I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to
prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."
Jer 29:11 (NIV)
Oregon Women's Prison Ministry Mission Statement.
Oregon Women's Prison Ministry is dedicated to restoring hope and direction to the lives of women prisoners by sharing the love of Jesus Christ through evangelism, discipleship, one-on-one counseling and encouraging their transition from prison to the community.
Prisoners are lost sheep - God is longing to receive them.
Welcome, my name is Christina and for over fourteen years I have been ministering as the founder of this ministry to women inmates in Oregon. Our ministry is called Oregon Women's Prison Ministry. We have been trained to minister by the Department of Corrections (DOC), the Washington and Multnomah County Jails and the Washington Corrections Center for Women. God's grace, mercy, forgiveness and joy are what I want these women to experience for themselves. God has given me a deep passion to reach these women inmates for Jesus Christ. 2 Timothy 4:2 says, "preach the Word; be prepared in season and out of season; correct, rebuke, and encourage- with great patience and careful instruction."
Three times a week we go to the state prison at Coffee Creek and conduct private counseling with maximum and minimum security inmates and those in treatment, providing Bibles. We provide inmates with The Recovery Bible. We also lead praise and worship, provide personal one-on-one counseling, lead a Bible study and give the incarcerated women an invitation to receive Christ.
At Coffee Creek Correctional Facility State Prison in Wilsonville, there are over 1,000 female prisoners who need to hear the Gospel. Over the years, God has used this ministry to reach out to inmates who are poor, oppressed, hopeless, lonely, and rejected by society. We give them hope, purpose and direction in their lives.
God has used this ministry over the years to give these women hope and encouragement. Would you please pray for this special ministry? If the Lord is leading you to help, please make your check payable to:
