Kairos Prison Ministry at Hightower Unit in Dayton, TX
The righteous will say "When, Lord, did we ever see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you a drink? When did we ever see a stranger and welcome you in our homes, or naked and clothe you? When did we ever see you sick or in prison, and visit you? The King will reply,
"I tell you, whenever you did this for the least of these brothers of mine, you did it for Me."
What is Kairos Prison Ministry?
Kairos Prison Ministry is a Christian, volunteer lay-led, ecumenical Prison Ministry. A team of 35-40 volunteers share the love, grace, mercy and forgiveness of Jesus Christ with those incarcerated. We share meals, prayer and fellowship with 42 offenders over a 3 ½ day weekend. Lives are changed so that many of the offender participants return to free-world society as law-abiding, productive citizens.
