Disciples entrust God’s principals for life to men and women who will receive biblical teaching with the goal of enabling others after they are equipped.
“and what you have heard from me before many witnesses entrust to faithful men who will be able to teach others also,” – 2 Timothy 2:2
WE ARE LOOKING FOR A FEW GOOD MEN AND WOMEN READY TO BE EQUIPPED AS DECIPLERS!!
Safer Communities Ministry staff and volunteers provide the following discipleship tools:
INCARCERATED – LIFE SKILLS
Real-world practical topics like character development, goal setting, anger/stress management, and improving marriage/family relationships are taught from a biblical perspective. In addition, all participating inmates always receive straight forward, practical teaching from the Word of God for breaking the bonds of addiction!
Life Skills Discipleship Topics also include basics like:
- Surrendering to the Lord for all areas of life
- Yielding control to the Lord in an unmanagable life area (addictive things)
- Trusting the Lord with daily practical needs (daily bread issues)
- Confessing and receiving forgiveness from God about things done wrong (sins)
- Giving forgiveness to those that hurt, frustrate, anger, disappoint you

CHANGED CHOICES (a non-profit organization that provides a range of support to female inmates) is partnering with Safer Communities Ministry. Changed Choices provides professional counseling in the jail, as well as a range of other services as After Care for ex-offenders transitioning back into the community.
Changed Choices continues to cultivate discipleship relationships with female inmates who demonstrate a high capacity for complete rehabilitation as they transition into society.
