About Crossroads

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.

Get Involved

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:

Mentoring

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

Do you know someone in prison who would benefit from receiving Bible training through Crossroads?

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.

Financial Partner

Crossroads is a non-denominational charity, registered with ACNC. All of our funding comes entirely from the generosity of our financial partners, both individuals and churches.

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.

Prayer Partner

Prayer is critical to the success of Crossroads ministry.

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.

Important announcement from the Committee

Crossroads has been experiencing an increasingly difficult financial position over the past six months, and unfortunately we now find ourselves in a position where we are no longer able to afford to employ Mike Eastman as our Director.

 

This has been a difficult decision, made with heavy hearts, as Mike’s leadership has resulted in a number of wonderful initiatives commencing, and sizeable growth in our offshore student numbers.

 

The Committee wish to place on record our thanks to Mike for his wonderful leadership over the past 20 months, and to make clear that this decision is in no way a reflection on the character or actions of Mike, which have always been above reproach.

 

God’s work continues though, and our team of volunteers at the office are still hard at work processing lessons, and answering your calls.

 

We also urgently need funding to continue the work of Crossroads, so if you are able to partner with us and donate additional funds at this time you can do so here.

 

The Committee have released a letter to our supporters explaining this decision in more detail, and that can be found here.

 

Thank you for your continuing support in prayer, donations, and through your mentoring of our students.

 

We trust in God’s sovereignty to continue His work in the prisons throughout Australia and the region.
