Prison Ministries

God of Hope

Take the life-changing reality of Jesus to inmates

Through the ministry of God of Hope, men and women are coming out of prison with a new hope and a newfound relationship with God that guides them to a healthier lifestyle and less likelihood of returning to prison. 94% of the graduates of our program go on to never commit offenses again. Our teaching and discipleship take place in our faith-based dorms and are located at the Lockhart Female Unit, the Travis Male Unit as well as the Gatesville Male Unit. Inmates who have shown an interest in and been accepted into the God of Hope program live in the ministry’s faith-based dorms for 24 hours a day until completion of the 6 month curriculum.  Inside the dorms, volunteers teach and disciple inmates through classes that teach them the Bible, spiritual habits and life skills. Through pen-pal volunteers, the inmates receive encouragement and support during their 6 month program.

The ministry offers the following opportunities to serve:

Dorm Teacher:  Weekly teach inmates the study of selected materials which meet the guidelines of TDCJ and are endorsed by The God of Hope Ministries program leaders.

  1. Discipleship Group Leader: meet weekly in group setting to foster accountability, tolerance, confidentiality, listening, sharing, and acceptance.
  2. Life-coach:  meet weekly to walk through life with an offender discliping them in the Bible and praying for the offender’s concerns as well as helping the offender prepare for their release.
  3. Pen-pal:  Volunteers are assigned an inmate and write letters weekly that serve to be a source of hope and encouragement during the duration of the 6 month program. 
  4. Apprentices or substitutes assist a regular volunteer, learning from the more experienced volunteer until they’re ready to move into a regular volunteer position themselves. This is a good starting point for people making their initial venture into prison ministry or for those who cannot make a long-term weekly commitment.
  5. Ministry Support: office assistant, volunteer recruiting, graphic design, newsletter writing, special event planning and fundraising.

If you’d like to visit the prison a few times to see if you feel prison ministry is a fit for you, please call our office at (512) 891-1649 or email us at [email protected].

Minister to Prisoners & Their Families

Changing Hearts; Transforming Lives; Impacting the World

Kairos Inside & Kairos Outside

The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.

Kairos Inside is composed of trained volunteers who present a weekend program designed to minister to a select group of inmates. Through talks, conversations, chapel visits, music, prayer and more, often a Christian community begins to form. After the weekend, weekly accountability groups and monthly reunions are held.

Kairos Outside is a weekend retreat designed to support the female loved ones of those who are or have been incarcerated. The goal of Kairos Outside is to help them find strength for their life journey and give them a chance to find and build relationships that may last a lifetime.

Both types of weekends are offered twice a year per unit, with five team-building meetings scheduled prior to each event.

Needs and commitments vary and may include becoming a team member, prayer partner, or outside support such as letter writing or providing children’s artwork.

For information about serving contact Hill Country Bible Church ministry leaders Ed or Bettye Keefer
