Who we are

The Institute for Prison Ministries (IPM), a department of Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College, began as a result of the vision of Charles Colson and Kenneth Wessner. In 1984, through the generosity of Kenneth and Norma Wessner and a longtime business partner, the Institute for Prison Ministries was established. The Charles W. Colson Scholarship for formerly incarcerated individuals to attend Wheaton College was added in 1986.
