Kairos – November 2015

kairos logoKairos Inside Prison Ministry is a lay-led Christian ministry which conducts a highly-structured program for use in the medium-to-maximum security correctional institutions. Our mission is simple: Share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, to become loving productive citizens.

The typical Kairos Inside experience is a 3 ½- Day event which allows Participants to witness Christ’s love through the servitude of Christian Kairos volunteers. For a typical event, 42 “Men-in-White” are greeted, served, fellowshipped with and shown the unconditional love of our Savior over the entire event. The motto of “listen, listen, love, love” is demonstrated and carried out by the Kairos volunteers.

While much of the focus is on the 3 ½- day event, the real heart of Kairos are the Prayer & Share opportunities. Each week following the 3 ½- day event, participants are encouraged to come together and establish strong Christian communities within their institution to continue their spiritual formation. This commitment by the Kairos community helps create a lasting bond between those that are incarcerated and the volunteers that serve.

Kairos #34 will take place at the John T. Montford Unit, November 12-15 in Slaton, TX. Remaining team meetings are scheduled for September 19th, October 3rd, October 24th and November 6th with each one beginning at 8:15 AM at Aldersgate UMC located at 3417-96th St. in Lubbock, TX.
