Get Involved

We need your help. There are many opportunities for you to serve in this ministry. All we ask is that you have a willing heart and a spirit of obedience and you can play a crucial role in God’s ministry of Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives and Impacting the World. Here’s some basic information to help you “get involved.”

Be a Team Member

Kairos volunteers come from all walks and strata of life. They all share a desire to follow Christ’s admonition of Matthew 25:36, “I was in prison and you visited me.” If you feel God’s call to minister to the incarcerated the female family member of someone incarcerated, as a part of a Kairos team, go to Where We Serve and contact the Advisory Council Chairperson to inquire about how you can get involved, or contact the Wisconsin State Chapter office to find out about qualification and training and to be put in touch with the local Kairos community. Not all team members serve inside correctional institutions. Kairos Outside weekends are usually held at church camps (and similar facilities).

Be a Prayer Partner

All Kairos activities are covered with prayer. You can be a part of that prayer effort. Contact us! You can find many of our prayer vigils on the Prayer Vigils website.

Be a Support Volunteer

Each Kairos retreat weekend has opportunities for outside support, such as baking cookies, writing letters of support, or preparing meals. Get your church’s Sunday school classes to color placemats for mealtime in prison.

Be a Ministry Financial Donor

All Kairos activities are funded by donations. If you would like to support this ministry by your donation, make your check payable (any amount is appreciated!) to Kairos Prison Ministry International and send it to our State Treasurer at:

Kairos Prison Ministry, International
Wisconsin State Chapter
P.O Box 53
Mauston, WI 53948

Be a Cookie Baker

We may need up to 5,000 dozen cookies for a typical Kairos weekend. Do the math… that’s 60,000 cookies! Homemade cookies are a tangible expression of Christian love and an indication of God’s concern for a group of people who seldom encounter either in the course of their daily lives. Your loving sacrifice will provide “bread” that shines the Light of God’s Grace into the darkest corners of a prison unit. May God bless you for the gift of baking! Kairos Cookie Recipe and Instructions
