Ministry Description
Bill Glass Behind the Walls is a national Christian ministry based in Dallas, Texas. Each year our ministry equips thousands of Christians for evangelism by training them to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We provide a "hands-on" training laboratory experience by taking them into prisons and jails across the country to share their faith. This Evangelism on the Edge (TM) experience allows believers to face their fears, giving them confidence and igniting them to share the hope they have in Jesus Christ. They are encouraged by witnessing first-hand the life changing power of the Holy Spirit in action!

Behind the Walls is the Prison Ministry division of Bill Glass Champions for Life. Behind the Walls takes teammates (volunteers) into prisons/jails/juvenile facilities to share the Gospel one on one with inmates. Teammates are trained and given materials to use in this outreach. This is front line evangelism and many believers who never led anyone to Christ are estatic to be with other believers and share the joy of leading the "least of these" to Jesus!
Champions for Life (originally Bill Glass Evangelistic Association) was founded by retired professional football player, Bill Glass. Thousands of volunteers (teammates) have been trained to share Jesus Christ during the past 44 years. Through City-Wide Crusades, Prison Evangelism and Assemblies in schools, more than one million have made decisions for Christ. These teammates, after sharing Jesus in prisons are bolder in sharing their faith with others.
