We believe God has called the Church to care for people who are incarcerated (Hebrews 13:3). That is why, since 1984, Crossroads Prison Ministries has been equipping men and women in churches across the country to serve as mentors to people in jails and prisons as they study God’s Word together.

As a Crossroads mentor, you will:

  • Review students’ Bible study lessons and offer encouraging comments
  • Write uplifting and hope-filled letters to your students
  • Pray for your students

You don’t need to be a Bible expert to be a Crossroads mentor. Crossroads provides mentors with training, materials, and ongoing support. Most mentors spend about an hour or two each week reviewing lessons. These lessons cover a variety of biblical topics. Click here to view sample lessons from each course we offer.

Our mentors love that they can share the Gospel and the hope of Jesus Christ with many people who are living in prison without leaving their homes. Our program is mail-based, and each lesson you are assigned to review will be mailed directly to you. To learn more about how our ministry works, check out the journey of a Crossroads lesson.

We look forward to helping you share the love and hope of Jesus Christ with men and women who are incarcerated.
