Every Tuesday, 7 - 9 PM, our Grading Team meets at Redeemer Fellowship Church in St. Charles, to grade Bible Lessons completed by inmates. We need more Graders! Grading Keys & Training are provided. Just show up! Make a difference!
Every 3rd Saturday of the month, we visit cell-to-cell in Stateville's NRC Unit. These men are locked-down 23 hours/day, with no TV, no radio, no programs. We take the inmates literature & pray with them. You must be 18 or older, with no felony record, and security-cleared in advance. You may only participate once every three months.

WE HAVE A FRESH OPPORTUNITY TO REALLY IMPACT THE MEN IN 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,
Ignite an interest in the men to become better Dads, break the generational cycle of crime, reduce recidivism, and
Ignite 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. You have the choice to lead one of the classes.
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."
WE NEED MEN TO JOIN OUR "ROAD TEAMS!"
(Must be 18 or older, no felony record, Pastor's recommendation)
