What is Kairos? (Pronounced "Ki - Ros" (rhymes with "high dose") and means "God's Special Time")

Kairos is a Christian, lay-led, ecumenical, volunteer, international prison ministry in which men and women volunteers bring Christ's love and forgiveness to incarcerated individuals and to their families. Kairos consists of three programs: the Men's and Women's Ministry, begun in 1976, Kairos Outside, begun in 1991, and Kairos Torch, begun in 1997.


The Men's and Women's Kairos Inside Prison Ministry addresses the spiritual needs of prisoners. Kairos volunteers go into prisons in teams of 30 to 40 to pray, share the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, share meals, and fellowship with the incarcerated on a one-to-one basis. The first visit is a three-day event, during which time the team teaches a short introductory course on Christianity. Subsequent visits are monthly 2 hour evening reunions with the prisoners which occur over a twelve-month period as well as a weekly meeting with the inmates for "Prayer and Share".




Kairos Outside provides spiritual healing to families of the incarcerated who often feel that they too are "doing time." Spouses, parents, and other relatives of prisoners meet with teams of Kairos volunteers to share their faith and gain strength from Christian community.



 


Kairos Torch provides a ministry to youthful offenders which is the most rapidly growing segment of the prison system. This branch of Kairos has developed due to the fact that, to be successful, ministry to our youth (13 to 19 years of age) needs to have a very different tone than our methods directed toward adult offenders.
