Keys to Freedom Ministries will strive to keep all of our volunteers and supporters informed. Here is the link to the Grand Traverse county COVID-19 Website for updates on what’s happening in our county.
PLEASE KEEP OUR JAIL STAFF AND SHERIFFS DEPARTMENT IN YOUR PRAYERS. UNFORTUNATELY, WE ARE UNABLE TO MINISTER IN PERSON WITH THE INMATES AT THIS TIME, BUT WE CAN STILL PRAY FOR THEM AND ASSISST THE FAMILIES ON THE OUTSIDE. PLEASE CONTACT US IF YOU KNOW OF ANYONE IN NEED!
We Are Keys to Freedom Ministries
“Truly I tell you, whatever you did for the least of these, you did for me.”
Keys to Freedom Ministries seeks to restore dignity to those affected by Crime and incarceration. Ministering inside the jails, our trained Chaplains and Program Providers introduce prisoners to hope available through Jesus Christ.
Working on the outside with Churches, para-church organizations and community ministries, our goal is to support those behind bars and their families looking for restoration and a path to wholeness.
Our prayer is that ex-offenders can return to their families with restored relationships…to their community with a job….to their church with a desire to serve!
We want to seek out and cultivate strong relationships with our Church communities and educate them about the spiritual needs of the incarcerated men and women in the local jails. Our objective is to extend the ministry to more jails in our area.
“ I honestly cannot think of anything more effective in jail ministry than the local church body coming along side of the incarcerated.“
We anticipate, by having personal contact with inmates, the staff will have less violence and decreasing complaints. Having open communications with the Chaplains will hopefully alleviate frustration for those requesting help.
It is the duty of the Chaplains to work with the Sheriffs office and staff to effectively communicate to our volunteers the rules and protocol in the jail. Volunteers will have a clear chain of communication with one authority responsible for any questions or concerns they may have.
