A Faith-Based Jail Ministry

Bible Study Volunteer
Our volunteers lead Bible studies and in-jail seminars, assist crime victims, impact criminal justice legislation, mentor at-risk youth and ex-prisoners, purchase and deliver gifts to children of inmates at Christmas, and so much more. Through the diversity and unity of lay leadership from local churches, our volunteer programs effectively proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ to those impacted by crime.


GiftWith your gifts, lives are changed, the Gospel is proclaimed, and God is glorified. Our Christian ministry believes that crime is a moral problem. Christians call it "sin," and the only way to really change society is by helping individuals make lasting changes in their own lives. We want everyone to commit their lives and values to Jesus Christ and His Word, the Bible.

About Us

J.A.I.L. Ministry, Inc., is a Christ-centered jail ministry providing programs in prevention and intervention for the incarcerated in the Bell County Law Enforcement Centers, and the Juvenile Services Center. Serving Belton, Temple, Killeen and the surrounding Central Texas area, our 501(c)(3) nonprofit ministers to offenders, criminal justice professionals, victims, and their families.

Our ministry officially began on September 10, 1987, under the direction of Chaplain Harold Ellis and eight volunteers. J.A.I.L. Ministry, Inc., was incorporated as a nonprofit ministry when 501(c)(3) documents were filed on February 21, 1992. At the end of 2015, our programs accounted for 47,756 contacts in the Bell County Law Enforcement Centers and the Bell County Juvenile Services Center.

Support for our ministry is through donations from churches, businesses, and individuals. We believe that we must partner with local churches to participate in a special ministry to the "least of these" in response to Matthew 25: 34–40. It is our desire to involve volunteers at all levels in the ministry and to provide opportunities to work with all denominations, races, and cultures.
