Charis Prison Ministry of Delta, Colorado is an ecumenical ministry committed to fulfilling a two-fold mission. First, to present God’s reconciling love and forgiveness in Jesus Christ to offenders at the minimum security prison in Delta, Colorado. And second, to encourage the men in their transition to becoming productive citizens.
Through a systematic, structured, Christ-centered program, the residents of DCC are given the opportunity to experience spiritual renewal and to accept God’s call to live a life of Christian witness and service to one another during their stay in the institution and beyond. Three day events are held twice annually, first in April and again in October. Learn More.
Charis Means God's Grace
Charis is the Greek word for grace, and as used in this ministry, it means God’s Grace.
“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.
The King will reply, I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”
Matthew 25:35, 36, 40
Do It For Jesus: Our service always starts with Jesus. Jesus is in us, pleading to be shared.
Do It For the Insiders: Many need to meet Jesus. Others need to renew their relationship with Jesus. All need to know outsiders who care. Through our weekends, the insiders can discover that they are loved unconditionally by God, can receive forgiveness for their sins and be given eternal life.
Do It For Yourself: We all need the opportunity to share our faith and witness with others. We all need to have a purpose for living which is larger than ourselves.
We invite you to join the Charis team, participate in a Charis weekend and leave each weekend empowered by the conviction that you serve a living God.
Do you hear God calling you?
