Ministry Description
Prison Fellowship Ministries ("PFM" dba Prison Fellowship) is a nonprofit organization founded in 1976 by former Nixon aide Charles W. Colson to exhort and assist the Church in its ministry to prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families, by its advancement of biblical standards of justice, and by proclaiming the truth of the Gospel.

People behind bars hunger for God’s grace to change their lives and their prisons. Prison Fellowship offers intensive in-prison programs, led by dedicated volunteers and staff, that immerse prisoners in the biblical truths and practical skills they need for a new beginning. Transformed from the inside out, they are prepared to help restore the culture of their prisons and the future of their families and communities.
