Chaplaincy Corrections


County jails are where public offenders are first confined and where they feel the impact of their situation. They have been defeated. They feel helpless and hopeless. A chaplain can perform a valid and effective ministry to these offenders if the volunteers are carefully selected and if officials cooperate and support their efforts.

To determine if there is a need in the jail, contact the Captain or Jail Administrator. If you want to volunteer in a prison, the chaplain should be contacted at the prison and if there is not a chaplain, the volunteer coordinator should be contacted.

Volunteers should have a deep concern for individuals. Inmates detect insincerity quickly; thus the motive of volunteers should be genuine.
