The Great Commission

Each year over 1,500 inmates pray to

FMM chaplains conduct daily in-house jail ministries that include Biblical one-on-one counseling, Bible correspondence courses, group Bible studies, discipleship training units (GRO Pods), distribution of Bibles and Christian books and wholesome books & magazines, showing of Christian DVD’s, and the facilitation of pastor visits and local church worship services.

Presently,

Rev. Albert M Novak, full-time lead chaplain with Forgotten Man Ministries, heads up a staff including part-time Assistant Chaplain Mickey Tankersley,   Administrative Assistant & Lead Female Chaplain Sue Nolff,  and part-time GRO Pod Chaplain Leo Wynne – in addition to 29 volunteer associate chaplains involved in a variety of daily team ministries.  In addition there are over 200 jail ministry volunteers assisting with Bible teaching, correcting courses, and personal mentoring each month.

Testimony

SEPTEMBER GRADUATING GRO POD STUDENTS WRITE: Charles writes, "During my participation in the GRO Pod, I have changed spiritually and mentally in so many different areas. The course has taught me to be more humble as well as not to lose my temper so fast. The whole course has had an enormous effect on my life and has turned me into a stronger and more faithful Christian. I would like to thank everyone who has made this program possible and to all the good people who take time out of their personal lives to come help us people that everyone else seems to have forgotten about. Thank You and God Bless." Anthony writes, "Being in the GRO Pod has helped me in ways I cannot even begin to describe but I can say this that through the GRO Pod I am sure of my salvation. I have a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and I am learning more and more about God's love letter, the Bible, everyday. I am truly appreciative for this program and I would recommend it to every inmate in the jail."
