As a counselor and chaplain’s assistant, I have worked in prison ministry for over 20 years. I have been around the court system, working with all kinds of down-and-out people, both inside prison walls and out. For many years at Lighthouse, as part of our ministry here, we hosted a residential recovery program. Many marginalized and poor individuals came to live and rebuild their lives. In the past eleven years, we have helped over 60 people gain a new chance at life and find renewed hope.
