What is Kairos Outside?

       Kairos Outside is a Christian faith based ministry which addresses the spiritual needs of women and their families affected by incarceration. By sharing the love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ, Kairos Outside hopes to change hearts, transform lives, and impact the world. Kairos Outside sprang from the Cursillo movement and is supported by volunteers from the 4th Day movements such as Cursillo, Emmaus, and others. As a ministry, Kairos Outside embraces a diverse group of volunteers working together to fulfill Christ’s call to action in Matthew 25:36.


A community spiritually freed from the effects of imprisonment reaching all impacted by incarceration, through the love, hope, and faith found in Jesus Christ


The mission of the Kairos Prison Ministry is to share the transforming
love and forgiveness of Jesus Christ to impact the hearts and
lives of incarcerated men, women and youth, as well as their families, to become loving and productive citizens of their communities.



For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger   and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.  Matthew 25:35-36
