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.

Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (Kairos) is a Christian faith based ministry which addresses the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women, youth, and their families. By sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, Kairos hopes to change hearts, transform lives and impact the world. Kairos sprang from the Cursillo movement and is supported by volunteers from carious ecumenical communities.

The word Kairos is a Greek word meaning in God’s Special Time of in the Fullness of Time, indicating an opportunity for our participants and guest to re-consider their life choices – as hearts are changed, inmates begin to take responsibility for their actions – it’s like a front row seat at a miracle – transforming lives and impacting the world.

The weekend is conducted in an institution by a team of trained volunteers of the same gender as the institution. The Team begins on Thursday evening and ends with a spirit-filled closing on Sunday. It is only the “starting point” as the participants are guided through the steps of understanding the Christian life. Each day of the weekend has a guiding purpose or focus. The activities for each day are designed to support the day’s purpose. AS the day’s activities unfold, a building process is occurring. The participants are lead, step by step, through a growing understanding of the focus for that day, which is why Kairos is such a structured program. Every activity has a purpose that supports a higher purpose for the day, and every activity builds on prior activities. Everything has a place and an order.
