Help stop the vicious cycle of
Freedom in Jesus Prison Ministries is here to convert, disciple and shepherd prisoners while incarcerated and former offenders after release.
By helping offenders make the "most important decision" of receiving Christ and staying out of prison and leading a constructive life, we are making our communities safer and fulfilling the mission of "setting the captives free" in a way that makes a real difference.
“After my release, I felt paralyzed and unprepared to face a life outside of prison.”
I thought about what disappointment I had brought to others and to myself. I had been a banker for nine years with prestige, luxurious living, all the niceties of life – now look where I was.
I went from making six-figures, no debt and having a wonderful family to losing everything and living in a tent on a wooded hillside in South Nashville for 1 ½ years.
I went to prison when I was 21. That was where I was introduced to "prison gangs." I joined the "family" and started selling drugs. After awhile, I wanted out. I was physically beaten, threatened, my family was threatened, robbed, and many other things.
