2016-18 NBA Prison and Jail Ministries Peer Group

Learn more about the first NBA Prison and Jail Ministries Peer Group! From 2016 to 2018, the NBA connected prison and jail ministry leaders in a small setting designed to cultivate support, mutual dialogue, spiritual renewal, and learning. This first cohort focused on public narrative—how to share their stories and clearly convey the significant impact of ministries through the context of prisons and jails. NBA Prison and Jail Ministries helped participants workshop and prepare their narratives, and then recorded and produced videos with each ministry. Feel free to visit this page and watch their videos!
