CORRECTIONAL MINISTRIES INSTITUTE

 

For more than 35 years, the Institute for Prison Ministries, Wheaton College Billy Graham Center, has been on mission to improve and increase the knowledge and special skills of individuals who lead the incarcerated to repentance and faith in Jesus Christ, and who disciple professing Christians behind bars and following their release.  Correctional Ministries is an umbrella term that better describes who we serve – Christians serving in youth detention, jail, prison, reentry and reintegration, families and children of the incarcerated, corrections staff, and victims.  While our name has changed, our mission is the same.
