Again, welcome to all!  Thank you for sharing your various techniques.  My question is this, how do you incorporate your program into teachings at a detention center where the stay is short until transfer to another facility or released? 

I love the post-released mentoring that was mentioned!

The videos on the site are breathtaking. We have found that effective fathering is an attraction in the prison that many men respond to. Most of them had deficient or no father role models, and have no idea on how to be the dad their kids need. Malachi Dads jumps off from this concern. In Chester County, PA, we use the Inside Out Dads curriculum from the National Fatherhood Initiative. http://www.fatherhood.org/

Thank you for sharing.  This seems like a very good program, especially since it is connected to the AWANA program which we have in our church.

We are adapting the Malachi Dads model to the county jail, by adding post-release mentoring. http://awanalifeline.org/#/media/videos-photos

Assuming that all of you are in prison ministry, how do you share the Gospel with inmates?  The group I'm with will be exploring the wheel technique by the Navigator's.

How do you know that he is innocent?

how do you talk to a prisoner who is innocent and you know he is innocent

These are just some thoughts to ponder and to discuss.

 

 Can I be trusted to bring His Word to inmates?

Am I studying to show myself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth?” 2 Timothy 2:15

Am I promoting myself or am I promoting Jesus Christ?

Am I faithful to my ministry? (There are so many things that I can be involved in.)

Am I practicing 1 Corinthians 13 in my ministry?

Is my lifestyle matching up with what I teach in the jail?

Do I dress modestly?

When a team mate is teaching, do I try to limit my comments to an appropriate pause? Do I try to take over the lesson of the one who is teaching thinking that I can do better?

If I am in disagreement with my ministering partner’s viewpoint, do I voice my concern in the unit or do I pray?

Am I in tune to the leading of the Holy Spirit?

Am I intimidated by another’s teaching style? Or am I comfortable with what God has given to me?

Just by visiting family in jail can be the beginning of jail ministry.  You just don't know whose life you will touch just by being available as a Christian witness.  It is hard visiting a family member who is an inmate, but can we be trusted by God to bring them His Word?  "Preach the word, be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great patience and instruction." (2 Timothy 4:2)
