Late this Summer, I began a worship service in cooperation with a Presbyterian colleague at the IL Youth Correctional Facility in Pere Marquette. We (2 pastors and my pianist) provide a “full service” worship experience at the facility with traditional hymns, a sermon, prayer, Holy Communion, etc.
Monday, December 28, we will baptize 2 of the boys who have accepted Christ as their Savior! This was a big step considering the context and we are overjoyed to be involved in God’s work in what I consider a marginalized mission field.
Please keep the ongoing ministry in your prayers and if you would like to participate with us, please contact me!
