Bringing the hope and transformative power of God's love and word to locally incarcerated men and women.

The King will reply, " I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me." - Matthew 25:34

"Kairos" is Greek for "God's Time."

Kairos is when God's timing takes place. The Kairos Ministry consists of a group of men that volunteer to go into prison for a 4-day retreat and share God's Love with approximately 30 inmates. Additionally, we have follow-up meetings every month with the inmates

Most of the prisoners have been abandoned by their families & friends. They generally feel great remorse & guilt. They live in a world of silence, confinement, anger, sadness, isolation & depression. Some inmates have been waiting for more than 10 years to attend Kairos. 

How can you help? 

  • Volunteer to do a retreat

  • Bake cookies; we go through about 150,000 cookies in a weekend

  • Write letters of encouragement

  • Have children color placemats for the inmates

  • Sponsor a meal; each meal cost $5

For questions or to help out, please contact Jeremy Wood at (864) 436-1768.

Women's Prison Ministry

Each month, women from Columbus Baptist Church visit local Rutherfordton County Jail to pray with the female inmates, offering compassion and hope in the midst of their trials.


Their prayer request are jotted down and shared with the church to pray for each individual and their families.
