Ministry to those in the Jefferson County Jail
Rockport has a Jail Ministry in the Jefferson County (Missouri) Jail in partnership with the Jefferson Baptist Association and other local churches in which we evangelize the inmates in the Jail.
The ministry has been going on for 13 years. We visit prisoners individually, one-on-one, on a weekly basis. We have visited over 1300 prisoners; some for just a few weeks, others for months to give them the gospel of the Lord Jesus.
“Church Services” are conducted on Wednesday nights in the jail. There are two, separate hour long services with men and two services with women. These occur in the prisoner’s living quarters. We meet with 75 to 100 prisoners each Wednesday
The Ministry supplies Bibles, study Bibles, tracts, and a whole assortment of good Christian books to the individuals we visit and to the Jail population as a whole.
Prayer is the backbone of the ministry and there is a daily prayer request for prayer for one of the individual prisoners we are visiting.
The contact for the Jail Ministry is Bake Ottofy, he can be contacted at [email protected].
