Could you please help us with the costs of the 'DADS' CLASSES?"
Actually, they're very inexpensive.
The "ROAD TEAM" members pick up the bulk of the costs.
Each "ROAD TEAM" member puts out about $150 - $200 for each trip to each prison.
The ministry's costs per inmate are only about $1.50
THAT'S RIGHT - $1.50 per inmate covers the costs of the class materials he receives, plus his Certificate of Completion.
Plus, we give each inmate 2 or 3 books
(which have all been donated, so we have no costs for them either).
So, with each Prison Seminar having about
60 inmates in attendance, with a donation of $90, you could cover the "per inmate" cost for a whole seminar!
THAT'S RIGHT - $90 covers the materials' cost for a whole seminar!
If donations are received in excess of the amount actually used for "Dads' Classes" materials,
(and Chaplain Tom asks that you please pray that happens)
the "overage" will be responsibly used toward other legitimate ministry expenses.

"ROAD TEAMS" TAKE OUR
TO THE MENIN THE ILLINOIS PRISONS!
Men are coming to the "Dads' Classes" who would NEVER come to a Bible Study or a church service. They come even when the "Dads' Classes" are advertised as BIBLE-BASED & CHRIST-CENTERED. These men don't want their kids to follow in their footsteps! Many of these men are hearing the Gospel for the first time in their lives!
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.
We need more Dads for each of these dates!
