Seeking out and discipling those impacted by incarceration.
We seek to build relationships and impact people during and after their incarceration. Working through our members and partners, we provide a variety of ministries for the incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, and their families to demonstrate God’s love for them.
An Introduction to Prison Ministry
Incarceration, Restoration, and the Church
Discover a biblical view of incarceration, the impact incarceration has on men, women, and their families while they are in prison, and the societal challenges they face after they have re-entered back into society.
To address the entire cycle of incarceration, we work through partners share the gospel with those currently incarcerated, help the formerly incarcerated re-enter society, and develop relationships with families impacted by incarceration. We offer a variety of different Watermark ministries in local prisons, including re:generation.
Noteworthy encourages incarcerated men and women by pairing them with “pen pals.” Volunteers are trained and have the chance to impact and disciple individuals via letters and cards throughout the year.
Men of Nehemiah is a discipleship program that provides homeless and formerly incarcerated men with residential accommodations, discipleship, recovery support, an array of support services, and more.
Restart 133, in partnership with Prison Fellowship, is a biblically based program in Lew Sterrett County Jail where men and women get to be discipled and invested in that sets them up for positivity re-entry by investing in their spiritual and overall well-being.
re:generation for Prisons is Watermark’s 12-step, Christ-centered, biblical recovery program that is being facilitated in the Sanders Estes Unit.
Prison Fellowship works with men, women, and families who are affected by incarceration. Their mission includes working towards making prisons safer and more rehabilitative, advancing criminal justice reforms, and helping those affected by crime to heal and flourish in their communities and families.
