Volunteer Opportunities

Serve. We have opportunities available in the jail and at home for individuals interested in joining us in ministry. Please contact for more information on requirements, training, and needs.

Represent. Partner with FMM by sharing our story at your local church. Church support is very important, both for our ministry and for departing inmates seeking to make a new life in Jesus' name. We need people like you to connect us with churches across the county.

Pray. Most importantly, lift up the chaplain and volunteers in prayer. Pray for inmates who are lost and seeking redemption. With your help, we can continue to touch lives in the jail.
