We welcome new volunteers to the ministry and are encouraged whenever Christians are seeking God's will about possibly getting involved in prison ministry. As volunteers in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice we take our responsibilities there very seriously, and the environment we minister in is not one to be taken lightly. Therefore we have a screening process for volunteer applicants who are not known to us personally, or are not recommended to us by other PBI counselors.
To become a part of the PBI Ministry Team, or just to check out prison ministry to see if that's where God would have you serve, we will need some information from you. Please click here for the form.

However you choose to get involved, I know the Lord will bless you through this area of service to Him. God's Word says that to minister to those in prison, the sick, a stranger, the homeless, is to minister to Him (Matt. 25:31-40). What greater privilege do we have in this life than to serve the one who saved our souls?
