Prison Campus Ministry

About Gateway Prison Ministry

Gateway Prison Ministry is committed to discipling the incarcerated and their families. We plant Gateway churches inside prisons and build community within prison walls, so offenders will feel like part of the Gateway family. They can experience regular worship and attend Gateway Equip classes centered on discipleship, marriage, and parenting to help prepare them for life after incarceration.

COVID-19 Update
When COVID-19 reached the States, our Texas prisons temporarily stopped all volunteer-run activities to keep everyone as safe as possible. We could no longer go into the prisons to host church services, so prison chaplains were trying to figure out how to run services on their own. Our Prison Ministries Pastor Stephen Wilson heard the need and rushed into action. With the help of our volunteers and other Gateway ministries, our prison ministry can now send full worship sets, sermons, and classes to 120 prisons across Texas, and we’ll continue sending new content weekly so residents can connect with the Lord! And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose. –Romans 8:28 (NIV)


We have small groups of men and women who lead classes and volunteer during Gateway Prison Ministry worship services. If you’d like to learn more about serving, fill out our Prison Ministry Interest Form.
