Prison Churches

Your support of our prison churches, ministries and Leavell College (New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, NOBTS) at Hardee Correctional Institute help those incarcerated hear the good news of the Gospel and get closer to God.  The ministries provide hope, transformation and a sense of purpose.  

In December 40 inmates at Hardee Correctional Institute graduated with their Bachelor of Arts in Christian Ministry through NOBTS. 

Studies have shown several benefits to facilities that provide prison ministries and programs that help inmates know Christ’s love.  Some positive outcomes from prison ministries include:   lower rates of recidivism (returning to crime); reduced prison crime; increased safety; lower inmate depression.
Your generous giving helps to support these ministries, selected by The Island Chapel Outreach Committee:
