Direct beneficiaries per year: reached 1,042 men in prison, graduated 433 men, served 14 men in aftercare
Geographic areas served: Dallas area prisons
Programs: intensive in-prison discipleship programs and robust, tool based aftercare programs that help our men transition into skillful, productive members of society.
ROD Ministries is near and dear to my heart. I was introduced to the ministry 3 years ago and I've been captivated ever since. The transformation of what takes place in and through ROD by the power of Christ is a treasure hard to find. One of my favorite places to encourage the men and families is through the Saturday morning prayer breakfasts. They are the 3rd Saturday of every month from 9-11 at ROD. Hope to see you there--it's one of the best Saturdays you'll have in a while!
