Ephesians 4:7

Navigating a New Path

Preparing for and experiencing life after prison can be a lonely and trying time. The “Four-Seven” is designed to assist during these times. Whether that be through preparation during incarceration, finding a job after one’s release or mentoring while navigating life’s new path, our faith-based program is focused on helping you start a new chapter in your life.

We believe through the love and grace of God, all things are possible. And because of that, our staff is determined to run hard after those in search something new in their lives.

The Branches of The Four-Seven

The Four-Seven Ministries is an organization dedicated to run hard after incarcerated individuals. Nearly 50% of those released from prison return to incarceration. We are determined to help individuals find their footing and change their path through faith-based support and guidance.

The Four-Seven provides support for incarcerated individuals, their families and those adjusting to life following their release.

We are individuals from different backgrounds who simply believe in the power of community to transform lives.

Families

Incarceration impacts many, not just those behind bars. Our ministry for Families of the Incarcerated is designed to provide those with incarcerated loved ones assistance and guidance in their times of need.

Inside Programs

What does it looks like to take communities inside prison walls to share to love and grace of Christ with others? Our inside programs are designed to create community and cultivate faith-based relationships.

Recovery Services

Addiction is something many of us have faced. Our Recovery Services team provides programming inside prison walls that also translates to one’s life outside prison.
