Ministry & Mission


Kairos is a Christian ministry that seeks to transform the environment inside prisons and to support the incarcerated in creating and sustaining strong, supportive Christian communities within the prison. Kairos works to achieve this goal by conducting two weekend-long retreats, modeled after the Cursillo movement, each year in each prison and through monthly reunions and weekly small group meetings.

You may serve on a retreat team that will be trained and prepared using time proven methods before entering the prison for a weekend. Or, you may be part of the group who support the retreat team without entering the prison. Kairos Outside ministry, which serves female family members of incarcerated individuals and takes place entirely outside the prison environment, also needs volunteers.
