Prison Ministry


Louisiana State Penitentiary

Prison Ministry

Sponsored by
The Baptist Association of Greater BR
and Louisiana Baptist Convention

Prison Ministry

La. State Penitentiary at Angola, Hunt Correctional Institute, and La. Correctional Institute for Women

Sponsored by The Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge

The Criminal Justice Ministry is still the largest mission effort of Discipleship Training.  BAGBR continues to led three, thirteen-week semesters at La. State Penitentiary at Angola, Elayn Hunt Correctional Facility (St. Gabriel) and La. Correctional Institute for Women (St. Gabriel). We maintained a semester average of 255 to 300 this year. The three ministries are greatly strengthening the Body-of-Christ, which is empowering the inmates to more effectively share the gospel with lost men and women in the various camps.

Please pray over the incredible expansion of this ministry in all the area prisons. The open doors call for at least 40 new people to be a part of this ministry this year.  God is opening doors faster than we have spiritual soldiers to invest.  The advancement will need new vision, soldiers and financing.  God is at work in Criminal Justice Reform.  We must join Him there. 

Angola Mission Target:        5000 + Men
Hunt Mission Target:          3000 + Men
LCIW Mission Target:          1200 + Women         

All 8,900 need to need to be saved and discipled to rebuild their lives and families.

Strategy:

Prayer:
Bring light into a dark place.

Grow the Body-of-Christ in prisons around LA:
Lost people see Jesus when the Body-of-Christ lives out of His love and truth.

Do Sequential Discipleship:
We still need men to facilitate these courses in the prison.  We place one free person with ten prisoners for each semester, so you can see how great our manpower needs are.  Do three, thirteen-week semesters per year.

After Care:   
To recruit churches and mentors for continued discipleship and training for the men and women who have been released.

What Can Your Church Do To Help?

PRAY  for inmates and ministry opportunities to witness and disciple each in our Louisiana prisons.

DISCIPLE  your men and women in the basic discipling units.

ENLIST trained men, women and churches to teach and mentor.  Call someone who has served at one of the prisons to give a personal testimony about the experience to your congregation and train in discipleship.

Enlistment Contact:
If you are interested in volunteering, please call the
Baptist Association of Greater Baton Rouge Office at 296-3943 and talk with Jan Terral.  The Department of Corrections requires a security check on all volunteers entering the prison system, so be prepared to give the following information:  name, social security number, date of birth and driverís license number.

Praise Report:
The La. Correctional Institute for Women at St. Gabriel has nine women being trained to lead out in reaching the inmate population through Master Life.

God is at work in our prisons!


At this very moment, start-up of the True Freedom Discipleship Program at LCIW is occurring and around thirty f

Please pray!  No servant-of-God can have much of an impact without strong prayer support.  Only Jesus can change the prison system and only Jesus can change the individual offender.
