“He has sent me to bind up the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and the opening of the prison to those who are bound.” Isaiah 61:1
Who We Are
The Blue Ridge Prison and Jail Ministries, Inc. was incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation on November 1, 1990. The ministry is supported solely by contributions from churches, businesses, and individuals. We take no Federal, State, or Local Government monies.
The organization is a non-denominational, evangelical ministry with volunteers from 18 churches, whose purposes are:
1. To carry out the commands of the Lord, as set forth in Matthew 25:35-37. “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me. I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
2. To minister to the emotional, physical, and spiritual needs of inmates who are incarcerated or have been released from detention or prison, their families, and children, insofar as the volunteers (ambassadors) are able, according to the resources available.
3. To train and equip ambassadors to be able to disciple the broken and downtrodden.
