1 John 4:4 (KJV)  You are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.

 
 

Welcome to Greater Is He ministry!


 

Only their faith can set them free from the bondage of this world, their addictions, crime, broken spirits, and destructive relationships. 

When inmates are released from prison, statistics show that 75% of them will return.  This is a staggering probability, and it shows that current methods of release & re-entry need to be re-examined.  This is where faith comes into play.  When prisoners commit their life to God and MAINTAIN that faith for a year after release, that statistic is turned on its head --- 80% will successfully alter their lifestyle and avoid returning to prison.

 

We supply for the basic needs of women on parole: food, shelter, clothing, grooming items, and safety.  With these provisions, the women won't have to resort to crime to meet their basic needs. 

Also, knowing that various unknown people have come together to donate their resources and time to give these women a second chance helps affirm their worth as children of God & human beings.

 

Beyond the needs of the body, we provide for needs of the soul.  We will provide individual and group bible studies to strengthen their faith & relationship with God, a mentor for personal reflection & growth,  require membership to a local church, and teach them new life skills to cope with whatever issues the world may bring.  As the women participate, grow & mature in God, and orient to their new lifestyle, they will move through various levels of independence within the program.
