We are glad that you are considering how you might be able to support Yokefellow Prison Ministry! There are several ways that you can be involved in what Yokefellow Prison Ministry is doing across the state of North Carolina!
PRAY – The most important way to support Yokefellow is through your prayers. Please pray for the ministry, including the Volunteers, Local Coordinators, Board of Directors, and Staff as well as the inmates and prisons they serve. Pray for the spiritual growth of everyone affiliated with Yokefellow and that the ministry will operate in unity as all follow where God leads.
VOLUNTEER – Currently, Yokefellow only serves 2/3 of North Carolina’s prisons. In order for Yokefellow Prison Ministry to be able to achieve our vision of serving all of the correctional facilities in North Carolina and to continue branching out to include Residential Reentry and Returning Citizens, Yokefellow needs more volunteers. Prayerfully consider joining us in ministering to inmates in a prison near you.
