Crossroads Prison Ministries and Alpha for Prisons USA and International are excited to announce the launch of a partnership between the two organizations. Alpha and Crossroads share a passion for leading men and women in prison through the Bible to discover its life-giving story of redemption.
Lisa Blystra, President and CEO of Crossroads, says Alpha focuses on more introductory faith questions for new believers in prison, while Crossroads specializes in biblical mentorship.
“When they finish the courses that Alpha has to offer, they will be invited to pursue further exploration of their faith through the long-term discipleship that Crossroads offers. And then Crossroads will likewise promote Alpha to our respective key audiences and stakeholders.”
Alpha for Prisons brings the Alpha course – a series of interactive sessions that explore the basics of Christianity – into more than 400 prisons, jails, halfway houses, and juvenile detention facilities in the US. The Alpha course will reach a total of 900 prisons in 50 countries around the world.
