Ways to Serve as a Kairos Volunteer
Thinking of volunteering for Kairos? We would LOVE to have you join the 30,000 volunteers who are already passionate about our mission!
There are many opportunities for you to serve in Kairos Prison Ministry. All we ask is that you have a willing heart and a spirit of obedience and you can play a crucial role in God's ministry of Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives and Impacting the World. Here's some basic information to help you "get involved."
Be a Team Member
Kairos Prison Ministry volunteers come from all walks and strata of life. They all share a desire to follow Christ's admonition of Matthew 25:36, "I was in prison and you visited me."
There are three programs in Kairos Prison Ministry:
• Kairos Inside, ministering to men and women in prison
• Kairos Outside, ministering to women who have been impacted by incarceration
• Kairos Torch, which ministers to incarcerated youth in prisons and correctional facilities
All Kairos Ministry activities are covered with prayer. You can volunteer to be a part of that prayer effort every Tuesday at 1:00 pm EST. Visit our Prayer page for more information on how to participate.
Be a Ministry Financial Donor
All Kairos activities are funded by donations. If you would like to support this ministry by your donation, make your check payable (any amount is appreciated!) to Kairos Prison Ministry International and send it to the our office at the address below, or make a donation online.
Be a Support Volunteer
Each Kairos retreat weekend has opportunities for outside volunteer support, such as baking cookies, creating artwork (agape) or preparing meals.
Visible Agape is artwork which is posted on the walls of the community room for the participants to read throughout the Weekend. Signed placemats and posters made by children (first name and age only) are also especially treasured by prisoners. If you would like to send agape to an upcoming Weekend, please click on a specific Weekend on our Kairos Calendar for details on where to send it.
Be a Cookie Baker
We may need up to dozens and dozens of cookies for a typical Kairos weekend. May God bless you for the gift of baking!
