Volunteer

There are always opportunities to volunteer with The Saints Prison Ministry. No matter what area you choose to serve in, you are sure to find ministering to inmates very rewarding.

Athletics

Use your basketball, soccer, softball or volleyball talents for the Lord. We are always looking for new missionary athletes to join our teams. Your involvement allows us to expand into new regions of ministry impact, as well as continue to deepen relationships in areas currently being served.

Board Service

Potential Board members are interviewed and considered at regular intervals throughout the year. Requirements and qualifications aree available upon request.

Bulk Mailing Assistant

Volunteers who gather in key regions to assist with bulk mailings are very much appreciated, as the need is greater than our staff can accomplish alone.

CyberSaints

If you are computer-savvy, there are a number of areas that offer the opportunity to volunteer from the comfort of your own living room. Reviewing electronic records, social media, and website updates can be done from anywhere.

Event Support

Every prison event in which we engage offers multiple opportunities for service beyond athletics. Volunteers are need for assistance in distributing literature, sharing the Gospel one-on-one, driving the bus, and visiting with spectators during the games.

Financial Support

Give to The Saints Prison Ministry as the Lord leads. If you do not have the ability to give yourself, perhaps you could mention us to your church family, your friends or even your employer. Whether you choose to support a specific missionary-athlete, a particular special project or trip, or provide Bibles, Gospels of John, athletic equipment or other materials your financial support is greatly appreciated and always tax-deductible.

Host a Dessert Night

Open your home and invite your friends and family over for an evening of introduction to our ministry. We will provide a speaker to explain what we do and how you can get involved. We will even supply the dessert!

Jericho Team Member

Jericho Discipleship Teams provide regular face-to-face mentoring for men and women behind bars. These teams meet either weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly to conduct worship services and Bible studies with inmates. Join a Jericho team and help reach inmates today!

Office Volunteers

Bible Correspondence Courses may be graded in our New Jersey office during normal business hours, or general office work such as folding, sorting and filing is always helpful.

Pen Pal

Reach out to lonely men and women behind bars though our pen pal program. Our policy is for men or married couples to write to male inmates and for female pen pals to write to female inmates. Other security precautions are in place to make this a safe and enjoyable experience.

Prayer

Prayer Partners – We send an updated Prayer & Praise list to our Prayer Partners on a weekly basis via email and monthly for those who prefer regular mail. You can also access our Prayer & Praise requests online.

Prayer Warriors – Prayer Warriors pray specifically for inmates who have filled out response cards at our games. We send five cards to each Prayer Warrior monthly and ask that they pray for these prisoners at least once a week. At the end of the month, each Prayer Warrior receives five new cards.

Spanish Correspondence

An estimated 20% of the inmates who are enrolled in our Bible Correspondence School are Spanish speaking. We always have openings for people who know Spanish and are willing to grade Bible courses and to serve as pen pals.

Special Gifts

Perhaps you have a unique skill set that can be used for His service. Examples include graphic design, website design, IT, and more. We are open to whatever God leads you to offer!

Announcements

We’re Still Working!

I have a hard time defining what we do as “work”.  Yes, we are laboring and completing tasks, but when it is a passion and a calling the word “work” seems inadequate.

Let’s say instead that our entire staff is still hard at the process of preparing for the 2020 summer season.  Following the Lord’s leading, we have been very proactive in staying in touch with prisons, rescheduling events before they become a problem, and monitoring our finances closely.

We have rescheduled the opening of our 2020 softball season for June 6, five weeks later than previously planned, but all the prisons appreciated that we contacted them – they are anxious to have us back and we now have committed dates into October, providing the restrictions and precautions allow it.

Our teams are equally excited about getting back to the mission of introducing inmates to Jesus and we have been actively preparing for softball crusade season to resume in July (remember we conducted one in March before things fell apart).  We have three teams slated for July crusades and they are all completely booked with prisons chomping at the bit to get back to some sense of normalcy!

My request is that you continue to pray for the Saints Prison Ministry’s leadership; we are laser-focused on what God has for us, and we have seen validation in the last couple months that we appear to be walking the path that the Lord is leading.  Pray that we continue to see His hand in our decisions, as well as praying for those inmates we will [eventually] be called to love……face-to-six-feet-away-face!

Serving Him gladly,
