Sharon and I felt God calling us to some kind of ministry back in 1998. Sometime later we were asked to come and run the Prison Ministry in Kenora for Northern Youth Programs.
Over the years I have discovered I have a real passion for working with men locked behind bars. Sharon also enjoys her work with the ladies, especially as she listens to their stories.
We both do Bible studies and provide one-on-one counselling for the inmates in the Kenora Jail. There are a variety of Bible courses we offer to the residents of the jail, including a course dealing with addictions. There is also a grief course inmates can do to help them cope with death or loss of a family member to suicide. It is a blessing to bring Jesus to the hurt and pain of people in prison.
