Listen, Listen, Love, Love!
Kairos of West Virginia
Well-organized and well-trained volunteer teams of men and women from the communities surrounding an institution present an introductory 3-day weekend described as a short course in Christianity. This inter-denominational team of volunteers — both clergy and laypersons — works in cooperation with the Chaplain who carefully selects up to 42 inmate leaders to attend. A well-organized follow up is part of this program.
Our Kairos Inside program currently operates in 6 prisons in West Virginia. More than 2,000 incarcerated men and women have been introduced to Kairos, since its inception here in 2002. The current number of volunteers exceeds 400 per year.
