First Baptist Church Sponsors Prison, Jail, Juvenile Awareness Conference by Kathy Reandeau The title is a bit intimidating, isn’t it? After all, it mentions prison and who really wants to talk about that? It’s easier to sweep it under the rug and pretend this is somebody else’s concern. That works unless you’re one of the four people in America who is impacted by this issue, including inmates, corrections officers, victims and all of their families and friends. Even if you’re not in one of these groups, you are still affected simply by living in New York. Currently there are about 35,000 people being held in 70 prisons across the state. Tax dollars are spent supporting those people and possibly their families during the time of incarceration. When they’re released, recidivism rates are high - 40% of men return to prison in three years, while 30% of the women do. Those who
don’t are expected to be able to assimilate back into society and family life. There are high divorce rates among both inmates and officers. But perhaps those that suffer most are the children. There are about 10,000 children of inmates in NYS. They are 8-10 times more likely to follow in their parents’ footsteps because there are no role models, and nobody who fills the void when a parent is away. This will affect all of us down the road. Instead of ignoring these statistics what if we spent time thinking about the questions of how to help people in prison and after they’re released, what can be done to support their families and victims, can we make it any easier for the corrections officers, and what can we do to bring God into this equation? That’s exactly what the 4th Restorative Justice Ministry/Prison Ministry Conference
plans to do. This event gathers together experts to provide an education of what is going on in the field, describe positive things that are happening, and highlight dedicated people who will share their insights on what we can do to help. This is an opportunity to talk to professionals with hundreds of years of experience, who most would not otherwise have a chance to meet. Display booths will provide materials and information on different ministries. Training will be available for those who want to learn how to do more.

Everyone is invited to attend, including those who may be part of a ministry or want to know more about the ministries. Anybody who is impacted by a loved one being in jail and is looking for programs for children and families should attend. Or anybody who is just interested in learning about this issue and finding out what can be done to help. The $15 conference fee includes the speaker and workshop sessions, free materials, a continental breakfast, and a spaghetti and meatball lunch. Special music will be provided by First Baptist’s pastor, Kurt Coffed. First Baptist member and Prison Fellowship Volunteer, Charlie Popavich, will serve as MC. Speaker topics include Good News Jail & Prison Ministry, The Correctional Environment, The Prison Worship Service, and Testimony of God’s Grace. Workshop topics include Angel Tree Prison Fellowship, Re-Entry Coaching Ex-Offenders, Residential Aftercare, Mercy Heart Ministry and 1st Principles Study. The driving force behind this conference is Prison to Praise International. This organization, which has been in operation since 1996, was founded by David Umfreville who continues to serve as Director. I spoke to Dave who reminded me that, “Today’s inmates are tomorrow’s neighbors. We can all play a role in how well that neighbor relationship works out.” Prison to Praise serves as a ministerial support
organization. They partner with Christian churches, providing volunteer Chaplain visits to incarcerated members and loved ones. They also assist the efforts of prison Chaplains with discipleship and preparing prisoners and their families for reentry into society connecting them with a nurturing church community. Other aspects of the ministry include: • Work with homes that house parole-sponsored ex-inmates - help them find jobs, relearn social skills and “take the prison out of the man” • Inmate and Family Support through jail visits, discipleship correspondence, Bible study, Christian counseling, and prison fellowship. • Resource Materials for Chaplains and Inmates • Consulting, Training, and Support - Develop and facilitate training, conference coordination, correctional facility protocols, and more If you’re interested but can’t attend the conference, visit the Prison to Praise web site at www. prisontopraise.org to
learn about how you can help by being a volunteer, collecting books, collecting gifts for the Angel Tree, becoming a conference coordinator, joining the Prayer Posse, or donating. Dave stressed that they need thousands of new or gently used Christian books and Bibles, study Bibles, and large print items. Especially helpful are Christian commentaries, devotionals, and Christian bios. Donations should contain no wire spirals or metal, and no home address or personal information. The conference is sponsored by: Prison Fellowship, Sundoulos, COPE, Prison-To-Praise International, Chaplain Fellowship Ministries, and Restorative Justice Ministries Network of North America.

Lighthouse Baptist Church Breaking the Chains of Addiction by Kevin Walker The Reformers Unanimous Program at Lighthouse Baptist Church in North Tonawanda has been helping those in our community for over three years now. The Bible based program boasts an 80% recovery rate, if the program is followed through. While speaking with the Director, Joshua Freundschuh, he stated that addictions of every kind, including alcohol, drugs, pornography, gambling and others are dealt with in a Biblical program. This approach uses Scripture to emphasize
the recovery process. In each group (men with men, ladies with ladies), everyone can openly discuss what issues, setbacks and accomplishments they have had that week without the details of the addiction and in a non-judgmental setting. Reformers Unanimous class format is split up into three different segments which are entitled Talk, Talk, Talk ! Each section is designed to develop a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Talk to God: Prayer and Testimonies
First, we talk to God in prayer and testimony. Each student is given an opportunity to share a need or request to be prayed for. We then have an encouraging testimony time where many students are able to share personal victories they have experienced that week. Talk to Each Other: Counsel Groups Second, we talk to each other. Reformers Unanimous breaks into counsel groups to share each of our burdens or blessings. Each group is led by a counsel leader. If anyone needs
personal counsel, it is made available. Students go over their completed challenges during this time and encourage each other in their road is open to everyone and listen to people talk to recovery. there is no cost to attend about their problems. God Talks to Us: We teach what God says meetings. Preaching to do about it. We teach For more Third, God talks to the Holy Bible. information visit: us. He does that, Lord The group meets willing, during the www.gotaddictions.com every Friday at 7:00pm message. Reformers or call Josh at and on Sunday mornUnanimous doesn’t just ings at 10:00.

Cost of the event is $2.00 per person; children younger than two years old are FREE. A photo with the bunny costs $1.00 The admission fee includes breakfast and a visit with the bunny and a gift . Each child will also receive a bag for the Easter Egg Hunt, a coloring activity packet, four game tickets, prizes, a large craft project and a small project in addition to one entry per child for the door prize.
The breakfast menu includes cereal, hardboiled eggs, French toast sticks, sausage, donut holes, fresh fruit, orange juice, coffee, and tea. This year marks the thirteenth year that the church has sponsored the community event. In 1999 and 2000 it was known as “The Easter Extravaganza” with only the Easter Egg Hunt, games, and crafts. Starting in 2001, the breakfast was added. “We usually have somewhere from 300 400 people who attend”, said Karen Sinon, who is again the chairperson for the event. “It is always a fun day for everyone. It’s great to be able to use all of our inside spaces for the event. Cold weather, rain, or snow never messes up the day. We look forward to seeing lots of kids and parents from the community again this year.”
