Prison Ministry

Bill Glass Behind the Walls Prison Ministry
A ministry designed to assist the Church by equipping and igniting Christians to share their faith in Jesus Christ with the “least of these." The primary vehicles used by the ministry to accomplish the task are Day of Champions and Weekend of Champions events which take place in prisons across the United States. Volunteers (dedicates) join with Bill Glass staff and guest speakers to engage the prison population through programs and by personally sharing the gospel.

Bridges to Life
HPUMC has partnered with Bridges to Life and seeks volunteers. The BTL program has two main goals: 1. To reduce recidivism (reoffending) rates of program graduates, thus making our communities safer, and 2. To facilitate the healing process for victims and offenders through its 14-week course. Volunteers are sought to be in small groups at the Hutchins Jail (just 30 minutes south of the church) on Monday nights.

Volunteers Needed: Our rapidly expanding program needs more volunteers to facilitate our curriculum. If you have a willing heart and are a good listener, you can make a difference in the lives of others. Training is provided for all volunteers. We meet each week inside the prison chapel for one night per week for 14 consecutive weeks. Each meeting is from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm on Monday nights at the Hutchins Unit in Dallas. For more information or to volunteer, please call 214-523-2248 or visit the website at www.bridgestolife.org.
