What is JJM?

Juvenile Justice Ministry (JJM) engages teens in relational outreach as they are met in a variety of youth-serving institutions (i.e. detention centers, probation, correctional facilities, etc.) Our strategy is to introduce young people to the life-changing message of Jesus Christ and help them develop a way of living taught by Him. We build valued relationships in the facility that are sustained through ongoing involvement as they re-enter their communities.

What are JJM's focal points?

  • Balanced Programming 
    • Chaplaincy Services - Weekly Bible studies, chapel, and classes
    • Facility Events - Positive group activities like sports, movies, etc.
  • Frequent Contacts
  • One-on-One Conversations
  • Aftercare
