Kairos is an interdenominational Christian ministry whose programs were designed to be presented in Medium and Maximum Security sections of men’s and women’s correctional institutions, juvenile institutions, and to the outside families of prisoners. The ministry is conducted,in cooperation with the chaplains and management of correctionalinstitutions, by volunteer teams of laity and clergy who are selected, trained and certified by area governing bodies of Kairos and approved by correctional institutions as citizen volunteers.
KAIROS PRISON MINISTRY volunteers are drawn from a broad range of inter- denominational churches. KAlROS volunteers have experience in renewal movements within their churches which focus on small group dynamics, share and prayer groups, personal witness and vulnerability in Christian community. In South Africa, Kairos is strongly supported by volunteers from The Upper Room’s Walk To Emmaus.
KAlROS PRISON MINISTRY INTERNATIONAL, INC. is the parent organisation of a body of ministries addressing the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women and children, to their families and to those who work in the prison environment.
