Yokefellow Prison Ministry of North Carolina is an inter-denominational, interracial Christian ministry of reconciliation begun in 1969, which includes both lay and clergy, male and female. It is founded on the idea that people’s lives are changed through committed relationships.
The ministry is conducted by trained volunteers who lead weekly meetings of small groups inside our correctional institutions. Yokefellow is not focused on worship, preaching, teaching, counseling, or Bible study, but is a ministry of listening, sharing, caring, encouragement and support provided by community volunteers from the “outside” yoked in fellowship with those on the “inside” through the weekly small group meetings.
The Biblical foundation of our commitment is the invitation by Christ our Lord in the Gospel of Matthew 11:29-30:
