Volunteer Opportunities

Represent. FMM Ionia County needs support from local churches around the county to sustain the ministry inside the jail. Would you consider sharing the FMM story with your pastor, mission board, and church family? 

Pray. Most importantly, we need your prayer for our ministry. Pray for both our chaplain and volunteers as they serve and also for the inmates to have open hearts to receive the gospel!

Serve. It takes very special people to step into the jail and serve inmates. If you feel the Lord calling you to this service, please contact Chaplain Frank Lattimore at the phone number and email above.
