Hello,

I am Brent Young, a volunteer Chaplain at Bledsoe County Correction Complex, and I have been blessed to have an incredible opportunity which I would like to invite you to become a part of by supporting my ministry.For those of you who might not know, Bledsoe County at BCCX is the classification unit for the entire state of Tennessee, meaning that every person that is sent to prison will come across my path. In the mornings, I work in the classification area doing intake forms. It is during this time I have my first opportunity to minister to the inmates. After they fill out their forms, I interview them. They are then given a Bible and a welcome packet (consisting of a pen, notepad, Our Daily Bread, Beside the Still Waters, Loaves and Fishes, 4-5 tracts, a calendar, and 2 envelopes). This serves as the first “in road” to building trust about what you are there to say and do. This is also one of the areas where the need for assistance arises – donations are needed to obtain supplies. The same is true of the Christian reading materials that are given to the inmates.

After finishing the intakes, the next opportunity to minister is in the pods, one on one. This is where I really have the opportunity to dig into God’s word and truly lead and counsel inmates. This is truly the heart of prison ministry – being able to go to those locked up, meet them where they are, and let them know even while they are in prison, and yet sinners, Christ died for them; that he loves them, and that he is calling them to salivation. Having this opportunity to minister to those that are in need is a true blessing. Following up on time of ministering, after I counsel and pray with them, they are given the opportunity to take a Bible study so that they can begin to personally dig into God’s word and have something to guide them. As they are working on and finishing the Bible studies, I am there to offer any help that I might be able to. Again, the Bible studies are where costs arise.

Thank you all for your love, prayers, and support for me as I continue to minister God’s word to the men and women who are incarcerated in prison. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance to you or the church.
