Indiana Conference Mission and Justice Ministries presents The Prison and Jail Ministry Gathering - an opportunity for people all across the state working in this meaningful and challenging ministry to gather, network, share stories and resources. Two outstanding speakers will present:

Rev. Dr. Richard Boone is a Church and Community Worker missionary with the General Board of Global Ministries serving as the Horizon Prison Initiative coordinator, West Ohio Conference. Since 2000, Horizon Prison Initiative has worked to transform prisoners who transform prisons and communities. Participants in the 10-month program work to discover and understand their faith, learn to live with a family, and address the path that led them to prison.  It’s a challenging emotional spiritual journey, and it works:  91% of Horizon graduates who are released from prison stay out of prison. (The national rate is 33%)

Dr. Robin Newhouse is Dean of the Indiana University School of Nursing and is heading the interdisciplinary team for Indiana University’s commitment to invest $50 million to collaborate with community partners to prevent and reduce addictions in Indiana. Utilizing IU’s seven campuses across the state, and in partnership with state officials, IU Health, Eskenazi Health and others, this statewide initiative is one of the nation’s largest and most comprehensive state-based responses to the opioid addiction crisis — and the largest led by a university.
