, NJ, and PA – this message serves to inform everyone that all softball events still pending are now also cancelled.

We have been in touch with the DOC Volunteer Coordinators on a weekly basis since early July, and more recently have received counsel from a high-ranking DOC official that nothing is likely to change until at least October, leading us to this painful decision.

Thank you all for your patience, as well as your passion. We do not know what the future holds, except to say that we anticipate being “back in business” in 2021 and every prison we talked to is anxiously awaiting the day we can return. There may be new protocols in place by then, but there is no virus strong enough to stop the Gospel message from reaching those who need to hear it!
