Inmate Inspirations

Inmate Inspirations LOGOb2

Matthew 25:35-36 For I was… in prison, and ye came unto me.

Inmate Inspirations (from here forward referred to as II) is a ministry of East Coast Church to and for those who are incarcerated. It is an effective way to provide discipleship and fellowship. Jesus spoke of true believers interest in those in prison in Matthew 25 (above). Likewise, the apostle commanded us in Hebrews 13:3 to, Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them. With that in mind, the importance of this work, to saints and sinners alike, cannot be overstated.

It is a ministry to them:

  • By providing bible-based literature at no cost. (Click to check out or purchase our books.)
  • By raising funds to send them these books:
  • An inmate is sponsored for $15 a month for one year. Sponsorship provides them with two books per month for 12 months. The sponsors and inmates will be the same sex and encouraged to write one another to provide Christian friendship and inspiration; Christian pen-pals.
  • Larger contributions will be used to send bulk shipping’s to Chaplains requesting II materials to be handed out. From these bulk materials, inmates can then sign up by mail for II and matched with a sponsor.

It is a ministry for them:

  • By providing them with two copies of the same book each month, we ask that they be a light and give away the extra copy to someone else.
  • We encourage them to have other interested inmates send their full inmate addresses to Inmate Inspirations using the address below so that we can enroll them and find them a sponsor.
  • We also ask that they send us testimonies of salvation and encouragement to share with our contributors and sponsors.
  • Finally, we hope they share with their friends and family on the outside the blessing that Inmate Inspirations has been to them so that they too can become and II sponsor.
