Next Inside Weekend: April 4-7, 2024

Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc (Kairos) is a lay-led, interdenominational Christian ministry in which men and women volunteers bring Christ's love and forgiveness to prisoners and their families. By sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, Kairos hopes to change hearts, transform lives and impact the world. The Kairos programs take the participants on a journey that demonstrates the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. The programs involve a structured model that includes the Weekend experience, followed by guests or participants gathering regularly for accountability, support, and prayer.

There are several ways you may participate and support this Kairos ministry

Participate by Volunteering

The RCI #22 (Roxbury Correctional Institute in Hagerstown, MD Inside weekend #22) training will begin on February 10. We need volunteers for both inside and support team. If you are interested in being a part of this team, please contact John Porter.

Participate by Praying. . .Our Greatest Need

Kairos is a worldwide ministry that brings the love of God and the light of Christ into prisons. Many volunteers rally to become the hands and feet of Christ for a group of inmates who come seeking a new way of life. The Team's purposes will be to plant seeds for God, show His unconditional love and grace, and grow the Christian community already established inside the prison walls.  We need your prayers for the success of the mission.  

Please pray for:
  • 42 residents for the Weekend
  • The Warden and Staff
  • The Chaplain
  • Support Team
  • Our Host Church
  • That the Will of God be Accomplished

We are seeking 24 hour prayer coverage.  Please sign up for half hour time slots Online.
