Meet just a few of the men and women serving the community of Savannah through this ministry!
My name is Matt Coleman, and I have been a Christian for over twenty years. My wife Jessica and I have been married for 8 years, and we have one daughter, Eleanor. Savannah, GA is my hometown. I’ve recently moved back from Texas where I attended seminary at Tyndale Theological Seminary and Biblical Institute to take the lead chaplain job here at CJMGA. I love my city and its people. I love my state and have never felt more at home than crossing the state line on our return trip.
God gives the increase and the decrease (1 Corinthians 3:6; Ephesians 2:8-9) and I am committed to preaching the Word in season and out and watching God reveal Himself to the men and women of the Chatham County Detention Center. I am privileged and blessed to be a part of that great work.
For His Glory,
After God saved me some twenty years ago in Jacksonville, Florida, He's given me a passion to serve Him. He also blessed me with a wife, my high school sweetheart, and five dear children. Along the way, I've had the blessed opportunity to serve Him in several ministries, and even earn degrees from the Master's College and Seminary. Even so, our desire has been to return to the South and see God's Word go forth into our unique culture. As such, I accepted the invitation to serve at Cornerstone Church of Savannah, through which I learned of this exciting opportunity. It is a privilege to serve inside the community of Savannah, where God transforms the lives of those residing both within and without bars.
For His Kingdom,
Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. As the Chaplain for the female population, I consider it a great joy to do the work God has called me to do. As I greet each and every one with the love of Jesus, I am reminded that I to am only a servant of the Most High God. I find myself blessed to be among these women inmates who remind me daily of just how great God is for I too met Jesus at the well and received the living water.
In His name,
Committed Christians have many opportunities to serve with us, those with a demonstrable ability in Scripture and the recommendation of their local church. To learn a little more visit our volunteers' page!
