You are invited to attend: The Annual Business Meeting for the Madison Area Jail Ministry (MAJM). If you are unable to attend, please consider sending someone else from your congregation.

You may be asking yourself, “Why would I want to attend this meeting?”

This annual business meeting will include updates from 2018, plans for 2019, and election of Executive Board members. Come and meet Chaplain Todd Marcotte. We will cover many topics, including how to: Organize, Pray, and Promote Jail Ministry events.

Madison Area Jail Ministry is looking to fill vacancies on the Executive Board. Contact Paul Skidmore, President of MAJM, if you are interested in serving, or if you would like to recommend someone else. Also, we need your help on the following committees: Communications, Fundraising, and Liaisons.


Madison Area Jail Ministry (MAJM) has been providing spiritual care to incarcerated men and women for 50 years. Approximately 750-800 men and 80-100 women are held each day in the Dane County Jail. Each person comes to the jail with unique physical, emotional, and spiritual needs. MAJM provides spiritual care through the work of our chaplains and a network of clergy and volunteers from the entire spectrum of faith traditions.

There would not be a ministry without the partnership of the Dane County Sheriff's Department, which provides office space, a computer, and works cooperatively with MAJM as active members of the advisory board.

Madison Area Jail Ministry is fully funded through the generosity of numerous area congregations, individuals and charitable organizations.

Thank you for your support of Madison Area Jail Ministry!
