Volunteering at Kingdom Boundaries Prison Aftercare is an important aspect of our ministry. It not only helps make KBPA operate more efficiently, but more importantly is what volunteering does for our residents, and what it does for you.
At many times throughout the year we can use extra help to fix and update our two living facilities. Both the “The Carpenter Shop” and the “The Master’s House” are in constant need of small repairs. When you volunteer to help with these things, it is an important example to the men living with us. Many of our men come in to us with a “what I can get” mentality. Your friendly service (servanthood), expecting nothing in return, models a valued character trait that is needed for everyone.
