The Prison Pen Pal Ministry's Goal is to love and encourage inmates unconditionally in the Lord and share the Good News of Jesus Christ through correspondence.
Prisoner's lives can be significantly improved and sometimes even saved for the price of a postage stamp.
Letter writing is a vital part of The Rock Church Prison Ministry involvement. It allows Christians to reach out and share Jesus' love and God's forgiveness. It assist in the process of recidivism and breaking the cycle of crime and substance abuse. Giving individuals attention by way of correspondence with care, love and understanding. With a Christ-like attitude we can give hope to a broken heart and a positive outlook.
