Morris County Jail Ministries
Welcome to the jail ministry at the Morris County Correctional Facility in Morristown, NJ. Our purpose as a church is to bring a biblical gospel to incarcerated men and women in Northern NJ. Statistics show that 2.3 million people in the U.S. are incarcerated, and two out of three inmates will re-enter the jail/prison system as repeat offenders.
In witnessing the gospel to the women's unit, there is a one-hour Bible study every Tuesday afternoon. Those who attend are encouraged to look to the Pearl of Great Price, the Lord Jesus Christ. Many of the women come from broken or foster care homes, and sexually or physically abusive homes. Most of the women are enslaved to drugs and alcohol, and depression is common among them. Our prayer and hope is that the light of the gospel would penetrate the darkness and bondage to sin in these women's lives and transform them into bondservants of the Lord Jesus Christ. Much wisdom and prayer is needed in engaging each woman that comes into the Bible study.
