Our whole church is involved in a ministry that works for everyone because it was designed to help them get involved with people who need ministry and need help. We want to be sure that we are helping as many people as we can, and that is why we all as a church got together to start using Securus when we could. We have been using it ever since, and it is a very easy thing to manage. I thought that I would have to do a lot more work to explain to everyone how it works, but Securus really did create the most functional app possible.
Their app gives us a video feed into the jail where we can see who we are working with, and we have actually assigned certain people to work with certain other people. We are trying to build relationships, and we have even welcomed some inmates into our church once they have gotten out. We are not only helping to build people up, but we are able to see them so that they know that they have a partner in what we are doing. I am very pleased with the app I found from PR Newswire, and I think everyone in the church loves it, too.
I wanted to be sure that I could do something that would work well as a prison ministry, but I did not want to do something that was too impersonal. I made it so that we could all use Securus America app to talk to the inmates, and now some of the inmates that we have been working with are part of the church family and doing the same thing. We wanted to make a difference in their lives, and I am really pleased with the way that we have impacted everyone in our program.
