Maverick City Music is using their music to spread God's goodness to inmates.
The Grammy award-winning band partnered with God Behind Bars ministry to sing to incarcerated men.
In a performance last June, the band sang 'Jireh', bringing inmates serving 15 years to tears and their knees.
"These incarcerated men believe in Jireh wholeheartedly. These inmates have nothing. Have lost everything. Have been abandoned. Many have been abused. But still believe in the God who provides," said God Behind Bars ministry in an Instagram post.
Since 2009, God Behind Bars has partnered with churches around the country to transform the lives of prison inmates and their families. Most prisoners—as many as 92% of all incarcerated individuals—will be released back to society at some point, and 75% of them will return to prison within three years. God Behind Bars addresses this problem with a unique three-step approach that focuses on the physical, spiritual, and relational needs of inmates and their families.
God Behind Bars Ministry wants to plant ten campuses inside prisons in 2023.
