Restoring broken families

Incarcerated mothers and fathers can become the parents God has called them to be when they are transformed and equipped through the power of the Gospel.

The impact of changed lives

We were founded because of a desire for restoration. More than a decade ago, we were invited into the Louisiana State Prison – commonly known as Angola. The inmates there were hungry for Biblical truth and were looking for tools to grow in their faith. From that initial visit grew what is now known as Lifeline Global.

Lifeline Global Ministries works to restore and equip incarcerated men and women to become godly parents so that the generational cycle of incarceration can be broken. 

We work to teach and shepherd incarcerated women and men into becoming the godly parents they are meant to be – that they can be through the transforming power of the Gospel. We work with prisons and penitentiaries, churches and communities, volunteer groups and individuals to equip, resource, and transform lives.

Lifeline Global, along with our Program Partners, is making an impact in 33 states and is continually expanding into new regions.

Our programs

The need is real, but restoration is possible

The financial, relational, and societal costs of prison are staggering. The United States spends more than $5.6 billion in inmate-related costs per year, and almost 44% of criminals return before the first year out of prison.

Our mission of restoration happens in four key ways:

Malachi Dads Logo

The Malachi Dads program teaches men to be godly and live up to their responsibilities as a father. Dads are equipped to model and teach their children the spiritual tools they need to live day-to-day. For more about Malachi Dads – including how to download the first video lesson – click here.

Mothers are typically the primary caregivers and a stabilizing influence on their children. The women’s program, Hannah’s Gift offers inmate mothers the opportunity to have a spiritual impact on their children’s lives. Click here for more about Hannah’s Gift – including how to download the first video lesson.

Returning Hearts Celebration Logo

The Returning Hearts Celebration is a one-day event at select facilities that allows families to be reunited. It creates space for reconciliation and forgiveness during a day of fun, food, and hearing about God’s love. Volunteers help make this day possible. For more about this event – or to sign up to volunteer – click here.

International Ministry Logo

Restoration is needed all over the world and is coming through the power of the Gospel and the equipping of incarcerated fathers and mothers. We’re pleased to partner with organizations, churches, and ministries throughout the world to offer Malachi Dads, Hannah’s Gift, and Returning Hearts Celebration Events.

International Programs

We recently heard from one of our chaplain partners about his experience with Malachi Dads at a prison in Texas. "Wow. This is one of the best classes we have ever offered to the men in our faith-based wing. It has been part of the complete transformation of inmates’ lives, families, and communities.Praise God, this program calls the inmate towards participation and, in so doing, changes his own life."Please join us in prayer that these incarcerated men will continue on their path to becoming godly fathers and attain restoration with their families.

Returning Hearts at Parchman Prison

A 17-year-old girl fearfully met her dad for the first time. She had a wonderful time! Dads and kids raced each other in the bounce house obstacle course. Laughs and giggles were heard all over the place, and tears of joy were seen on many faces. These were just a few of the numerous blessed sights and sounds we heard during October's joyous Returning
