About Kairos Prison Ministries
Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. started in the State of Florida in 1976 and is now in 35 states and nine countries including Australia, Canada, Costa Rica, Dominican Republic, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, South Africa and the United Kingdom.
The Kairos method of talks, meditations, and individual and group activities is an invitation to incarcerated men, women and youth to enter into a personal relationship with the living Christ. Kairos is not only to help Christ in saving souls, but also to put human lives in service—literally to transform prison environments.
By bringing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ into prison, Kairos is widely recognized as a highly effective program that positively changes inmate attitudes.
Kairos is one ministry composed of three programs. Kairos Inside serves incarcerated men and women living in prison. Kairos Outside reaches out to the women outside whose lives are impacted by incarceration, because families “do time” right along with their incarcerated relatives/friends. Kairos Torch encourages young men and women to share their life journey and change behavior through participation in a long-term mentoring process.
