What do we do at the prisons?

Bill Glass Ministry brings volunteers from across the country into prisons and youth detention centers. We will join volunteers from other churches and greet inmates as they enter/exit the special events. We'll have the opportunity to talk in small groups, pray, and share stories with men and women in prison.

Will I be safe inside the prison?

In the 45 years that Bill Glass Ministry has been visiting prisons, they have never experienced an incident that compromised the safety of one of their volunteers. We feel safe going to these events.

What can I wear inside the prison?

Comfortable, close-toed shoes

Casual, modest, and comfortable street clothes that are weather appropriate

Do NOT wear shirts with religious logos or inappropriate messages

Little or no jewelry

What am I required to take to the prison?

Required: Valid driver’s license or government-issued picture ID and a ballpoint pen

Optional: Car key/fob, medication (if absolutely necessary)

What about lunches when we're at the prison?

Most facilities provide a meal. As often as possible, we eat with the inmates. The inmates enjoy it, and it provides additional opportunities for witnessing. No outside food is allowed in the facilities, and leaving the facility during mealtimes is typically not allowed.
