Prison Ministry: Insights
about prison culture! Mandatory reading for Christian Chaplains
who do not understand the commandments regarding visiting prisons."
For new prison ministry chaplains, prison culture is like visiting
a foreign land, and the thought of ministering in prison to those
incarcerated can be a very intimidating prospect. Many churches
have sent teams of ministers into prisons, and nearly two-thirds
of them have returned to their churches defeated. Prison chaplains
must have a far better view of what prison ministry is all about
if their are to get through many of the trouble areas in the ministry

Educate Yourself In Prison Ministry & Prison Culture with self
to the Incarcerated: In Ministry to the Incarcerated, Dr.
Henry G. Covert uses his experience as both police officer and
prison chaplain to examine the problems of the incarcerated -
people who are often misunderstood and forgotten. Dr. Covert addresses
specific areas of inmate stress, such as low self-esteem, guild,
and unrealistic expectations, and explains how these can be major
obstacles to a prisoner's personal and spiritual development.
According to Dr. Covert, many inmates truly desire to change.
He gives examples of biblical themes that can promote healing
and regeneration among prisoners, drawing specifically on the
teachings of Jesus. He calls for staff education, environmental
improvement, and a pastoral presence to enable our prisons to
become sites of rehabilitation, rather than places of punishment.
