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.

Our Need Grows

We have reached thousands of incarcerated fathers and mothers, and your generosity has been essential to growing our mission. But even more need our help to repair their relationship with God and with their families.

Friends – your increased commitment will help us overcome the new challenges we are facing – more expenses, economic pressures, and reduced support from grants and other philanthropic resources.

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.

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.

How does being called to support our mission of restoration affect incarcerated fathers and mothers?To help you understand how your participation can bring restoration, take a look at how the faith of one incarcerated father strengthened through the Malachi Dads program that volunteers like you provide. “After walking with God for just over 20 years, I have come to realize that I tend to forget, neglect, or even pass over the essential foundational biblical principles of God’s word,” B.B. said.“Malachi Dads has brought me back to those fundamentals that I have been brushing over that my spirit has been thirsting for in order to live an effective, godly life. It is bringing us all together with a sense of accountability and community to allow iron to sharpen iron, and we now have the privilege of watching each other grow,” he said. Please prayerfully discern your calling with our organization. Support Malachi Dads with a donation, volunteer, or simply pray for our incarcerated brothers and sisters: lifelineglobal.org/restoration-matters/.#LifelineGlobal #IncarceratedParents #Renewal #Restoration #ParentFromPrison #Recidivism #HannahsGift #MalachiDads #Nonprofit #ChangedLives ...

A prayer request from our ministry partners in East Texas today:Dear Volunteers and Supporters, We are once again asking for your prayers as we endeavor to start up a new season of Malachi Dads at Beto, Johnston, and Powledge Units here in East Texas. We had planned to start up both the Beto and Johnston Units next week but we received this message from the chaplain a few days ago.“As some of you might have already [learned], the Unit is on lockdown. I will inform you all when the Lockdown is complete and we are able to start programs and services back up. Thank you all so much for everything you do for the chapel and the guys.” A quick search showed us that there has been increased violence within the prisons due to the traffic of illicit drugs and substances.So once again our plans are frustrated by the system, but we know the Lord is looking for perseverance and not complaints. This is a spiritual battle and we need spiritual power to overcome. Please pray for:–Security, stability and peace for our units and the State system at large.–Heart hungry men who are desperate for a new and better way of living and will pay the price to see transformation come to them and their families.–Also, please keep praying that the new chaplain at Powledge will be installed soon and we are able to work quickly to begin the program there.Thank you so much for your prayers, we often feel the difference that they make,blessings, Larry for Malachi Dads, East Texas ...
