Whenever we meet someone that has interest in supporting Serving Time, we typically share the ministry card below. Review this page and select one or more areas today to get involved in this ministry.
PRAY. We seek Christ daily as the cornerstone of this ministry. Please pray for the souls of those men and women we serve, for more volunteers to join us - particularly in the Richmond County Jail, and for the leadership of this ministry.
Please Take A Moment To Complete
DONATE. Each jail / prison we visit maintains a library for resident use. In support of their spiritual growth, WE WANT THEM TO HAVE ACCESS TO CHRISTIAN MATERIALS. Christian paperback reference books, discipleship guides, biographies, counseling and relationship materials, and even fictional books are welcome.
Learn more about our Book Ministry and how to donate.
GIVE. The administration and operational costs of this organization are primarily supported by its board and volunteers. Our greatest monetary need is for Bibles and other items (glasses, training materials, etc.) given to the ones we serve. 98% of all donations received are used to provide these items with 2% going towards administration costs such as web hosting, postage, and printing. During a given year the ministry will place 2700+ Bibles in the hands of the men and women we meet in the jails we visit. Due to facility requirements, only certain Bibles are permitted. Please consider making a financial gift for directly purchasing Bibles or supporting other ministry needs and special programs.
SERVE. Would you consider joining us by leading a 1-hour Bible Study within a jail or helping a returning citizen get connected within your church? When is the last time you shared the Gospel? We are not looking for Bible scholars, just men and women with the compassion to tell others about Jesus Christ with consistency and commitment, showing that you truly care. Serve one hour a month sharing the Gospel, teaching a Sunday School lesson, or giving your testimony. (Jesus -- The Ultimate Volunteer)
The process for visiting in a facility requires an orientation session and a personal background check. Once cleared, folks will often team up with another Serving Time volunteer for a couple of visits until they feel comfortable to proceed on their own. Classes typically take place within the cell area pod, and are attended by 6-12 residents that are indeed hungry to hear the Word of God.
