This ministry, operating at the Henderson County Detention Center, serves the persons incarcerated at the facility.  The maximum population is 230 people with more than 200 inmates there at any one time. About 25% of the population is female. About half of the inmates are in a “lock down” situation 22-23 hours a day.

The Blue Ridge Prison Ministry strives to leave a lasting, positive influence on those ministered to by helping identify the deep rooted needs that lead to destructive behavior and by providing biblical and ethical solutions to break the cycle.  This is done through one to one lay counseling, providing group Bible studies, a library, and video materials, etc.  A new program for the ministry is a transitional house for women located in Saluda.

The agency is a non-profit interdenominational ministry.  They do not receive funding from State, County, or Federal entities.  Volunteers are needed and training is provided.  In addition to monetary support from the Trinity budget, we have supplied Bibles from an endowment fund.
