Churches Involved

This is a long page with lots of information. It identifies churches involved in ministry with Christian Jail Ministry (CJM). We identify churches and groups which provide financial support for CJM, churches which provide facilities, churches which function as a church group in CJM programs, churches which provide significant numbers of individuals for CJM programs, churches involved in CJM’s Christmas for Inmate Children program, and churches which provide social help for inmates and inmate families.  We conclude by identifying the religious groups that CJM chaplains coordinate for the Howard County Detention Center (HCDC), but which are not formally a part of CJM’s ministry. Our apologies if we inadvertently failed to mention an involved church or group – the omission was not intentional. We appreciate everyone involved in ministry to prisoners.
