The epidemic of incarceration has reached an all time high, especially for people of color. According to Americanprogress.org, while people of color make up 30% of the United States population, they account for 60 percent of those imprisoned. The report says that the prison population grew by 700 percent from 1970 to 2005, a rate that is outpacing crime and population rates.
How we have or have not responded to the issue of incarceration will be the focus of this National Prison Summit on Incarceration. The bible commands us to pray for people in prison as though we were in prison with them. We are required to minister to the least and the lost. Ministry is about empowering others with the Word of God and sending forth people to make a difference. Join the leading experts who will offer connections and strategies on how your church, ministry, organization or family can make a difference in the lives of those who are living behind bars.
Our mission is simple, to teach you what we know is effective and that is relevant and transformative. We are gathering to give you the tools and techniques necessary for progress on your journey to impacting lives!
