Kairos Prison Ministry Participating in 2019 Giving Tuesday on December 3 to Raise Funds for Prison Ministry Growth

By   November 1, 2019

Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. has joined the #GivingTuesday movement to help raise funds to expand operations.  Kairos is a Christian faith based ministry which addresses the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women, youth, and their families. To continue operations and address the needs of the many requests they receive for new growth, they are hoping to raise funds for Kairos Weekends and to recruit new volunteers.

Occurring this year on December 3, #GivingTuesday encourages philanthropy and celebrates generosity by inspiring people to give back in impactful ways to causes they support. Kairos has created a webpage specifically for #GivingTuesday at www.kairosprisonministry.org/givingtuesday.php which is live and now accepting contributions.

“Kairos is blessed with more than 30,000 volunteers worldwide serving in more than 500 locations. However, we still have requests, more than 100 prisons worldwide, which want the Kairos program but we either don’t have the volunteers or resources to accommodate them at this time,” said Evelyn Lemly, CEO.

Studies have shown a significantly reduced recidivism rate for Kairos participants versus non-Kairos participants which reduces the cost of further imprisonment. Additionally, Kairos programs improve the prison environment, reconcile families, and make communities safer as participants learn to live and walk in the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ.

    Hello Kairos
    I thank God for this ministry. I’d like to know if you are in the Chesapeake, Va area ? My companion is incarcerated and we are looking forward to his release . We’re hoping for a early release, if not he is due to be released in May 2021.His name is Bobby . Please keep him in prayer. Thank you and God bless you.

    I have a beloved prayer partner and brother-in-Christ who is an active Kairos team member in Texas. He shares the Kairos devotionals designed to spiritually prepare him for his team’s weekend prison visitation. These Scripture based meditations produce a greater sensitivity to the Holy Spirit’s work in one’s life. They require you to keep a journal of your reactions to the Biblical passage and it’s corresponding question.

    My life has been richly blessed by these devotionals and my spirit uplifted by the documented remarks made by the inmates participants. As a quadriplegic, it is impossible for me to directly participate with my Christian brother; however, I do pray for the success of the worldwide Kairos weekend visitations on Tuesday at 1:30. The effectiveness of the Kairos ministry in changing inmate lives and the lives of their loved ones and the lives of the Kairos volunteers is well documented. All glory to God and His kingdom on earth and in heaven!❤️🙏
