Madison Area Jail Ministry

a ministry of presence

We have a bookkeeping position open. If you know someone who has a heart for jail ministry and is looking for a few extra hours of work, please send them our way.

Ministry Update:

Light at the end of a long tunnel

We have received word that phase one of bringing our ministry volunteers back into the jail will begin by the first week of July. Pastoral care, which has continued throughout the pandemic, will be augmented by our volunteer chaplain assistants. We also look forward to their return as well as the return of Bible studies and other religious programs.

Our Friends of the Jail Ministry group is active and growing. They are MAJM’s ambassadors who help tell our story and represent us in the community. Group members have also responded to specific ministry needs and met them in imaginative ways.

"God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. We want each of you to show this same diligence to the very end, so that what you hope for may be fully realized." Hebrews 6:10-11 (NIV)

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

Your donation helps those incarcerated in the Dane County Jail to know that they are not forgotten, they matter, and they are in our thoughts and prayers. Thank you!
