DECISIONS FOR CHRIST
We are committed to loving people until they ask us, "Why?"
It's at that very point that we are truly able to point them to Christ.
We believe in sharing the restorative power of Jesus.
We are committed to transforming the very culture of the jail through our presence.
We believe that God can use us in transforming lives through our availability and unconditional love.
