Our goal is to bring awareness to the community of individuals needing to transition back into our community and into society in general. Also to be able to bring awareness to the community of the ongoing problem of people continually going back to jail because of not having any hope and lack of basic resources available to them.
Chain Breaker Ministry works with citizens in the Missoula County Detention Center, Montana State Prison System, and other regional Detention Facilities by interacting with incarcerated men and women, as well as, the Detention officers developing personal relationships and relaying the love of Christ. This Ministry is currently facilitating the organization and focus of religious ministries coming into the Missoula Country Detention Center that interact with people in jail to assist in giving them hope, love and a purpose in life.
Are you passionate about what we're doing? Let us know! We are always looking for volunteers to help us make our vision a reality. We'll help you find a way to volunteer that best suits you. We're excited to have you join the team!
We are hoping with your help to be able to assist released citizens with:
· Transportation from the detention center upon release to food, clothing, and shelter as needed.
· Provide temporary housing, group homes, or discipleship recovery homes.
· Support programs such as mentoring, addiction & recovery groups, life skills classes, bible studies, and faith based counseling.
· Bibles and other study related materials
· One on one letter writing, encouragement in the faith.
Whether you help through monetary donations, volunteering your time, or spreading our mission through word-of-mouth, thank you. We couldn't accomplish our goals without the help of supporters like you.
2019 was an eventful year in the jail, The jail added TV's to all the class rooms and hardware to hook up memory stick which enabled us to bring church services with full worship music and sermons directly to the guys and gals, which was received very well and had a great impact for Jesus Christ and on the lives those needing a lot of hope!
We had one inmate recently named James who said, "that when he was on the outside and had all the money, cars, and ladies he wasn't excited about any of that as he was when he walks into his cell where he and his cell mates were getting ready to study Gods words and pray together". God is on the move!!
From our bible studies we have had a few men from our jail bible studies who have gone on to the Montana State Prison system, those guys need our prayers and support. As you can imagine it can be an overwhelming thing for men and women going there!
We have been writing letters and ordering them a good study bible. When they leave from our local bible studies they can't take thier bibles with them for security reasons, so this helps keep them excited about the things of God, keeps them encouraged, and engaged in studying the bible. They have alot of obstacles ahead of them and we want to give them all the tools to be strong and be able to standup against the attack of the enemy!
We will have a need for more people who are willing to write to inmates, be an encourager, and a mentor thru the mail. All correspondence can be done though Chain Breaker Ministry to keep your personal information secure and confidential. If your interested in writing an inmate or sponsoring a new study bible ($50.00) please contact us and we will set you up to be a blessing!
We hope to have a Faith Based Half Way House here in Missoula for inmates returning into the community, that dont have family or resources for a place to live. If you know anyone who is interested in Donating a home, or donating towards the purchase of a home here in the Missoula area please contact our Ministry
