Prison Ministry

About Prayer Ministry

Those who find themselves behind the prison bars are bound up with much more than physical restraints. Their lives have been shattered, nevertheless, they can be rejuvenated by the love of Christ. Jesus understands this and urges Christians to visit those in prison.

United African Seventh-day Adventist Church takes this assignment seriously. This church has a lively prison ministry that has a structure which allows members to visit and share the word of Christ to the brothers and sisters in prison. It has been an on-going activity since the inception of the church. The ministry covers over six prison units including one female unit in Dickinson, Texas. This ministry is rewarding in the sense that there is a value the recipients place in every spoken word.

The Prison Ministry of United African Seventh-day Adventist Church has been in service for greater than twenty years. It has witnessed acceptance into many of the correctional facilities in the Texas Department of Correctional Institutions in the Houston Area.

Yes, this team of joyous servants aims to lead and help the inmates they minister to, to catch a glimpse of the risen Lord of glory, and to commit to a life of service to others as well - just like Paul, and to "walk in Jerusalem, just like John."

We trust that the Lord of glory will look upon each member and say: "Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: Enter thou into the joy of thy Lord." For "I was in prison and you visited Me..." (Matthew 25:21,36)
