The Prisoner’s Journey
The Prisoner’s Journey, is running in 508 prisons around the world. Through an eight-session study of the Book of Mark prisoners learn about Jesus the Prisoner and what He means for their lives. As prisoners transform at a heart-level, their chances of thriving outside of prison dramatically increase, impacting the individual, prison culture, and local communities. We currently are running the program in less than 1% of the 235 prisons in South Africa – that’s why we desperately call for new partners to help us. Your help can make a huge difference.
Prisoners are one of the least-reached groups in the world and we have a plan to reach them.
Prisoners around the world are cut off from society and left alone to cope with their feelings of hopelessness and despair.
The Prisoner’s Journey is proven to transform the lives of prisoners, from the inside out, by introducing them to restorative relationship with the person of Jesus.
It is delivered in three steps:
#1 The Invitation
Prisoners are invited to a promotional event in which they watch a powerful video introducing them to Jesus the Prisoner. They are then invited to attend the eight-session course of The Prisoner’s Journey.
#2 The Course
Throughout eight sessions, prisoners meet in groups of 10–12 to learn about who Jesus is, what He calls them to do, and what He wants for their lives.
#3 The Discipleship
Upon course completion, prisoners are invited to enroll in a discipleship course (Prison Project Phillip – PPP) to develop a deeper knowledge of the Bible, theological topics, and how to continue their journey with Jesus.
