Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (“Kairos”), a 501(c) (3) nonprofit organization, announces the start of a Kairos Torch program at the Giddings State School located in Giddings, Texas, beginning Friday, November 4th. The 2 ½ day Weekend event will be the first Kairos Torch Weekend at this facility and is another step forward in helping the youth impacted by incarceration to transform their lives.
Kairos Torch offers unconditional love and acceptance, encouraging male and female incarcerated youth ages 25 and under to share their life journey through participation in a long-term mentoring process.
The mission of the 2 ½ day Introductory Weekend is to encourage the participants to remove their masks, so that the real person can shine forth – rather than who they pretend to be. The Weekend is followed by Continuing Ministry that includes six months of weekly one-to-one mentoring of the youth by Kairos volunteers, monthly group Reunions, and weekly Bible studies.
Kairos is in need of volunteers for future Weekends. Opportunities include baking cookies, creating artwork, prayer, team support, financial support, and participating in a team.
