All program participants must request to come to the chaplain dorm, and we will accept anyone (barring classification issues). All who come receive a copy of the rules and have the option of leaving at anytime. We use a detainee's overall participation in the program as a gauge for suitability in our transitional program.
PROGRAM GOALS: To provide a thoroughly Bible-centered program to demonstrate how faith touches every area of life; to show how sin and self in both thought and deed contributes to life's problems; to provide an atmosphere in which inmates can learn and apply these principles in microcosm; to provide spiritual counsel and prayer throughout their incarceration; to assist with the transition back into the "free world" whenever possible.
CLASS PARTICIPATION. All program participants are expected to be dressed and ready for class on time. We engage in roughly fourteen hours of instruction a week. Instruction time includes mostly expositional teaching from the Bible, as well as lessons on anger management, conflict resolution, racial interactions, drug and alcohol abuse, dealing with authority, ethics in the workplace, parenting and family matters, and the Christian worldview in general.
WORK. In addition to our class time, inmates must complete the following in a time-appropriate manner to remain in the program. The workload is below.
