The Prison Journey to the Heart is a volunteer-based program that desires to minister the life of Christ to broken and hurting men and women who are incarcerated. The Prison Journey to the Heart was started in direct answer to the prayers of someone who asked the Lord to open up the doors for a Journey to the Heart (a program which had traditionally only been done in the free world) to be done in the prisons in their State.
Through a series of miraculous circumstances, the Lord supernaturally opened the necessary doors for the first ever Prison Journey to the Heart to happen in 2012. This week-long event in which volunteers are with the inmates for almost the entire day (at times even including eating lunch with the inmates in the chow hall) has been held in prisons each spring and fall since that first ground breaking Journey in 2012.
The Prison Journey volunteers come from all over the country and go into as many as 6 prisons at a time often reaching well over 300 inmates with the life-changing truths of God’s Word. In John 8:31-32: we read: “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” Praise the Lord for the power of His Word to set these inmates free on the inside from the bondage of sin and self. We are so grateful for each volunteer that the Lord brings as an earthen vessel to share the powerful, living Word of God with the inmates. Many volunteers have testified that, even though they come to minister to the inmates, the Lord impacts them and works in their life in a powerful way as well.
Sponsor a Volunteer
Having volunteers makes the biggest difference in the world because the inmates can see normal, faulty people, who are filled with the love of God, and it impacts them hugely!

A Journey workbook contains all the material that the inmates and volunteers go through during the week. Many inmates take them back to their bunks and read them again and again.
Sponsor an Inmate
They’re one of the most grateful groups of people we’ve ever ministered to. Many can’t believe that people would voluntarily spend so much time in a prison just to show the love of God.
