Crossroads Prison Ministries Australia
Crossroads Prison Ministries is all about the good news of Jesus. We believe that it is only Jesus who breaks the chains of the prisoner and brings true freedom to all who come to him, regardless of where they are or have been. We also believe that everyone needs to hear this good news, ‘for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.’ (Romans 3:23). Jesus tells those who believe in him to ‘go and make disciples of all people’, including people in prison.
Crossroads is uniquely placed to help churches and their members reach those in prison with the good news of Jesus, through teaching and mentoring, pastoral care, and prayer; as we partner with you to mentor and equip prisoners for a life transformed by and for Jesus.
You can find out more about us here.
To date Crossroads Prison Ministries has introduced more than 20,000 students across Australia and the South Pacific to the Gospel of Jesus.
But the mission is far from over, and there are more people in prison waiting for a mentor than we can currently serve.
So we’d love to partner with you in serving them.
You can get involved in four ways:
Mentors are at the heart of the ministry here at Crossroads.
Mentors exchange letters with students, mark lessons, provide encouragement to students, and pray for students. Through these exchanges mentors invest in student’s lives as they study God’s Word and apply Biblical truths to their lives.
You can find out more about mentoring, or sign up as a mentor here.
Existing mentors should head over to our Mentor Hub for all mentoring activities.
Sign up a Student
You can sign them up here.
Every student who is signed up to Crossroads correspondence classes will receive a free NIV Bible with their introductory letter.
You will need to know the student’s name, MIN number and location.
If you are able to partner with us financially, you can sign up to make regular direct debits, or to make a one off donation here.
We believe that we have a God who answers the cries of his people.
We are ever-grateful for the faithful prayers of our partners.
If you are interested in receiving our regular prayer updates you can sign here.
