Kairos Prison Ministry



Kairos Prison Ministry

So what is Kairos?  The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities. This ministry seeks to fulfill the command the Lord gave in Matthew 25:36 "I was in prison and you visited me".

In Houston, the Kairos team is focused on providing a weekend spiritual retreat,  at Carol Vance Prison Unit Chapel (in Richmond Texas), three times per year. If you would like to see a video about the result of the ministry Kairos check out this one  or why you or someone would like to participate:
