Prison Ministry and Community Theatre:
“I was in prison and you visited me.” In response to God’s call in Jesus Christ in our time and context this project will develop new prison and immigrant ministries in greater Elizabeth/Newark. This will include organizing alternative worship and community theatre on themes of incarceration, trauma and liberation. Educational ministry will be organized and led in a local prison. Community theatre will be developed working directly with our brothers and sisters who were incarcerated to write, direct, and perform original plays with the community.
