Faith Recovery Fellowship (FRF) is a chaplaincy ministry that works both inside the Alaska Prison System and outside the system, in reentry ministry. The objective of this ministry is to disciple men and women in a growing relationship with Jesus Christ. The ministry offers discipleship programs as well as a seminary level leadership training program (TUMI) to raise up Christian leaders from within the prison population. We have graduated 14 men from the TUMI program, some of whom now serve as ambassadors in other institutions in Alaska. FRF has been able to baptize over 300 men inside Goose Creek Correctional Center near Wasilla, Alaska.
The reentry ministry program is multifaceted. There are number of needs as individuals transition from institutional life back to society. Housing, transportation, assistance in job placement, basic personal needs and help in connecting them to the local church are all part of the reentry outreach of FRF. Meeting people where they are is important, but our goal is always to build a strong relationship with Christ through discipleship and TUMI leadership training.
FRF is currently working with the Alaska Department of Corrections to move Alaska natives being released from prison to a remote lodge (with cabins). The purpose of reentry ministry at the King’s Lodge is to prepare, through an in-depth discipleship program, the transition back into Alaska Villages as solid, well-grounded disciples of Christ, so they can make disciples. We would welcome support, in the form of finances and work teams to help meet the daily needs of FRF, as well as repairs and upgrades at King’s Lodge, Alexander Creek.
Thank you for your interest in this important work.
