Kairos Prison Ministry Weekend #4 April 19-22
Kairos Prison Ministry International (KPMI) is a ministry of the church … a ministry of the apostles whom Jesus Christ has called into community and sent forth into the environment of correctional institutions. KPMI has been called the best example of the early church in existence today. Kairos incorporates curriculum designed to build and encourage pro‐social character and behavior. Society spends over $60 billion/yr. to keep 2.3 million inmates incarcerated. The Kairos program, 100% funded by private donations, is offered at no cost to State and Federal Institutions. It’s best illustrated by an inmate’s witness, “It’s been said that it cost the government $1 million to keep me locked up and a $250 program from Kairos to set me free”. You can support this ministry by buying meal tickets, donations, making cookies, and prayers. See Barry Lynn or John Gibbs. Donations may be sent to Kairos (Luther in memo), PO Box 91281, Austin TX 78709-1281.
