ELTV: Pt.3-3 Chicagoland Prison Outreach

Two Representatives from CPO came on our program to share about the ministry and what lead them to be involved. One of our guests served time behind bars as well. He shares his story of transformation.

CPO ministers to men and women in the Cook County Jail, Cook County Sheriff’s Boot Camp, Stateville Department of Corrections, and at our Career Center in Roseland. Christian worship services, discipleship classes, individual counseling, vocational training, and job preparation are among the services provided to inmates and participants at these facilities.

CPO’s Outreach Christian School provides Christ centered education to the incarcerated at the jail and educational opportunities for ex-offenders after release. Presently we are working with Roosevelt University in a special program for military veterans who are incarcerated.

The Post Prison Ministry for those who have been released serves primarily to provide mentoring and accountability, assisting them in finding fellowship in a local church, vocational training, networking with the local Christian community to seek employment and housing and/or to receive rehab and recovery for alcoholism and drug addiction.

Our Angels of Hope ministry historically focused on helping those who are in need at Christmas and Thanksgiving. A much newer facet of this ministry is that we now train area churches to call on families of detainees to provide them support and to prepare them to be a good Christian home for the detainee to return to after release. Presently 4 churches are trained. 1st Reformed of South Holland serves as a distribution hub for food which is then distributed to these families according to their need. Several churches have had food drives in support of this ministry.

Rhoda fellowship is a Women’s Bible study conducted at our Roseland facility each week for women who have a loved one who is incarcerated.

The goal is to bring the love of Christ into the lives of these men and women in a tangible way, and directly introduce them to Him through scripture and prayer.

Prison Outreach in Kompong Cham Province


Sponsored by Russey Keo Baptist Church
Assisted by Australian Mission Team
In Partnership with CCAMS
January 1, 2014

On New Year’s Day, Pastor Kakada Toun led a delegation of Christians to celebrate Christmas with inmates at Trawpeh’ng Tlawng C-3 Prison in Kompong Cham province. This delegation was made up of the youth group from Russey Keo Baptist Church, a visiting mission team from Australia, and students from Cambodian Christian Arts Ministry School (CCAMS). All of these people had to wake up in the wee hours of the morning to travel 5 hours from Phnom Penh, often on bumpy roads, to get to the prison, share their presentations, and then repeat the same trip back again!

During the program, Pastor Kakada thanked everyone in the delegation who had sacrificed to make this event possible, especially mentioning the anonymous Cambodian Christian refugees living in Australia, Singapore and the United States, who had made generous financial donations.

The Russey Keo youth group performed a dance to a song telling the Christmas story, followed by a drama showing the spiritual warfare in the heavens, as God’s angels protected the newborn Son of God from King Herod’s attempts to murder Him. Students from Cambodian Christian Arts Ministry School performed two dances, “Proclamation Drum Dance,” that calls all people everywhere to receive God’s Christmas gift of the birth of His Son Jesus Christ, and “The New Covenant in My Blood,” that describes Christ’s sacrifice on the cross to pay for the sins of the world. A member of the visiting mission team from Australia preached an evangelistic message, and gift boxes of food and personal supplies were distributed to the prisoners by the mission team.

Inmates who had been at the prison for a long time were allowed to come out of their cells to view the presentations, seated inside a fenced courtyard. Newer inmates watched it from the barred windows of their cells. A few prisoners soon to be released from jail were allowed to come outside the courtyard fence into another enclosed area to join a music ensemble providing music for the worship songs. After each song, dance, drama, or message, prisoners in all three groups clapped enthusiastically, especially whenever John, the youngest dancer on the CCAMS team, performed a solo!

Pastor Kakada has been sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ at this prison for the past six years. Most of the inmates who were allowed to come out of their cells have already believed in Jesus and are attending regular discipleship classes while still in prison. Some of those prisoners spoke personal words to our students, encouraging them to follow Jesus faithfully, not committing crimes like they had done, which condemned them to long prison sentences.

Pastor Kakada reminded the prisoners that, while living on this earth, one’s body may be locked in a prison to pay for one’s sinful deeds, but by confessing one’s sins and believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, one’s soul may be forgiven and set free both now and forever! He asked those who wanted to receive Jesus as their Savior to stand up or raise their hands. Most of the prisoners seated in the prison courtyard were already Christians. However, many voices began crying out from the barred windows on the second floor of the prison, saying “We want to receive Jesus!” So Pastor Kakada led them to pray to the Lord Jesus Christ, as they repeated after him sentence by sentence. When the pastor asked how many of them had prayed, they reported, “A lot of us!”

During the closing song, the hands of those prisoners who were still locked in their cells reached out through the bars of the windows, waving in time with the music, along with the prisoners clapping and waving in the courtyard.

Then as the visitors filed by the courtyard fence on their way out of the prison, the grateful prisoners reached their hands through the barbed wire to shake hands with them and speak words of thanks.

Please pray for God to continue blessing C-3 prison, Russey Keo Baptist Church, Cambodian Christian Arts Ministry School, the Australian Mission Team, and the many donors and mission volunteers from around the world who help support such outreaches!

The Significance of Art Integration within the Prison Environment

Throughout my undergraduate career at The Ohio State University I have been fascinated in how art co-exists with empowerment and healing especially within the underserved and stigmatized groups in our community. Specifically, I found myself intrigued by women in prison. The structure of the prison system inherently suppresses the sense of humanness and self-worth as prisoners are technically considered state property. Two major problems for incarcerated women include “the process of prisonization” and recidivism after being released.
The process of prisonization is the idea that inmates are socialized into and accept the subculture and criminal values that emerge within a prison environment. This is problematic because it reinforces negative and unproductive ideas and behaviors. Recidivism refers to criminal acts that result in the re-conviction, re-arrests or re-incarceration of released prisoners. Many times this occurs due to a lack of job opportunities. Additional factors that contribute to recidivism are inactivity and a limited idea of positive and constructive communities to connect with which results in people returning to previous lifestyle habits. Therefore, my question is how can the arts be used in a manner that shifts this environment from one that perpetuates old habits to one that presents new and exciting options for engaging with the world and oneself?
It is my firm belief that creativity is a powerful aspect of the human experience that gives individuals a sense of hope. Additionally, it also connects people to their identity as human beings. Having learned and gained this understanding, I designed an interdisciplinary arts program within Franklin Medical Center, the local Columbus correctional facility. Continually aspiring to create an encouraging and non- judgmental space for the women to learn, my arts program aims to teach the women how to collaborate and explore various cultural dance forms, visual art forms, and meditative movement practice which inherently promoted themes such as self–respect, self–esteem, stress management, community, positive touch and the celebration of the female body. My hope is that by propagating these ideas through the arts a new environment is formed which creates a positive impact for their present situation and futures.

Judge William L. Dawson is the administrative and presiding Judge of the East Cleveland Municipal Court in East Cleveland, Ohio. Judge Dawson was born in the city of East Cleveland, attended all the schools and then returned with purpose and passion as its Judge. Judge Dawson is married with two beautiful children. Prior to becoming a Judge, Judge Dawson practiced criminal defense in Ohio’s Municipal and State Courts, The Ohio Supreme Court, The United States District Court for The Northern & Southern District of Ohio and The United States Court of Appeals in the Sixth Circuit. As an attorney, he handled cases ranging from traffic violations to murder. Judge Dawson experienced and survived the same temptations and obstacles that exists in the inner cities across America. In order to reach, educate and inspire the community, Judge Dawson authored “The Legal Matrix, How the system is controlling your life” and its companion workbook. His second book, “99 Problems..How Your Failures, Flops & Flaws Can Lead to Your Greatness” aims to further inspire this generation to overcome their obstacles. His latest book, “The Cycle Breaker,” is a gripping story of five men who made mistakes that brought them face to face with the legal system. Before they face their fate, they are sent to a secret camp to learn the tools of transformation and success. Additionally, Judge Dawson creates workbooks, educational manuals and programs that are taught in his Court, organizations and area high schools. Judge Dawson is a respected speaker in the areas of Domestic Violence, Emotional Intelligence and Leadership. Judge Dawson is also on the Ohio Supreme Court Commission on Continuing Legal Education.

For the last five years Judge Dawson has been running his court with a mission to help positively transform lives and empower greatness. To achieve that goal Judge Dawson conducts programs on “Avoiding Negative Interaction with the Police,” “Emotional Intelligence” and now, “Yoga.” As a 200 hour RYT, Judge Dawson now teaches yoga to offenders right in the Courtroom where the offenders were sentenced. Judge Dawson’s philosophy is that Yoga is a life changing practice. “I have been able to reach a common ground with people in my Courtroom by exposing them to Yoga.” To make sure he reaches as many people as possible, Judge Dawson starts every court session by asking the people in his courtroom to stand and take three deep breathes before starting the proceedings. Judge Dawson calls his movement of change “Cycle Breakers!” www.CycleBreakerAcademy.com

Intimidating Onitsha prison outreach video is out now. Just share so God will touch the needed people to bring Nigerian government to order

Just look at the Onitsha prison video with 760 people locked up, but less than 170 people were allowed to be part of the revival. Very sad one, they are all locked 🔒 out the salvation and deny their right to exist. Join me to share this very video as we also remember them in prayer.
