Allendale Correctional Worship Center
Friday, July 21, 2017
ACWC Representative:

“One of the things we understand after doing time is that the hardest thing to find in prison is a quiet place where you can study, where you can read, meditate. Having a worship center will give us that place where we can all grow together.”

Operation Behind Bars Representative:

“You’re not just investing in a building, you’re investing in helping to transform inmates lives. Building a worship center would create a spiritual, positive and productive environment within the prison.”

Kairos Prison Ministry Representative:

“Having this worship center will bring a lot of people together…right now we are scattered in different places…being in a gym doesn’t give you that feeling that God is there.”

Chaplain's Clerk:

“You’re not just investing in a building, you’re investing in helping to transform inmates lives. Building a worship center would create a spiritual, positive and productive environment within the prison.”

Buddhist Representative:

Jewish Representative:

Rastafarian Representative:

“For people seeking change in their life it is imperative to have an environment that is conducive to that change…the worship center will be a blessing to everybody on Allendale’s yard.”

Roman Catholic Representative:

“A dedicated worship center will be a blessing for all who will use it…For years we’ve had no set place to meet. We have to worship and study in a classroom in the gym. This can be difficult with a lively basketball game going on or a loud group in the next room…however it does help with patience and humility.”

House of Yahweh Representative:

“We really need you at this time. We have guys who are serious about their religious programs and consequently we don’t have space to put them in…”

Sound Technician:

““Having a worship center will give all who come in to bring the Word, a more controlled environment where we will be able to focus more with less distractions…

Character Housing Unit (CHU) Coordinator:

“We believe that the worship center will bring all faiths together under one roof.

JumpStart Ministry Representative:

“God has been opening so many doors at Allendale. With access to a functioning worship center the growth will be limitless. I’m really excited to see God continue to move throughout this institution.”

Native American Representative:

“…we could gather in one place to have our worship or classes. When we have to meet in the gym it’s either hot, hot in the summer or chilly in the winter. It’s a very much needed project.”

Choir Director:

“I’ve had the privilege to serve at different institutions….I think it will make all the difference for guys to have their own place to worship. We really need this and look forward to having it.
