STATE OF TEXAS
The BCCC Prison Ministry is an amazing opportunity to see many souls come to Yahweh and others renew their relationship in a powerful way. This ministry takes groups of 20 plus individuals into Texas prisons for evangelism. The group goes in on Saturday and Sunday from 7 am to 6 pm each day. We minister in music, testimonies, the preached word, singing, dancing, and comedy opportunities for prayer and two-by-two sharing in a supervised environment although none are allowed to leave the prison once admitted for the day. Guards are present at all times and by following the directives of the prison it is a safe environment to evangelize in.
All About BCCC Prison Ministry
We serve nachos, kool-aid and cookies to the inmates. Individuals are encouraged to bring their musical instruments or accompaniment cds. If you have a skit or a talent that will be conducive within the confines of the prisons it will be welcomed. The volunteers come from all walks of life. Some are ex-offenders, some with children incarcerated, other have experienced abuse and very traumatic situations. The volunteers range in age from 18 to grandparents. This ministry do not share religion only the gospel. In other words denomination will not be an issue.
The first time on outreach one can go as a special volunteer but after that you must submit an application with the Texas Department of Correction for a half a day training. This ministry only cost travel to and from the prison and hotel room for the two nights. Two -four persons can stay in a room so it is cost effective. You can usually hitch a ride with the church van or if someone in your area or church group
