A typical Sabbath includes a Prison Ministry volunteer offering the sermon and testimonies offered by former inmates who found Jesus through Adventist Prison Ministry and a short informational meeting on Prison Ministry in the afternoon. However, the program can be tailored to your church’s interests.
