“Each of us is more than the worst thing we’ve ever done.”
― Bryan Stevenson, Just Mercy: A Story of Justice and Redemption
Criminal Justice and Mercy Ministries “CJAMM” has been working hard to travel to churches to thank them for supporting our ministry. If you would like us to visit your church please let us know and we would love to come.
In 2016 CJAMM was able to make 56 disciples through our Exodus House programs. Our recidivism rate for the past two years is 1.7% meaning that 98.3% of the people who graduate the program do not return to prison. At a time when Oklahoma is ranked number one for incarceration in the nation this is definitely a big achievement. USA today named our Exodus Houses one of the best transitional homes in the nation in October of 2017.
New Day Camp is for children who have at least one incarcerated parent. We have served over 2,000 children. We had 6 adult volunteers return to camp this year that were once campers.
We are teaching workshops across the state on how each church can help accept those returning home from incarceration and their families into our local churches. This has been made possible through New People New Places.
Thank you for all of your support and for making sure that we have not forgotten the least of these that are in prison and returning home from incarceration. We would love to come see each of you and share how God is truly working in our ministry.
Thank you for your support!
