What is a Second Chance Church?
A Second Chance Church is a church that desires to show the love of Christ to people reentering the community after a period of incarceration by intentionally providing support and resources. Mentors at these churches help connect returning citizens to community supports and to programs at the church that offer discipleship.
Who Leads the Effort?
Second Chance Church is led by a steering committee of local pastors who care deeply for returning citizens. They desire to equip the body of Christ to care for this group spiritually, emotionally, and practically. Urban Alliance supports this effort and offers training and practical support to equip churches and mentors. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
