The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry, Inc. is to bring Christ's Love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families, and those who work with them, and to assist in the transition of becoming a productive citizen.


Psst... You don't have to come to the church to pray.

Pray for these folks in your own sanctuary as necessary.


Thank you and God bless!
