"To assist the Church by equipping and igniting Christians to share their faith in Jesus Christ with the 'least of these'.
" WHO We Are
Bill Glass BEHIND THE WALLS is a national Christian ministry, based in Dallas, that trains thousands of volunteers each year to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ; then we provide a hands-on “training laboratory” experience by taking them into prisons and jails across the country to share their faith.
WHAT We Do
We engage inmates with a professionally staged weekend event typically held on the prison yard or in the gymnasium featuring athletes, entertainers, ex-offenders and musicians sharing their stories of how they came to faith in Jesus Christ. These performers draw the inmates out that typically wouldn’t attend a church or chapel service, by offering hope which then provides an open door for our volunteers to share their faith using our proven Gospel pamphlet.
WHY We Go
We go out of obedience. Jesus tells us to, “Go into the world and proclaim the Gospel to all creation.” As a ministry, our “Go” is to the incarcerated, but this carries over into volunteers’ personal lives and even communities. We are also specifically commanded to “visit those who are in prison.”
