Outreach opportunities provide a unique combination of serving others while building authentic relationships within the church. They are great places to get started if classes and corporate worship are a little intimidating.

Kairos Prison Ministry is a worldwide ministry that brings the love of God and the light of Christ into prisons. KAIROS is a ministry of love - God's love! The ministry focuses on bringing his love to inmates (both adult and youth offenders), their families, and to prison officials who work with them.
What does a prison minister look like? In KAIROS, anyone can be a prison minister for Christ. Volunteers come in all sizes, shapes, conditions and capabilities. Some people actually go into the prison to work directly with the inmates while others make home-cooked meals in a local church. Others make cookies at home, and still others are able to financially sponsor an inmate for the KAIROS weekend. And even others make posters or placemats or write letters that express the love of God for even the unlovable.
