Kairos

Changing Hearts + Transforming Lives + Impacting the World

“I was in prison and you visited me” — Matthew 25:36

The word, Kairos, is a Greek word meaning in “God’s Special Time” or in the “Fullness of Time,” indicating an opportunity for participants and guests to reconsider their life choices. 

Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (Kairos) is a lay-led, interdenominational Christian ministry in which men and women volunteers bring Christ’s love and forgiveness to prisoners and their families.

The Kairos programs take the participants on a journey that demonstrates the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ. Kairos Prison Ministry is Christian in nature, although no religious affiliation is necessary to be a participant.

The programs involve a structured model that includes the weekend experience, followed by guests or participants gathering regularly for accountability, support, and prayer.


Called to Serve at Saint Margaret’s

A Kairos weekend is held at the Women’s Corrections Center (WWCW) in Gig Harbor and The Washington State Reformatory (WSR) in Monroe. We host 25-30 participants on a weekend, delivering a message of self-love, forgiveness, and the redeeming love of Christ. This is a revelation for many. You can tangibly see the process of lives opening to a new path.

Want to join us in this mission? Contact us here for more information or to get involved!  

If you are unable to visit the prison you can pray for the ministry team, and the guests or you can help with a monetary donation. Please indicate WCCW or WSR in your donation information.
