Transformative ministry in correctional facilities
Ryan Newswanger recently joined us on Wake Up Right to share about the amazing impact of Jubilee Ministries in the Lackawanna and Luzerne County prisons and transformative ministry in correctional facilities! Ryan is the CEO of Jubilee Ministries, a prison ministry having impact for over 45 years.
Jubilee currently has 14 chaplains serving in 9 correctional facilities. Jubilee focuses on heart change through Christ by bringing the gospel into the prisons and seeing life change through sharing it. One distinctive of Jubilee Ministries is their Aftercare Program. Jubilee Aftercare offers a structured, residential environment for those affected by incarceration which provides an individualized and holistic opportunity for life change. This includes addressing the deep needs of individuals caught in the cycles of incarceration, addiction, and unhealthy relationships.
It was a joy to hear Ryan’s heart for transformative ministry during our conversation! Be sure to listen, pray, and have your heart stirred for the sharing of the gospel in our correctional facilities!
