Moving Into Prison Ministry: An Introduction to the Prison Industrial Complex

Moving Into Prison Ministry: An Introduction to the Prison Industrial Complex

Religious freedom for people living in systems of mass incarceration is protected by the 1st Amendment of the US Constitution. Yet exploring and practicing a wide breadth of spiritual and religious views can be challenging. Prisons are dominated by largely fundamentalist teachings and resources.

This conference will help people interested in prison ministry who offer alternative perspectives and can support the unmet religious and spiritual needs of those who are incarcerated. Prison ministry is an expansive term that can include such activities as becoming a pen pal, making regular in-person visits, hosting classes or worship services in prison, advocating, and more.

Learning about the realities of the prison industrial complex will help you engage in both prison ministry and justice work.

This event is hosted by the Worthy Now Prison Ministry Network (a program of the Church of the Larger Fellowship), in partnership with the Horizon UU Church
