Hooked on Jesus Ministries has been in full-time prison ministry since 1990!
Our Commission: Has God Forgotten The Inmate?
“The Spirit of the sovereign Lord is on me. Because the Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives, and release from darkness the prisoners." (Isaiah 61:1)
It is only by the Grace of God that I am able to serve as the director of “Hooked on Jesus Prison Ministries Inc”. It is such a blessing to serve the Lord and be apart of the work that is near and dear to His heart. That work, of course, is with the precious women and men who are serving time in the Oklahoma prison system. These aren’t just faceless names you hear about on the evening news. They are errant people who have been your neighbors, friends, and in some cases, perhaps a member of your family. They are made in His image, fashioned by His hand, and He loves them as much as He loves you.
I feel an overwhelming joy when I go into these Correctional Facilities. I have the opportunity to share Jesus Christ either by Preaching the Word or sharing on a one on one basis.
“And Jesus said unto Simon, Fear not: from henceforth thou shalt catch men.” (Luke 5:10 b)
When Christ called Simon Peter, he told Peter He would make him a fisher of men. And that’s our Commission. As I go into the prisons, I go with the intension of building relationships with the men and women doing time. By either leading them to a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, or encouraging the incarcerated Christians to have a closer walk with Him.
As believers, we must remember the suffering that Christ endured on the cross in order to free us from sin. The punishments for our sins may be placed on a grade scale while we are hear on earth, but in God’s eyes even the smallest sin has pulled us away from Him. Christ came to save all people because we all need forgiveness for our sins. And, as His followers we must share His love and forgiveness with all people, wherever we may find them.
