Because of the incarceration of a dear loved one, Leslie quickly realized the importance of Through God Comes Justice Ministries!  My hands were tied, but theirs were not.

Priorities

1. To provide Christian services to inmates, detainees, Sheriff's Department, and their families within the framework of the values of the Christian faith and the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ.

2. To Provide consultation to church bodies and individuals.

3. To provide referrals and necessities, such as food, clothing, shelter, and Christian counseling, as available for the inmates, detainees, persons on probation, parolees, Sheriff's Department, and their families.

4. To assume and share the blessings and responsibility of fulfilling the full Gospel as commissioned by Christ Jesus.

5. To emphasize, encourage, and promote the ministry. 

The main focus of Through God Comes Justice (TGCJ) Ministries, Inc. is to meet the spiritual needs of the inmates, detainees, Sheriff's Department personnel, and their families. We operate under the values of the Christian faith and the teaching of Jesus, but all spiritual needs of other faiths are addressed. There are two Chaplains, one male, and one female, to counsel inmates, one on one. It is so important to counsel those in need and sometimes dire situations. the chaplains bring love and hope to many who have none. Chaplains average about 15 counseling sessions a day. They also deliver death notices to the inmates when family members pass away. These chaplains are critical to the jail and helping those in need.

We believe & know it to be true: Jail/Prison Ministry is one of the most important mission fields in America today!
