On June 4 & 5 - We're scheduled to present the "Dads' Classes" 2-Day Seminar in the Menard Medium Security Unit. Right now, we have only one Dad involved (Chaplain Tom). We need four or five more Dads!
Class materials & training provided!
Then, on July 2 & 3, we're schedule in the East Moline Prison. Right now, we have only two Dads involved. We need three or four more Dads!
"Dads' Classes" are making a difference!
From an inmate: "The last thing I wanted to hear was another person talking about God, or Jesus, or the Bible. I went to your Dads' Class, and couldn't wait to go to my second one! Then, unexpectedly, I was released. Chaplain Tom, I need to go to the rest of the Dads' Classes!"(I directed him to the Dads' Classes we offer on Thursday evenings at Wayside Cross in Aurora.)
"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 & training are provided.
We also need Dads for these other dates!
