Prison Fellowship Ministries

Prison Fellowship Ministries is a not-for-profit, volunteer-based organization with one mission: exhort, equip, and assist the Church in its ministry to prisoners, ex-prisoners, victims, and their families, and to promote biblical standards of justice in the criminal justice system.

To accomplish this mission, Prison Fellowship recruits, trains, and mobilizes volunteers from a wide variety of backgrounds and denominations to participate in a broad array of in-prison and community ministries.

Prison Fellowship was founded in 1976 by Charles W. Colson, former Special Counsel to President Richard Nixon. After serving time in prison for a Watergate-related offense, Colson became convinced of the need for a ministry devoted to sharing the Good News of Christ with men and women in prison. Prison Fellowship was founded shortly after Colson's release with proceeds from his best-selling autobiography Born Again.
