PORTLAND, Ore., Feb. 10, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- February 10, 2016. The Publishing Division of Open Door Communication Ministries, Inc. and its Strong Man Ministries unit announces the "Books To USA Prisons Project" that will send two copies of "The Strong Man Of God: Back To Basics" to over 800 Federal and State prison libraries to reach men with the Gospel and teach biblical manhood. To that end, a forty-five day Crowdfunding Campaign was launched on February 1st at www.weraise.wheatridge.org to raise the $9,000 needed to fund the project. The Ministry is inviting Christians across the nation in particular to get behind the fundraising effort.
The "Books to USA Prisons Project" is intended to make sure incarcerated men are not left out of what the Ministry believes is God's strategic call for men to come to faith in Jesus Christ and begin the journey of becoming strong men of God in His image. The national project came into being after having the book be received and used by inmates in Oregon and Washington prisons. Feedback from many of those men has been positive. The book and project are part of the variety of ways the Ministry is reaching out to men including in the prisons.
There are more than 2.4 million men and women incarcerated in prisons and jails in the United States--the largest number of incarcerated in the world! Ninety percent of those incarcerated are men with black men being six times the number that are white. Being conducted during Black History Month especially and in light of all of the recent problems black males are having with the police, the Crowdfunding Campaign to raise funds for the "Books to USA Prisons Project" along with all of the other outreach activity of the Ministry is timely.
