Mission: Catalyst ministries, inc. ("cmi") was incorporated to challenge and teach christian men how to grow into godly parents, equipping them to spiritually train their kids regardless of their circumstances and intentionally building a legacy of faith in christ. Cmi's mission is to build a legacy of faith by empowering men to become godly fathers and mentors through encouragement, spiritual discipleship, education and the development of godly character. The organization's centerpiece is a full-time, nationally accredited bible college at mt. Olive correctional complex. When men study the word and works of jesus christ and the morality he teaches, they usually undergo a complete transformation of their hearts. That leads to a transformation of their values, their behavior, and methods of leadership. And those things work to bring a new kind of prison reform.
Programs: Mt. Olive bible college - the organization along with the west virginia div. Of corrections and appalachian bible college have developed the first 4-year bible college in a prison in west virginia's history. The inmate students are full-time; meaning their primary role within the prison is to study the word and works of jesus christ.
