Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
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.
