Program Details

As student-inmates the men invest 2-6 hours a week in cell-to-cell evangelism as well as Bible teaching. Upon graduation they are assigned to prisons across the state of South Carolina, where they become missionaries and ministers in the various facilities.

Our students take a unique blend of Bible, theology, ministry, and general academic courses to prepare them for ministry both inside and outside of prison.
