We believe we are called to share with inmates God's Amazing Grace, so they may know and experience His peace and forgiveness that can only come through a personal relationship with His Son, Jesus Christ.
Voice of the Overcomer's Prison and Jail Ministry is a Christian ministry that is called to work throughout the United Stand and internationally to bring change, meaning and hope to the inmates of today and tomorrow. We are actively involved in bringing restoration between inmates and God, their families and their communities. (Matt. 25)
The ministry is not only involved in evangelistic efforts, going into prisons and jails to visit inmates and lead them to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ, but also to develop an ongoing mentoring relationship with these inmates. Ongoing discipleship is established both with the inmate while they are incarcerated and once they are released. This "after prison" endeavor relates to housing, employment, spiritual foundation and accountability. We have a local congregation here in Bend, Oregon that offers former inmates a place to worship and study God's Word in a loving and accepting environment on a weekly basis. A place with accountability but without judgement. (Please contact us for more information about time and location.)
It is our desire to see inmates return to society as productive, law abiding members who now see purpose and direction in their lives through Jesus Christ.
We believe in networking with other like minded ministries and sharing resources whenever feasible to facilitate reaching as many inmates and their families as possible. Therefore we have been privileged to network with other local and national prison and jail ministries such as Chuck Colson's Prison Fellowship, Bill Glass Prison Ministries, the Oregon Department of Correction's Home for Good Program, The Christian Motorcycle Association, The Freedom Team, Teen Challenge and Broken Shackles Ministry, just to name a few.
