Who We Are

Working Men of Christ offers housing and mentoring to those coming out of incarceration to help them become productive, healthy members of the body of Christ and their families. We believe that a healing approach to all those affected by crime and incarceration can contribute to healthy, prosperous communities. Our ministry is grounded in the conviction that we are all made in God's image, and there is no one who escapes His Love. Jesus, who was also put on trial, convicted, and executed, continues to offer hope and healing for all who seek Him. Through the awakening offered by a Christ-focused life, those who were broken are made whole again and are mobilized to serve their neighbors, breaking the cycle of crime.

Working Men of Christ begins the work with each resident while they are still incarcerated and nearing release. Before being released, they complete a workbook called "The Captivity Series: The Key to Your Expected End" by Katie Souza. Upon release, they come to live at one of our discipleship houses where they participate in daily Bible study. The cost to stay in the houses is $110/week. Through mentoring and community involvement residents are reintegrated into society with a solid foundation. This has proven to be an extremely effective process as evidenced by our 2.5% recidivism rate over 7 years compared to the national average of 67.8% over three years!
