Welcome to Prison Fellowship Nigeria
Prison Fellowship is a corporate Christian Ministry. It is an association of prison ministries of different denominations across the Christian faith. Our priorities are to win prison inmates and their families to Christ and disciple them in God’s word. Hence we exhort, train and equip Christians to reach out and identify with prisoners, ex-prisoners and their families, and show them practically that the gospel of Jesus christ is able to make the difference in their lives.

But what if…” The speaker began.
It was a tale of two families at different ends of the spectrum…
Mr. Dona Akonga was a security man at Akansa Holdings. Life was normal until one fateful morning. A detachment of police officers arrived at his house. He was wanted for questioning. There had been a major burglary at Akansa Holdings. He and his fellow security men were prime suspects as it happened during their shift.
They were held while investigations went on. He thought everything would be over within a week because he knew he was innocent. But contrary to his expectation, a week turned into a month, a month into a year and a year into ten years.
What would have been his maximum sentence if had been found guilty of the said burglary?
Just 7 years.
But then he had spent 10 years; released only because the new attorney general decided to review a number of cases. He was now released. But released with what; into what?
Apart from funds for our various programmes, we also need on a revolving basis, the provision of training materials, workshop equipment and tools for practice.
Volunteers are critical to the operations of Prison Fellowship Nigeria. So we appreciate your desire to volunteer.
