Both Inside and Outside

Mentor Ministry

This is the greatest need we have for both the men and women coming out of prison.

  • Meet one on one with an inmate/mentee who has been selected for you on a regular basis in prison (at least twice a month)

  • Using the materials provided by Along Side Ministries:

    • Work with the mentee on developing Godly character

    • Teach them how to cope with challenges and triggers once they are released.

    • Help them develop goals and an action plan for the transition from prison to society.

    • Help them complete documentation and skills required for employment

    • Teach them basic money management and budgeting

    • Teach them how to develop healthy relationships with others


At least a 15-month commitment and could be longer.
