Bethany Prison Ministry has been sending out Christian books, Bibles, devotionals, study, resource materials as well as encouraging letters for over 40 years. So far in 2017, close to 1,000 books have gone out and 418 letters to encourage the prisoners in their faith walk. Some we believe have come to faith in Christ—others are studying in seminary, but all are hungry for more of God.

Our financial needs at this time are approximately $1,000 per month to cover operational costs, which include postage, paper and envelopes. Our workers are volunteers, the books are all donated and we have no other overhead.

What you can do:

  1. Donate financially.
  2. Donate Christian books and Bibles (see list)
  3. Volunteer


We guarantee you will be blessed. The letters we receive from prisoners around the United States (from almost every state in the union) are simply amazing and actually sometimes very challenging to our own hearts. We often see such a love for God, a commitment to study the Word and a joyful spirit that are encouraged to be the same!
