23,000 men are incarcerated in federal prisons in Canada. This experience often becomes a turning point in their lives. They are hungry for programs that will help them transform their lives. These are some stories that have encouraged the Prison Bible Encounter Program Leadership over 3 years.
Gord's story is one of restoration and grace, that includes an experience with incarceration. His life was a model of success with a corporate executive position and church leadership until he was called to account for a situation brought on by wrong-thinking and bad choices.
Concentration: Justice (Social & Environmental)
