The Great Commission

Each year over 1,500 inmates pray to

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 and wholesome books & magazines, 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

NOV. GRO POD GRAD WRITES: I can honestly say that a change happened in my life. I was lost before I came to jail. I thought all hope was gone. The GRO Pod showed me the way and things that I never knew. Since I have been in the GRO Pod I can't stay away from the Bible. I take my relationship with God very seriously now. I want to spread the good news like the apostles. I truly want to thank everybody that takes their time to come up here to show us the Word. I'm forever thanful. (Malek 5B)
