LAKE BUTLER PRISON MINISTRY

ABOUT LAKE BUTLER PRISON MINISTRY

The Lake Butler church of Christ began an outreach to prisons in 1971, providing Bibles to everyone coming into the Department of Corrections. In 1975, Sam Long, the pulpit minister at Lake Butler at the time, devoted a full year to the establishment of a statewide prison ministry. This legacy lives on, carried forward through the ongoing efforts of ministers Gary Wyder, Christopher Carter, and many others throughout the Florida state prison system. Gary spent 40 years working and growing this ministry. Buford church of Christ now supports Chris Carter, as he continues to plant seeds and water through studying with inmates.

Through this ministry and sharing the Gospel, God can reach into the hearts of men and women who have lost their way, helping them to function more positively within the prison environment, and preparing them for a successful re-entry into society.

The Florida Prison Ministry believes that “changed lives can change lives” and these efforts have helped many become a Christian and serve in the Lord’s church.
