KAIROS MISSION STATEMENT:
The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. is to bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to all incarcerated individuals, their families, and those who work with them, and to assist in the transition to becoming a productive citizen.
THE PURPOSE OF KAIROS:
The purpose of Kairos is to establish strong Christian communities among the population of correctional institutions, supporting fully the Restorative Justice Programme, Unit Management Programme, and other rehabilitation programmes in our institutions. This is done through the development of small share and prayer groups of inmates/residents in the institutions. These groups are to meet weekly to share their lives on a deep spiritual level and to pray with one another, for other residents and staff in the institutions.
Kairos is an interdenominational Christian ministry whose programmes were designed to be presented in Medium and Maximum Security sections of men’s and women’s correctional institutions, juvenile institutions, and to the outside families of prisoners. The ministry is conducted,in cooperation with the chaplains and management of correctional institutions, by volunteer teams of laity and clergy who are selected, trained and certified by area governing bodies of Kairos and approved by correctional institutions as citizen volunteers.
If you would like to be involved in this ministry, please contact John Iles, or the church office.
