Did you know that 2 out of 3 offenders will reoffend within their first 3 years of being released? Our ministry is made up of a coalition of churches and ministries coming together for the great commission. (Matthew 28:19)
I would like to personally invite you and your congregation to come learn more about us and our mission at our Annual Kingdom Rally on Saturday, August 30, 2014 at the Greenville Municipal Auditorium. It will be a night of family fun, raflles, vendor giveaways and live music entertainment. Will you pray about partnering with us to help these men and women become productive men and women of society? I would love to see a representative from each Hunt County church be there to learn how we can join forces to build a better community for those who society has casted away?
All proceeds will benefit D4C’s “Beating The Odd’s Campaign” to breaking the cycle of incarceration in offenders, former offenders, and the impact incarceration has on offenders children and loved ones. Help offenders experience a message of hope by buying a $10 ticket, $1 raffle ticket for a mini ipad and more! You can be a strong effect in transforming prison culture from the inside, but also the urban areas where offenders will return after they are released.
$10 at the door and half price for children.
About Disciples 4 Christ
Our goal is to transform the offenders into Christian spiritual leaders who will not only help transform prison culture from the inside, but also the urban areas where offenders will return after they are released.
“The bigger challenge is bridging the ministry program back into the community and ﬁnding churches that will receive them and then take it to the next level,” Susan Neyra said. “We are pretty good at locking people up and keeping them there. We are not as good at welcoming them back to the community and supporting them in a way that keeps them from returning.”
“Prison culture is such that men are taught to isolate,” Rob Waldron (D4C Board Member) said. “That is the way they survive in a brutal and repressive environment. The ministry programs that we offer cuts completely against the grain of that culture to create an environment where men and women are willing to be honest with each other about their deepest struggles and needs.”
