Coming Up

Prison Ministry Conference 2018

Sep 2018    

At the heart of prison ministry is the choice to love as Jesus loves, to empathise with inmates’ suffering, and to journey through life with them as we would a brother.

But what does that look like?

Engage in this conversation with us at this year’s Prison Ministry Conference. Organised by Prison Fellowship Singapore, this conference unites volunteers, ministers and people with a heart for reaching out to inmates, ex-offenders and their families so that God’s love may be made manifest in and through us as the body of Christ.

Look forward to hearing from speakers across various vocations who will explore on-the-ground concerns in ministry, dispel possible misconceptions and encourage one another through testimonies, questions and responses.

This year’s conference will also see a new segment, where you will be able to connect with like-minded small groups through three separate ministry-focused workshops exploring these topics: “Embracing the Ex-offender”, “Supporting the Families through LOVE in Action”, and “Engaging the Wider Prison Community”.

Discover more about prison ministry and how we can build an inclusive Church—reaching out, breaking barriers and embracing one another with the love of Christ.
