The VVBC Jail and Prison Ministry is a group of volunteers who conduct services for the people currently incarcerated in the Knox County Detention Center. Matthew 25:36 says, “ I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” Our ultimate goal is to lead inmates to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and to encourage their walk with Him. We accomplish this in the following ways:
- Preaching and teaching at weekly inmate church services
- Counseling and praying with inmates weekly
- Participating in Bible Studies and classes offered to inmates
In order to be involved with this ministry one must go through the correct classes and training conducted by the Knox Country Sheriffs Detention Center to gain access into the jail.
