Our mission is to select, educate, train, and theologically equip West Virginia inmates to become peer mentors. The peer mentors will counsel, comfort, serve and disciple their peers, thus serving as agents of moral change within the prison culture. The peer mentors will help bring evidence-based positive change to the prison system, reduce recidivism, translating to fewer future crime victims.
We have partnered with the West Virginia Division of Corrections and Rehabilitation and Appalachian Bible College to accomplish our mission. Catalyst Ministries funds the partnership, including Mt. Olive Bible College, along with moral rehabilitation programs. Additionally, Catalyst Ministries assists with strategic planning and program development.
