A Ministry of Opportunity

  Craggy Correctional Center  Ministry to the incarcerated is as old as incarceration itself. Chaplaincy in North Carolina dates back to 1876. As the second millennium began, the North Carolina Department of Correction housed over 31,000 inmates, both men and women, ranging in age from 18-85. Inmates are housed in 80 different correctional centers throughout North Carolina. 
In the Spring of 2000, the inmate population was being served by over 100 chaplains. Annually, countless numbers of worship services, scripture studies, seminars counseling sessions, segregation visits and special events are conducted by chaplains. The number of inmates, staff, families and volunteers touched by the combined ministries of these people of God who are called chaplains is immense. The positive impact on society when one prisoner's life is transformed in immeasurable.
