Ambassador Church in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., hosted Prison Ministries Day for 50 attendees representing 15 congregations. Fort Myers Shores Pastor Robert Ferguson, presented the theme, The Joy of Ministry. Ferguson also serves as Florida Conference’s south region Prison Ministries coordinator.

After a fellowship meal, an afternoon training program began for prison ministries certification. Twenty-five individuals who completed an earlier certification training program were awarded their certificates.

New Prison Ministries team members will join their counterparts in service opportunities by giving Bible studies, being part of the pen pal ministry, and getting involved in the Love A Mother’s Baby (L.A.M.B.) program.

Prison Ministries is a rewarding program, but church members won’t have that experience if they don’t step out. So, “Go Ye Therefore” into prison.
