About Prison Ministry (Kairos Inside, Women)
We serve incarcerated women at North Carolina Correctional Institution for Women (NCCIW) through Kairos Prison Ministry. The mission of Kairos is to share the transforming love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their community.
Kairos Inside is composed of well-trained volunteer teams of women from the communities surrounding the institution that present an introductory 3-day weekend, described as a short course in Christianity. This interdenominational team of volunteers – both clergy and lay persons – works in cooperation with the Chaplain who carefully selects up to 42 inmate leaders to attend. Well organized follow-up is part of this program.
