YOU’LL BE MATCHED! Email the Ministry to register: Encourageword444@gmail.com. You will be sent a current list of Christians in prison (“Insiders”) who are waiting for an Encourager. Based on the Stephen Ministry guidelines, men are matched with men, women are matched with women.
YOU WILL CHOOSE who you feel might be a good fit for you personally from the list. If he or she is still available, you will be matched. However, matches happen quickly and it is possible the Insider you request will have already been matched with an Encourager.
You will be given basic information about the Insider such as photo, location, age, birthdate, parole hearing date, and prayer request. Additionally, a form completed by the Insider is provided to you, giving you a full understanding of the issues and prayer requests they need.
