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.

I call her my Resplendent Bride because I have eyes and ears and for a time she even let me hold her hand.
Yet although her time among us was cut short by cancer, I still feel the afterglow of her resplendence. We were married less than three years. I buried my heart and my wedding ring in St. Louis.
We walked through the shadowlands hand-in-hand until she drew her final breath. She suffered gracefully in a world that does not know what to do with pain.
The Christian faith has always been about death and resurrection, for those twin truths were the reason the Lord Jesus sojourned among us. We have forgotten the old way—we have forgotten how to suffer and die well.
Danielle was my Resplendent Bride, and the church is Christ’s. I invite you to walk through this broken house so that you may know our small part in the divine love story.
As King David said in Psalm 27:13, “. . . I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living!” and if not, I know the resurrection fast approaches.
Come, won’t you sit amongst the graves with me, and dream of Resurrection Day?

The Bible pictures losers in many ways—as lost sheep, mug victims, lower class citizens, frauds, and runaway kids, to mention just a few. But the Bible also contains the good news that God has provided a way to have a fresh start in life. Do you feel like you’re a “born loser”? This Bible course will help you learn how you can be born (again) to win!View full product details
