Chris Hoke, jail chaplain and author of the book Wanted, recently came to Crossroads Prison Ministries with his friend Neaner Garcia. Chris and Neaners exchanged letters for years while Neaners was in solitary confinement. They are now co-directors of Underground Ministries in Washington. While visiting Crossroads, they recorded training videos for Crossroads volunteer mentors that will be released in 2018.
They also gave a talk during Crossroads Chapel. Neaners and Chris shared their story of how a Mexican gang member and a self-described “dorky, white church guy” developed a friendship through the mail and how it changed both of them.
