Orthodox Prison Ministry Transforms Lives
Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry (OCPM) ministers to people in prison, their families, and those who have been released from prison, responding to the Lord’s call, “I was in prison and you visited Me.” (Matthew 25:36). OCPM is an agency of the Assembly of Canonical Orthodox Bishops of the United States of America, the official Orthodox prison ministry in the country.
Since January 2013, Leadership 100 has awarded nearly $75,000 to OCPM in two grants. The first grant, for $20,372, funded the training of Orthodox clergy in target cities and regions.
