Bringing Church Inside Prison Walls

Prison Ministry at Connect is unique in that we have planted the local church inside the walls of correctional facilities. We take the same Connect Church Sunday Service and Groups experience you would find at our campus inside the Riverbend Maximum Security Prison to lead men and women into a growing relationship with Christ. Additionally, we are partnering with the Take One Program led by the Tennessee Department of Correction. Take One allows Connectors the opportunity to help inmates find their way to a new, productive, and crime-free way of life reunited with their families, friends and their communities.

Get Involved

If you are ready to join the Prison Ministry team, complete the Next Steps and attend Training Day. During Training Day, you will receive mandatory training required by the TDOC as well as have the opportunity to ask questions about each facility and determine where you want to serve.
