Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. (Kairos) is a Christian faith based ministry which addresses the spiritual needs of incarcerated men, women, youth, and their families. By sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, Kairos hopes to change hearts, transform lives and impact the world. Kairos sprang from the Cursillo movement and is supported by volunteers from the 4th Day movements such as Cursillo, National Episcopal Cursillo, Presbyterian Cursillo, Lutheran Via de Cristo, The Upper Room’s Walk To Emmaus, and independently ecumenical Tres Dias as well as volunteers from independent and non-denominational churches. As a ministry, Kairos embraces a diverse group of volunteers working together to fulfill Christ’s call to action in Matthew 25:36.
Kairos is a ministry of the church … a ministry of the apostles whom Jesus, the Christ, has called into community and sent forth into the environment of the correctional institution. Kairos has been called the best example of the early church in existence today.

Spouses, parents and relatives of the incarcerated often “do time” right along with their loved ones. It is important for them to know that they are not alone and that there is a Christian community that cares. KAIROS OUTSIDE is designed to support the families of incarcerated men, women and juveniles. Any adult female family member whose life has been impacted by the incarceration of a loved one is eligible to attend a Kairos Outside weekend.
The purpose of the Kairos Outside program is to exhibit God’s grace and love through Christian support for women who have loved ones who are or who have been incarcerated.
