Our Mission

The mission of Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.

Our vision is a community spiritually freed from the effects of imprisonment reaching all impacted by incarceration, through the love, hope and faith found in Jesus Christ

The Kairos Hobby Team is dedicated to serving Christ in the Hobby Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, located in Marlin, Texas

In Matthew 25, Christ tells us how we are to serve in His name. Among the missions he has set out for us is visiting those who are in prison. Whatever we do for the “least of these”, we do also for Christ.

If you are interested in becoming a part of this exciting ministry that will bless you in so many ways, there will soon be an appication for the team waiting for you in the main menu. Our next major Kairos weekend is set for April 3-6, 2019, at Hobby Unit. Our team meetings which will prepare the servants for the mission ahead begin in January. The dates are included on the application and are on the calendar on this page.

Preparing a colorful prayer chain for each Kairos weekend is a tradition of the ministry teams. Each colored link bears the name of a free world prayer partner, while the white links represent incarcerated brothers and sisters in Christ who are praying for Kairos participants in other units across the world.
