/ -- Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (Kairos), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, announces the start of a Kairos Inside Program at Lake Butler Reception and Medical Center beginning Thursday March 15th in Lake Butler, FL. The Weekend event will be the first Kairos Inside Weekend at this facility and is another step forward in helping inmates transform their lives.
Kairos Inside is a ministry program whose mission is to develop a Christian community inside the prison. The result is an improvement in the prison living environment, reduced recidivism after leaving prison, safer communities, and healed families based on personal transformations. Up to 42 inmates participate in a 3.5 day Weekend program based on a series of talks, discussions, prayer, and chapel meditations with the aim of creating or continuing a desire for spiritual growth. The Weekend will be followed up with Continuing Ministry of monthly Reunions and weekly Prayer and Share groups which provides an authentic and vital Christian community for accountability and encouragement.
Kairos is also in need of volunteers for future Weekends. Opportunities may include cookie baking, artwork, prayer, team support, and participating in a team. To volunteer, please visit www.kairosprisonministry.org/volunteer
