Prison Ministry


We are a community of Christ-followers who believe in fulfilling Christ’s command to visit those in prison.

We live out that commission by sending teams into various prisons around our state to hold services and Bible studies, with the goal of building lasting relationships with incarcerated men and women that might result in genuine discipleship.

We seek to invest in the future success of the people we work with, and this is how we do it.


Inside Prison

We have Woodmen teams of men and women who weekly and monthly hold services and Bible studies for incarcerated men and women in Colorado. These services give us a chance to develop intentional relationships with people who need discipleship and mentoring.

Once an offender is released, they need emotional, spiritual and physical support. We provide that by walking alongside of people who are transitioning back into our community. The greatest thing we have to offer is relationship, and our greatest desire is to "do life" with these folks. While we help the transitioning offender with immediate physical needs, we are also offering them emotional/spiritual mentoring and helping them develop life skills that will make them self-sustainable.

We live out Christ's commission by serving the men and women who are released back into the community from Colorado’s prisons and jails.

We provide re-entry services for a successful transition. This help can be physical needs, life coaching, spiritual mentoring, and family support for family members. Our transitional ministry will be immediate and temporary, ending after the offender is stable. Those services include but are not limited to bus passes, clothes, cell phones, finding transitional/sober living, employment, and acquiring government documents. We are committed to offering help to everyone, regardless of their religion, yet it is our goal to show Christ in everything we do, to draw people to Him.

        If you would like to connect about re-entry services and resources please reach out to our team.

We build intentional relationships with offenders and families impacted by incarceration and want to transition back into the community, for the purpose of creating productive citizens, and building Christ-following disciples whenever possible.

It is our goal to help offenders successfully transition through their supervision in the community and to ultimately be self-sustaining. We consider a person a success if they have consistent employment, are able to pay all of their bills without outside help, they are saving money, and they are making good life choices that will keep them out of legal trouble.

I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me. Matthew 25:36
