Prison Alliance

The What

Prison Alliance exists to glorify God by sharing His love with the incarcerated by distributing donated Bibles, Christian books, and volunteer-reviewed correspondence Bible studies throughout the world. Located in Buford, Prison Alliance’s mission is to make disciples in prisons by reaching the lost with the gospel, teaching them to be disciples of Christ, and empowering them to continue making disciples in their communities. This is achieved through the distribution of Bibles, gospel tracts, Christian literature, and spiritually edifying Bible studies, such as "Who is God?", developed by Prison Alliance. This free Bible Study that invites prisoners to begin a relationship with Christ and get connected with a discipleship program. Together with the Holy Spirit, new believers are nurtured in their faith to eventually make disciples through two other courses called "Christian Leadership" and "Disciple of Christ."

Donate Books

All it takes is one book to start someone on their path to Christ. We receive letters of gratitude from inmates every week who express how they were encouraged, challenged, and instructed by a book they read from their prison library. A Prison Alliance stamp is placed inside every cover, inviting inmates to take the next step by enrolling in a Bible study. When you donate books, Bibles, and other materials, you are giving resources that help inmates to grow in their faith. By supplying Christian books and Bibles to inmates, you are taking an active role in prison ministry.

And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
The Great Commission (Matthew 28:18-20)
