Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. is the parent organization of a body of ministries addressing the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women and children, to their families and to those who work in the prison environment. Kairos sprang from the Cursillo movement and is supported by volunteers from Cursillo and those other movements that consider Cursillo as their root. Although a separate ministry, Kairos has received the blessing and encouragement of 4th Day movements such as Cursillo, National Episcopal Cursillo, Presbyterian Cursillo, Lutheran Via de Cristo, The Upper Room's Walk To Emmaus, and independently ecumenical Tres Dias. Kairos Prison Ministry is a ministry rather than a movement.

Kairos is a ministry of the church ... a ministry of the apostles whom Jesus, the Christ, has called into community and sent forth into the environment of the correctional institution. Kairos has been called the best example of the early church in existence today.

Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. is a not-for-profit corporation chartered in the State of Florida and has become known as Kairos Prison Ministry. The words, Kairos Prison Ministry, are repeated in the Kairos logo, a registered trademark. Kairos Prison Ministry authorizes chartered states to present Kairos ministries within their states, following directions contained in Kairos manuals, which are updated as specific needs arise. Kairos manuals are copyrighted. All rights are reserved.

Also, there is a group of women who minister to female family members of incarcerated men through the Kairos Outside Ministry.

Kairos Weekends consist of 40 hours on a weekend spent with 42 inmates chosen by the warden and correctional officers. Many times the forty-two participants will include those who are seemingly unlovable. Once God changes the hearts of the residents, it has been shown that they have a great influence in the environments of their institution.

Kairos Prison Ministry

Kairos of Alabama operates as a State Chapter and serves in prisons and jails through a contractual agreement with the Warden and Chaplain of each unit. At present, we are in 13 facilities across the State of Alabama. Also, there is a group of women who minister to female family members of incarcerated men through the Kairos Outside Ministry.

Kairos Weekends consist of 40 hours on a weekend spent with 42 inmates chosen by the warden and correctional officers. Many times the forty-two participants will include those who are seemingly unlovable. Once God changes the hearts of the residents, it has been shown that they have a great influence in the environments of their institution.

We form teams of Christians who become ADOC Certified Volunteers to serve at ADOC Units. When we serve we become guests of the Units and are given many privileges because we have such a positive impact on the inmates. We accept forty-two inmates per weekend, and put on two weekends per year, in each unit. The selection at each Unit of the residents who are to attend our weekends is made by the Warden and the Chaplain, with input from the Security.

Kairos encourages the selection of leader inmates, both positive and negative. Many times the forty-two participants will include those who are seemingly unlovable. Once God changes the hearts of the residents, we have found that they have a great influence in the environments of their Unit.

It is our privilege to have the opportunity to introduce them to Jesus and then show them the love he has shown us. With "God's Special Time" they have the opportunity to know the Kingdom of God.
