 The idea and vision behind Jail Impact Ministries is to meet the need of reaching the precious souls of men and women whose lives have been interrupted by prison time. As of 2008, over 2.3 million adult men and women were held in U.S. prisons and jails.

The courses provided for use in this ministry are published by Emmaus Correspondence School (ECS), part of ECS Ministries. Over 400,000 ECS courses are distributed annually to inmates in North America. Through the Emmaus Prison Ministry, the ECS courses have a proven track record in jail ministry.

Jail Impact Ministries combines the systematic study of biblical courses with the instruction and guidance offered by an instructor. Combining the resources of ECS with instructor interaction will provide student-inmates with solid biblical foundations that can transform lives. Courses have been developed for almost every need: for those with little or no Bible background, and for those who already know their way around in the Scriptures.

Many letters on file testify to the personal blessing people have received through these studies. We pray you too will be blessed by the joy of sharing God's Word through this ministry and the use of Emmaus Correspondence School materials.
