Our Mission

Forsyth Jail & Prison Ministries uses Christ’s love and forgiveness to transform lives and break the cycle of crime and punishment.

Our Purpose

Through Christ’s love and compassion, we are taught not to condemn, but to love. It is not only our civic duty to serve, but our calling as Christians to help imprisoned men and women find Jesus Christ through study, through counseling, through worship and through actions.

Founded in 1977, the Forsyth Jail and Prison Ministry has helped thousands of incarcerated men and women discover the true meaning of Christianity, and what it means to live as a Christian. Only through the help of hundreds of volunteers does this program work.

Our Core Values

We are committed to:

  1. Always doing what is right (I Peter 3:17)
  2. Authentic relationships and teamwork (Ecclesiastes 4:9-10)
  3. Attention to quality and detail in all we do (Colossians 3:23)
  4. Honoring human dignity (Matthew 25:35-36)
  5. Glorifying God in all we do (I Corinthians 10:31)

Our Ministry

Through the leadership of our ministerial staff and our broad volunteer base, the ministry offers a variety of programs, including Bible Studies, Worship Services, Mentoring, Literacy, Music, and more.
