Our prison program intends to introduce prisoners to life-changing biblical principles, thereby helping them turn their broken road into a solid pathway of personal success.
The goal: Bring Jesus and His Word to prison, restore and provide eternal hope with the knowledge that freedom is found through a relationship with Christ.
In 2014, we launched our first Prison Campus in the Homestead Correctional Institution (HCI) for women. Later that year, we launched our second campus at the Dade Correctional Institute (Dade CI) for men. With the help of God Behind Bars and the cooperation of the Florida Department of Corrections, CBG now hosts weekly services at both campuses and small group studies at HCI.
Friends and family of inmates are also able to watch the same service, at the same time, by visiting GodBehindBars.com. This provides these families the opportunity to have common ground to talk about in letters, phone calls, and visits.
Serving in our prison campuses is one of the most incredible volunteer experiences at Church by the Glades. If you’re interested, please sign up below, and we'll share how you can be a part of all God is doing at our prison campuses.
