Our mentorship program introduces prisoners across Canada to Jesus so their lives can be restored through the power of the Gospel.

Join Us In Prayer

We ask that you join us in praying for our students, for prisoners, and for the chaplains we partner with in Canada. Please pray for their health, their safety, and for peace of mind during this turbulent season.

 “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer.”
Romans 12:12 (ESV)

“I went through a total life transformation.”

Peter grew up in a Christian home before losing his way. In prison, he realized he needed God’s grace.

Crossroads Prison Ministries’ correspondence courses have introduced more than 4,000 prisoners across Canada to the message of Jesus.

What Students Say

  • I would like to say thank you very much for taking the time out of your life to pray for me, my family and children. Thank you for sending me lessons to do. I love my studies with Crossroads Ministries and always look forward to do all the lessons.

    Matthew, MB
  • I would like to say thank you very much for everything you have done for me. You have been there for me, for my bible study and just been there for me. Also you have been making my relationship with God much stronger and have given me hope.

    P, Saskatchewan
  • I now realize that me coming to jail saved my life and I have learnt so much about our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. Now I have a purpose in my life. I want to help others and bring joy in their lives too and show them how great it is when you trust God in all your affairs.

    Daniel, AB
  • I am thankful for Crossroads and I believe that these studies have truly helped me establish myself in God’s Word and also made me a better person. I am thankful for my mentors and their support. The letters sent to me by my mentors inspire me. God bless you all.

    Warren, ON
  • My friend gave me a Manga Messiah lesson after the chaplain gave him 2 of the same lessons. These lessons brought me hope when hope was lost. In my time of sadness, I look forward to doing these lessons. I look at my faith with new eyes. The past is gone and I will not hold on to it — I am moving forward.

    Chris, QC
  • I wanna thank my mentors – past, present and future. I look forward to your uplifting and encouraging words. Tonight, I add you in my prayers. Thanks to a mentor for suggesting the book of Daniel – what an awesome story! Thanks to another mentor for suggesting the book of John – this was my first introduction to the gospels! I suggest it as a starting point to new and developing Christians. I said this once and will say it again – I no longer just read my Bible – it holds a conversation with me. My best friend is the living Word!

    Tyrone, BC
  • One day I picked up a Bible and started reading. Then I started doing the study courses. I ask God for help every morning, I give Him thanks every night, I help others without looking for anything in return. Life is good!

    Christopher, ON
  • Thank you very much for your words of encouragement and insight. You are all doing a terrific job and I thank-you from the bottom of my heart.

    John, ON
  • I cannot say it enough how thankful and grateful I am to have these courses in my life. As I work on turning my life over to God more completely and consistently, I pray that I absorb the Lord’s wisdom and His will!

    Brent, AB
  • Thank you for teaching me. I know it’s all God that teaches me what I need to learn but you guys definitely help God’s message get to me. Words can’t describe how grateful I am towards God and Crossroads.

    Eric, AB
  • The phrase “being born again” means to me that I am recycled… renewed… reborn… that I got a fresh start… a restart… I am new again… a new you…another shot at life!!!

    Tanner, BC
  • I want to thank my mentors and all my brothers and sisters in Christ Jesus at Crossroads ministries for all their support and encouragement. The letters sent to me by my mentors inspire me. I believe these studies have truly helped me establish myself in God’s Word and also made me a better person.

    Warren, BC
  • Working on the studies, Great Truths of the Bible and Survey of the Bible, helped me grow spiritually by setting a habit of prayer. It influenced my Christian identity and allowed me to constantly be witnessed by others. The letters and courses coming to me in the mail had other inmates noticing how often I had “outside mail” and how I was always reading in the Bible. God put me in a position of being forced to depend on Him, which I am hugely grateful for – I owe God everything!

    Kyle, AB
  • I am grateful for these lessons and I am glad I’m truly becoming closer to the Lord Jesus. It feels good getting letters from the Crossroads’ mentors. I love the feeling I get when I see a Crossroads envelope!

    Rob, AB
  • These courses are great and I am learning a lot about the Bible through the Crossroads studies. Also, thank you for the letters you send me. They truly help and I learn quite a bit from each one.

    John, AB
  • While studying the Bible through Crossroad’s Bible study, I have learned that I am never alone. God is always there with me through my happiness and grief. Tier 1 helped me better understand what the Bible means and how it can help me in my daily life. In Tier 2 I hope to further my knowledge!

    Jenny, ON
  • I was blown away to see this questionnaire. Not many people want to help an ex-criminal, but I’ve noticed over the last few months that God truly works in mysterious ways. Thank you for reaching out to me and trying to help a brother in Christ.

    Joel, AB
  • When I came to jail, I hit rock bottom. I was very sad and depressed and full of anxiety. After being in here for about a year, I was introduced to the Crossroads Bible Studies. I became a Christian in jail and it has helped me a lot. I believe God led me to Him.

    Meranda, BC
  • Crossroads not only helped Jesus reach me and bring me closer to Him, but their Bible studies, artwork, poems, and mentors all helped bring me peace. Through Christ, with the help of Crossroads, I am a better person and am growing in Christ each day. I love being a Christian and I love my Lord, Jesus Christ. Thank you, Crossroads.

    Michael, ON
  • What an amazing journey this has been so far! Thanks to Jesus, we not only know more about what God is like, but we also have a way of forgiveness through a relationship with Jesus Christ. We can know the One who made us, and we can spend the rest of our lives experi- encing His power and enjoying His love. Thanks so much Crossroads and mentors for your help and encouragement along my journey.
