Mission Statement

Yokefellow Prison Ministry of North Carolina, Inc., (YPMNC), is an interdenominational, interracial, lay-clergy ministry which helps prison inmates and volunteers grow and mature in all areas of life. YPMNC brings outside Christian volunteers into the prison on a weekly basis to meet with inmates in-groups designed to promote spiritual growth and maturity. Currently, YPMNC is active in 57 of the 91 North Carolina prisons ministering to inmates through the efforts of 500 volunteers.YPMNC's philosophy stresses that people's lives are changed through committed relationships; therefore, the YPMNC ministries are designed to make the redemptive love of Christ known through trust and care built by stable ongoing relationships.While many ministeries and church organizations are willing to provide worship services, revivals and Bible studies for prisoners, YPMNC uniquely gives an inmate the opportunity to share the pain, loneliness and isolation she/he is feeling with a caring christian volunteer. First and foremost, the volunteer listens. Then together the inmate and volunteer work to sort out the inmate's problems and find hope and courage through their Christian fellowship.


Volunteers are needed relative to fund raising, ministering to North Carolina prison inmates on a weekly basis and in the development and maintenance of a Web Site.

Would you recommend Yokefellow Prison Ministry of North Carolina, Inc.?

by Pat F. from Winston-Salem, NC (Administrator for this Organization) (January 31, 2009)
This volunteer activity can become very addicitive due to the rewards returned. Because it is a LISTENING ministry you are not required to be an expert or an advisor with a pocket full of answers. Your rewards as a good listener will uplift you in so many ways you would not believe possible ! Yes you are required to travel to and enter a local prison. To sit down with a small table group of inmates who have most likely walked a different path in life from you. Perhaps less fortunate than you at this time. To listen to persons seeking paths to a better life and who are desprately in need of solid encouragement based upon our Christian experience. No preaching, No teaching just listening and sharing an understanding of life challenges and a hope for a better tomorrow ! I believe you would be surprised how much reward comes from an experience such as this ! Try it , You could well become addicted as I have !
