The Great Commission

Each year over 1,500 inmates pray to
receive Christ in the intake area alone

Forgotten Man Ministries brings together inmates, chaplains, and lay-workers in the study and ministry of God’s Word.

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, showing of Christian DVD’s, and the facilitation of pastor visits and local church worship services.

Presently, Chaplain Al Novak, a full-time missionary with Forgotten Man Ministries, heads up a staff  including part-time Assistant Chaplain Sue Nolff,  and part-time GRO Pod Chaplain Leo Wynne - in addition to 27 volunteer associate chaplains involved in a variety of daily team ministries.

There are over 150 jail ministry volunteers assisting in discipleship mentoring monthly.

Testimony

I had the world on my shoulder not knowing what way I should walk in. Before I would always say that I trust in the Lord but at that time I was just saying it but now I know that I am loved. I prayed that God would bring me sombody that could help me understand the Word of God better. Before I knew it I ended up on 5B then into the GRO Pod. And now I can teach what I haved learned to somebody that may be lost like I was. I thank the brothers that come up here when they really don't have to. When I get out I would like to keep my studies going on so I can keep growing in God's Word. Because of the GRO Pod I think different, talk different, and it's not I who lives, but Christ who lives in me.
- Mikos (5B)
