Our Mission

Through a relationship with Christian community, The Four-Seven is committed to equipping the lives of the incarcerated and their families with tools and resources that lead to transformation.

Our History

We launched in November of 2015 at Lebanon Correctional Institution with the course Building Success. It all began with three volunteers and 18 incarcerated men. God had plans in 2015 that we couldn’t even fathom.

What we believe

We believe every individual is worth fighting for, and we believe in a God of grace. That is why we are committed to running hard after the incarcerated and helping them rebuild their lives.

All it takes is one helping hand to get back up, and we want to ensure that all have the opportunity to experience the unconditional love and grace Christ has to offer.

For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23); But to each one of us, grace has been given as Christ apportioned it (Ephesians 4:7).

The importance of community

For us, it’s all about community. We experience God in amazing ways when we are willing to get vulnerable and welcome Him into our relationships.

Hear directly from some of the men who join us on the inside. They share their thoughts on the importance of The Four-Seven and the ways our programs (such as Crossroads Anywhere) share God’s hope and grace in powerful ways.
