GREATER GLORY PRISON MINISTRY
HUTCHINS STATE JAIL
| More than 10 million prisoners worldwide are locked away and forgotten.
Cut off from society, they reside in a culture that does not rehabilitate and is often based on the threat of violence. To survive, they learn to protect themselves through the same means that got them into prison, perpetuating a culture of violence and retaliation. So it’s not surprising that 75% of these men and women will reoffend within 5 years of their release—and the cycle continues.
And prisoners aren’t the only ones affected by their crimes.
Victims of crime are largely ignored, often suffering in silence. Among them are the more than 14 million children around the world, who have lost one or both parents to prison. These children are among the world’s most forgotten and destitute populations. Many are hidden from society, living in remote, hard-to-reach communities and experiencing extreme poverty. Much worse off than impoverished children whose parents aren’t in prison, they are in danger of slavery, sex-trafficking, and violence.
| One in five children will repeat the cycle of crime—unless someone intervenes.
Greater Glory is partnering with volunteers and local churches in prisons around the world that are restoring prisoners’ lives, helping their families, and successfully integrating them back into community.
The approach is simple and it starts with people just like you that care and desire change. We simply share the Love of God, preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ to every prisoner, and transformation begins. We serve these prisoners, give them hope through Christ, and believe that every seed we plant in their lives will produce a great harvest for all eternity.
