Courage For My Life

Abundant Life

We acknowledge many have life experiences that create obstacles to embracing the abundant life promised by Jesus in John 10:10. However, life experiences need not define a person’s life but can empower them to become what God intends through faith in Jesus, the study of God’s Word, and supportive discipleship.

We work in partnership with correctional facilities nationwide, providing faith-based programming and support to inmates. We are dedicated to training and supporting volunteers serving in their local jails and prisons to facilitate our Courage For My Life discipleship program, empowering them to make a meaningful impact among those behind bars. Through our prison ministry, we offer inmates opportunities to participate in our discipleship program and gain access to our print and digital resources that promote emotional healing and spiritual growth.

We are proud of the work we are doing to help incarcerated individuals find hope and healing. Our Courage For My Life discipleship program provides individuals with the tools they need to grow emotionally and spiritually, no matter their circumstances.

Our Impact

We are committed to measuring the impact of our ministry and the effectiveness of our resources. We use pre- and post-questionnaires to assess participants’ emotional and spiritual growth in our Courage For My Life discipleship program. Before beginning the program, each participant completes a pre-questionnaire, which helps us understand their emotional and spiritual state at the outset. After completing the program, they fill out a post-questionnaire, which allows us to gauge the program’s impact on their lives. By analyzing the data from these questionnaires, we can make data-driven decisions to continually improve our ministry and resources. These questionnaires are a valuable tool for measuring the effectiveness of our work and ensuring we are providing the best support possible.
