We see a world where inmates are viewed as people and are encouraged to integrate into society despite their criminal past, and where they accept responsibilty for affecting others. We envision a society where crime no longer has a place and then, when prisons and jails open up, people will join together in freedom. We see a world where violence is forgotten and criminal justice is in the past.
The CLF Prison Ministry is dedicated to recognizing inmates as the pure spirits that they are and allowing them to see that they are not broken. Through this action, inmates can transform themselves into better men, women, husbands, wives, brothers, sons, daughters, parents thus becoming successful and productive members of society.
This is done through consistent personal communication, positive encouragement and being an advocate for a criminal justice system that upholds restorative values in helping individual lives and communities flourish
How You Can Become Involved
We encourage spirit-centered congregants of Creative Living Fellowship to correspond on a consistent basis with inmates eager for a responsible dialog. Primarily via letter, but phone contact, email where applicable and personal visitation encouraged.
Register to visit with inmates for food visits or one-on-one visitation.
Actively engage in discovering and implementing classes that can be delivered to the inmates in order for them to have a better sense of self-worth and promote the positive Spirit within them.
Work with the various department of corrections to find out how to apply these classes.
