This Revolutionary Assignment in 2017
Will BUILD Something Great!
Let's create breakthrough in the inmate culture that goes beyond meeting only spiritual needs. Our goal is to see Believers empowered in prison to minister freedom to the captives themselves. As indigenous missionaries, they will be discipled to shift the culture around them, and effectively deposit the transformational love and grace of God.
Let's Make God Famous in Prison!Will you join our "construction crew" and help us build something great as you allocate your year-end giving?

What if the KEY to TRANSFORMING a PRISON was simply PLANTING a Kingdom Church BEHIND BARS.
John was notorious for being a top prison gang leader. Once he turned his life over to Christ, the hate and anger melted into a tender heart filled with humility and praise. He is now a leader of a different breed, ushering his fellow brothers into Gods presence through worship. God has blessed John with an exceptional musical gift that was eclipsed by a false identity. Connecting with his true identity and purpose not only has changed John, but now impacts each person that touches his life. To talk with John today, you'd never guess his past had been so violent. The miracle of salvation unleashed a spiritual giant behind bars.
There are many gifted leaders locked behind bars, paying the price for their crime, and rightfully so. However, their identity isn't tied to their crime anymore than our identity is tied to the sin in our past. God doesn't disqualify them from the Body of Christ. The fact that they're in prison doesn't mean they can't accomplish great things--that's just a zip code change. Prisoners are reminded everyday of their failures and serious mistakes, but there comes a point when they become equipped to join us in advancing God's kingdom.
Healing Wings Ministries invites you to participate in planting The Church Behind Bars in the state of Florida. This is NOT another prison program. This is a church plant opportunity to raise up an army of end time warriors. Your financial partnership will enable prisoners like John, to be groomed in leadership as God's champions.
Solid Rock Ministry in partnership with Healing Wings Ministries will adopt:
- Marion Correctional Institution: Men's Prison
- Lowell Correctional Institution: USA's largest women's prison and home of Florida's death row.
We need to raise a total of 100K to resource the Church Behind Bars Initiative.This amount will be broken into 4 fundraising phases:
Development and Annual Operating Budget ~ Administrative Upgrades ~ Launching ~ Evaluation
- Plant a prototype church inside 2 prisons to raise up incarcerated leaders to cross over into their inheritance, and occupy the territory of these church plants.
- 144 training sessions over a 12 month period to equip leaders to be evangelists and missionaries.
- Teach inmates to expand the Kingdom through discipleship and ministering to new believers.
- Intensive Bible training and teaching on the roles and sacraments of the Church.
- Equip the Church Behind Bars how to operate in community as the Body of Jesus Christ.
- Publish the documented results in a book to motivate a paradigm shift in prison ministry methods within the U.S.
- Distribute this book to prisons, wardens, chaplains and those in prison ministry.
