Our seminars have been studying the life of David. He was a man after God's own heart, but he allowed sin to cause him to stumble. David was not where he was suppose to be or doing what he was suppose to do when he saw Bathsheba and gave into sin. He thought he could get away with it, or cover it up. It cost him dearly, but God forgave his sin, cleansed his heart and restored the joy of his salvation.
Our inmates can relate to David. They have made poor choices and are living out the consequences. We encourage them to take this time and seek God's will in their life. They are challenged to make Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior. Many have chosen to pray the same prayer David prayed in Psalms 139.
How can we stop that trend? We believe at Prison Prevention Ministries that sharing the Word of God with inmates during a 3-day revival, a 5-week follow-up New Believer’s class, and regularly scheduled life-skills seminars based on biblical principles can change the return rate. It has been noted that recidivism is greatly reduced for those inmates who complete Bible based seminars and claim the name of Christ.
Our goal is to prevent inmates from returning to prison by sharing the life changing message of Jesus Christ. It is this transformation of the heart and mind that equips one to succeed. Your generous support allows us to continue to train volunteers, schedule seminars and classes, furnish Bibles and printed study lessons.

"I am so thankful to witness HIS provision in answering our prayer at our last Board Meeting. Praise God for this is HIS ministry and HE has again proven HIS favor on PPM to continue to do the work HE has called us. It is amazing how HE provides. Last night an inmate at WSP prior to our scheduled Bible Study was sharing with another inmate that he felt very lonely during Christmas. When he came into our class room we prayed that God would provide what each of us needed.
Our first class was last night for the 1Q2017 and we are studying "Reasons to Celebrate - Studies from the Book of Psalms". The first lesson was "We are Never Alone". You should have seen his face throughout the evening. He knew God gave him what he needed. I highly recommend that you all step into HIS work in prison or at least attend the Revival at Silverdale Prison. You will be blessed and be a blessing to others. Thank you God for your favor to PPM."
