Kairos Prison Ministry

The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.

The word, Kairos, is a Greek word meaning in God's Special Time or in the Fullness of Time indicating an opportunity for our participants and guests to re-consider their life choices - as hearts are changed, inmates begin to take responsibility for their actions - it's like a front row seat at a miracle - transforming lives and impacting the world.

Chapelwood started supporting Kairos Weekends at the Carol Vance Unit in Richmond TX in early 2000 and that support has grown to now include Kairos Weekends at The Walls Unit in Huntsville TX and also at the Terrell Unit in Rosharon TX.
