Jail/Prison Ministry

President: Thelma Moss

Galilee's Prison & Jail Ministry is concerned with sharing the love, the hope and the life-changing message of Jesus Christ to those behind bars. Our Ministry serves Mondays and Thursdays at The Kalamazoo County Jail. The Ministry also extends to The Juvenile Home on Gull Road. The GBC Jail & Prison Ministry seeks to minister to people in need of hope and the transforming power of Jesus Christ through personal testimony and examples of Christ like living. GBC’s Jail & Prison Ministry is a team of men and women gathered by God for the purpose of sharing the gospel message of Jesus Christ to incarcerated men, women & children. Jesus’ words in Matthew 25:36 give us the basis for this ministry, “…I was in prison and you visited me…” We are called to share His love, hope and life-changing message to those behind bars and those who have been recently released from the detention system. We are called by Jesus to minister to the poor, the weak, the strangers, and the incarcerated, “to the least of these.” While it may not be easy to go into a detention facility, He nevertheless challenges modern day disciples be His hands, feet, eyes, ears and body. We are called to be witnesses of God’s love and compassion for the world. Contact the church office to get involved.
