/ -- Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. ("Kairos"), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is inviting inmates at Hilltop Unit Prison for women to attend the #1 Kairos Inside Weekend to be held March 8th -- 11th in Gatesville, TX. Kairos has a very active presence in Texas and is pleased to be able to now serve this unit.
Kairos Inside is a ministry program whose mission is to develop a Christian community inside the prison. Up to 42 inmates will participate in a 3.5 day program based on a series of talks, discussions, prayer, and chapel meditations with the aim of creating or continuing a desire for spiritual growth. The result is an improvement in the prison living environment, reduced recidivism after leaving prisons, safer communities, and healed families based on personal transformations. The Weekend will be followed up with Continuing Ministry of Reunions and Prayer and Share groups which provides an authentic and vital Christian community for accountability and encouragement. Texas locations and information can be found on www.kairostexas.org
Kairos is also in need of volunteers to support the #1 Weekend and for future Weekend team members. Opportunities include cookie baking, artwork, prayer, team support, and participating in a team. To volunteer, please visit www.kairosprisonministry.org/volunteer-opportunities.php
