We believe that volunteers are the hands and feet of Jesus in the jails. Our ministry would not be possible without the two thousand men and women across the state who serve in various capacities in and out of the jail. There are many different ways for you to serve or support the mission of FMM.
Volunteer in the Jail
There are many different ways to serve inmates in your local jail. We need men and women to lead worship services, facilitate Bible studies, mentor inmates, assist with addiction classes, operate our book cart ministry, and teach in our GRO Pods. Each jail has different needs and we would love to get you connected today.
Bible Course Mentor
FMM has partners with local Christians to offer correspondence Bible courses to inmates in our jails. Our chaplains need local volunteers to mentor inmates so we can provide options for inmates to make the most of their time, so they can grow in the Lord’s wisdom and understanding (Eph. 5:15-17). Our vision is for every inmate to have the opportunity to study God’s Word and be disciplined in it. Bible Course Mentors do not interact directly with inmates inside the secure part of the jail, but rather through written communications that protect the privacy of our mentors.
Our hope is that when someone leaves jail they would be welcomed with open arms into the local church to help nurture their new life in Christ. We need advocates in the local church who are willing to assist in helping returning citizens find their place in your church community.
Banquets are one of our biggest fundraising opportunities and it takes many helping hands to make them a success. We need table hosts, greeters, people to help with set up, and more. Each county has different opportunities to serve, but we would love to have you on our team!
