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 25 volunteer associate chaplains involved in a variety of daily team ministries.

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

Testimony

GRO POD GRAD WRITES: I would like to let you know how grateful I am for being a part of the GRO Pod and getting a chance to study under your guidance. During the past 6 months I have experienced a regeneration in my spirit. I have developed a true relationship with Christ and an understanding of what He's done for me. This knowledge has truly changed my life. Even though I am incarcerated, I know that God is with me and has given me a blessing. I have taken responsibility for all my actions and have accepted the consequences that have led me to where I am today. My faith has given me an entirely new outlook on life. I look forward to growing even further in my spiritual life. Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do. Greg 5B
