Our Mission: christ-centered SUPPORT FOR THOSE IMPACTED BY INCARCERATION AS THEY SEEK TO REBUILD THEIR LIVES

 

We are a volunteer-led, faith-based ministry serving Johnson County KS and Wyandotte County KS providing Christ-centered spiritual support and encouragement to those incarcerated, as well as to ex-offenders, and their families, seeking to rebuild their lives.

 

"I will fulfill my gracious promise to you and restore you...For I know what I have planned for you" says the Lord.  "I have plans to prosper you, not to harm you. I have plans to give you a future filled with hope." Jeremiah 29: 10b-11 (New English Translation)

 

Since 1995, Gracious Promise has ministered to the incarcerated and their families...many of whom feel confused and ashamed, and are often emotionally challenged as they experience severe instability. Each faces many obstacles inherent in our society as it exists today. We assist interested individuals in dealing with these barriers and in moving forward in their walk with Christ.
