Matthew 25: 35-36 - 36,40b

"For I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger and you took Me in; I was naked and you clothed Me; I was sick and you visited Me; I was in prison and you came to Me. Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.’"

What Scripture Says

Our crusades consist of taking teams of local believers to evangelize behind prison walls through events. We focus on presenting the gospel and leading inmates to faith in Jesus Christ.

Promised Land Prison Ministries

Students learn skills, such as riding or caring for horses.  Horsemanship skills are the primary objective, however, life lessons and other therapeutic benefits may be gained through learning the skills of being with horses.

Promised Land Equine Ministries

We are passionate about providing inmates an opportunity to gain knowledge of the word of God. We offer a correspondence course, where students will take a 6-week class on fundamental Christianity. Upon graduation, they will receive a diploma and study Bible.

Our Partners in Ministry

Spartanburg County Detention Facility

Last week I was preaching in the Spartanburg County Jail and a man came up to me asking if I remembered him.  I replied he looked familiar. He said he was with me while I was incarcerated at Coleman in 1998. He remembered how I was the chaplain's clerk and how I studied all the time. He has been in and out of jail his whole life. He said if God did this for me he wanted Jesus, another soul saved by the Grace of our Lord.  God is at work all around us. Praise the Lord!

Cherokee County Jail

Approximately 30 to 40 men were saved. At the end I noticed one man on the side and I asked him if he had received a second piece of candy. He stated that he did not. I remembered that I had dropped a piece on the floor in C-Max and put it in my top pocket.  I reached into my pocket pulled out the last piece and tossed it to the man. Everyone stood up and clapped and praised the Lord. On my way out I asked the Guard if he knew the Lord. His reply was yes but he never saw anything like this. I am just amazed to see how our Lord works behind prison walls. He truly does “Proclaim Freedom to the Captives”. 

Cherokee County Law Enforcement Center 

As I explained the Promise of Salvation he began to cry and asked me how he could be saved, he wanted what I had.  He prayed to receive Christ as his savior and he agreed to give me his Koran in exchange for a Holy Bible. One of the jail officers heard my testimony over the security system stopped me on my way out. He asked me how I was able to convert this man. My response was that I had nothing to do with it. I was just the man who was sent. We both praised the Lord as the He saved another lost soul.
