Training Prison Chaplains in Rural Nigeria

"I was in prison, and you visited me..."

In Nigeria, Good News Jail & Prison Ministry is sharing Jesus with men and women behind bars. The ministry has a mission to help those in prison become disciples of Christ now, and then equip them for leadership upon their release.

Good News also trains rural pastors and laypeople for effective holistic ministry outside the prison walls, particularly focusing on the family members of people in prison.

Good News’ work is already bearing eternal fruit. Forty-year-old Samuel was sentenced to five years in prison. He despised the church. But on his birthday, a fellow inmate persuaded him to join a worship service, and he gave himself to Christ. In addition to healing those with bitterness like Samuel, Good News chaplains and volunteers help inmates overcome trauma and other mental health issues.

Because of you…

Your generosity provided $2,550 to cover the cost of 150 Africa Study Bibles for Good News Jail & Prison Ministry! Now, 150 leaders and volunteers in Akwa Ibom State, Nigeria, have been equipped with the resources they need to shepherd the flocks that God has entrusted into their care.

After the Africa Study Bibles were distributed, Good News Jail & Prison Ministry held pastors’ seminars to train chaplains how to use the Africa Study Bible and minister to local churches in their outreach to prisons. As a result, thousands of lives have been impacted for Christ. Thank you!


This project is fully funded. To find out how you can partner with Oasis to support more pastors, click here.
