Prison ministry to be extended to women

Wednesday, November 7, 2007

 

Corban students are planning to head up a ministry with their imprisoned neighbors. Brian Eberhardt, the new leader for the prison team, is training a group to lead prisoners to Jesus Christ through activities such as singing, dancing, and drawing.

In past years, the prison team would typically minister to about 100 hundred inmates. Eberhardt is currently looking for help with this year’s team. “I am looking for musicians and speakers.” he said. “Any particular public skills that people could bring would be appreciated.”  
The prisoners are really just glad to be there and happy to join. The prisoners know being a part of worship is a privilege, Eberhardt said.

Eberhardt is excited about his ministry and about having the chance to lead a group to the prison.

“It’s a big undertaking at first,” he said. He has participated in the prison ministry in previous years, but this will be his first time as a leader. This year, he plans to extend the team’s mission. “My hope is to have a women’s prison ministry,” Eberhardt said.

Eberhardt would like to see the women’s prison ministry open up so there are more, safer ways for College gals to participate in the prison ministry. He believes this ministry is doing wonders for both college students and inmates.

 

“I usually feel blessed when I leave,” he said. People who would like to learn more about this opportunity are encouraged to email Eberhardt for details on upcoming events: beberhardt@corban.edu.
