Barabbas Ministries is first and foremost a discipleship ministry that provides the necessary transitional needs and training to incarcerated men who are interested in learning about the love of Jesus Christ. The goals of Barabbas are the following:
- Deinstitutionalize the offenders through Christ-centered discipleship and the teaching of basic life skills built around the Gospel of Jesus Christ;
- Teach relapse prevention to the men and their family members;
- Curtail employment barriers through Biblical and secular instruction in employment and career training;
- Locate housing opportunities in safe, clean residential areas with timely access to public transportation and participating churches.
- Support families in being prepared for the release of a family member from incarceration.
