In 2010, Simple Acts Ministry played a strategic role in helping to open the first faith based dorm at Montford. The dorm houses 50 prisoners who have been screened by the prison chaplain and have agreed to follow a strict set of rules.
Residents must consistently attend faith-based learning classes. Simple Acts has been given the rare opportunity to teach these classes three nights a week, recruit teachers, and to recommend the curriculum.
With that freedom, we’ve been able to teach spiritually-based studies such as “Quest For Authentic Manhood,” and “Experiencing God.” Using an excellent program known as “S.A.L.T.” (Seven Areas of Life Training), we lead prisoners through a well rounded, seven month discipleship process that includes the Spiritual, Social, Physical, Financial, Marital and Parental areas of life.
Our classes vary and may include life skills training, Bible Studies and principles for spiritual growth. In most meetings, we include time for interaction, discussion and prayer. The spiritual depth, and the show of concern these men have for their fellow inmates is tremendous.
