A letter to Pastors:

Rahab saved herself and her family by her faith. She went on to become the great great-grandmother of David and, eventually, an ancestor of the Messiah. But she never lost the stigma of her sin. Down through history, she was still called “Rahab the Harlot.”

Stigma is an issue every convict released from prison faces. Some are released only to return to their old ways and, eventually, to prison.

Others find Christ as their Savior while in prison. They grow in His grace through correspondence courses, chapel services, dorm Bible studies, and faith-based programs that reach into the prison to help them. But when they are released back into society, they will face rejection, often by the very people who are best equipped to understand that a sinner can be saved—and changed—by grace.

Philemon Fellowship International exists to help released prisoners, who are serious about the Lord, find local church fellowships that will keep them accountable and help them become useful citizens and effective Christians. We also desire to help the church reach into prisons through building relationships with prisoners and providing Bibles and other materials to the prisons.

Would you join us in this work? This is not a request for money, though support is appreciated. Rather, we are looking for churches willing to provide compassionate fellowship, mature discipleship, and close accountability to these “trophies of God’s grace.” Please pray about how Philemon Fellowship International can become a part of your ministry and let us know if we can add your church to our mailing list.

“As you have done it unto these, the least of my brethren, you have done it unto me.”
