"ROAD TEAMS" TAKE OUR
TO THE MENIN THE ILLINOIS' PRISONS!
On our Dads' Classes "Road Teams," we present the same Dads' Classes we have weekly in many local County Jails, but we present them in a 2-Day Seminar. We visit Prisons, where weekly classes simply are not an option for us. Our purpose is to:
Bring the Gospel to the inmates in the context of fatherhood,
Spark an interest in the men to become better Dads, break the generational cycle of crime, reduce recidivism, and
Spark an interest in the Prison Staff to welcome the year-long Malachi Dads' Program.
"Road Team" members lead small-group discussions between the classes, and may lead classes (your choice). We pay our own expenses (travel, motel & some meals). Class materials are provided.
Dave Haidle (Road Team member): "The majority of men in prison are fathers, and contrary to what many might think, these men are eager to be good fathers to their children. Our communities can only benefit from these men becoming better fathers. I can't think of a better investment of time than to be teaching eager men about God's perspective on fathering. It is challenging, humbling and rewarding; plus you get to know other brothers in Christ on a deeper level as you soldier together."
