From The President's Desk
Dawn and I had a quiet Thanksgiving dinner at home with our son, Jimmy. Just what the doctor ordered. We visited family members later in the day, and greatly enjoyed their company. We needed a peaceful day, and the Lord was gracious to give us one. I hope your day was as blessed as ours.
One of the things I am very excited about - CFM will host a Coalition of Prison Evangelists (COPE) Conference Wednesday-Saturday, August 24th-27th, 2016. It will be held at Country Lake Retreat Center in Underwood, just north of Henryville, Indiana.
We are trying to find as many prison ministers and ministries as we can, especially those located in the Midwest. We want to get to know them, invite them to the conference, and find out what we can do to help them carry out their mission.
If you know of anyone involved in any aspect of ministry to inmates and their families, would you please email me at email@example.com with their contact information? This includes professionals (especially Christians) employed in any aspect of the criminal justice system.
I'll have more information about the conference as we get closer to the time. In the meantime, thank you for your friendship and support.
Born to Lose? Or Born to Live? You Can Decide.
Are you, or someone you know, caught in a vicious cycle of substance abuse, crime, and incarceration? Are you tired of going back to prison or jail, or watching someone you love keep going back?
Bad News - 65% of prison inmates, and 80% of jail inmates, will return to custody within three years of their release - unless something changes. For most people, our incarceration system is a revolving door.
Good News - you can break the chains that keep you a slave, and become one of the freest people on the planet! With God's help, you can get off the merry-go-round, stop settling for less, and begin to live the live you were born for!
Christian Formation Ministries offers, free of charge, a faith-based approach to help people help themselves to get free and stay free. We also offer help to the immediate family members of the person in trouble - especially their children. The child of an inmate has a 70% chance of becoming one, too.
For help, email, call, or write to us. Today can be the first day of your whole new life!
Christian Formation Ministries is a member in good standing of the Coalition of Prison Evangelists (COPE), an international fellowship of individuals and organizations engaged in all aspects of ministry within the criminal justice system. Our President and CEO, Rev. Richard Johnson, serves on the COPE Board of Directors.
