Department of Corrections Secretary Michael Moore on Wednesday will formalize an agreement with Kairos Prison Ministries to minister in Florida's correctional institutions.
Kairos is an interdenominational Christian ministry whose programs are presented in state and federal men's and women's correctional institutions in the U.S. The ministry is conducted in cooperation with the chaplains of correctional institutions. The Kairos ministry focuses on small group dynamics, share-and-prayer groups, personal witness and vulnerability in the Christian community. The purpose of Kairos is to establish strong Christian communities among the populations of correctional institutions. These groups are to meet weekly to share their lives on a deep spiritual level and to pray for one another, for other residents, and for staff in the institutions.
"This agreement is yet another example of how public/private partnerships can work to enhance public services," Moore said. "We have a strong commitment to provide Florida's inmates an array of transition programs to help them succeed when they get out of prison. For those inmates who are motivated to improve their lives, Kairos Ministries can make a tremendous difference."
The agreement will be signed at the Department of Corrections, 2601 Blair Stone Road, Tallahassee, on Wednesday, October 30, 3:30 p.m.
