1. Pray and ask God to lead and guide you to serve Him in women's ministry.

2. If your church does not have a specific jail ministry for women, meet with your pastor and ask him to support you in meeting with the local jail chaplain or officer in charge.  Express your desire to lead a Christian class or service as needed at the jail.

3. Every church needs a Sunday School class for women who have special needs in their life: the lonely, widowed, divorced, ex-inmates, abused, single, new Christians, have husbands who are non-Christians and more.  As a rule they do not feel comfortable in a main-stream class and often, quit church altogether. Make an appointment with the Pastor and/or Education Minister and explain your desire to begin a Women's Sunday School Class for women who are temporarily over-coming obstacles in their life!

4. Are you seeking to participate in a ministry but are home-bound?  Start the Jail Pen Pal Mentoring Ministry and bless others with God's principles, right from your kitchen table!  Meet with a jail ministry team and let them help you implement this in your church. If you don't have a jail ministry, call the local jail chaplain, explain your ministry and ask for telephone numbers to women who do minister in the jail who can help you.

5. Do you (or someone you know) need a women's transitional home with a spiritual rehabilitation program? You just found one: the WIT Home!  Check it out! If we can't help you, we can steer you to one that can.

6. Do you feel like your church is ready to support a Recovery Home for women in need?  Check out this web site for all the procedures to do it successfully!

7. Want to join WIT but can't find a church that has this type of ministry? Go to our spiritual guidance links and check out the recommended churches.. You can receive a newsletter by mail or email weekly.  Go to our prayer request sites and let us know how we can pray for you.  Send us your testimony!  We welcome you!

8. We have founded a WIT Ministry in Zambia, Africa. If you want to help needy widowed women grow crops, learn a trade, and know the peace and joy through Jesus Christ, we would love you to join us.  All year we collect funds for women in great need to accomplish these goals. In August, 2010, WIT is going to Zambia to help these precious ones and make sure every penny is spent wisely.  If you would like to help WIT with this project, go to the area of our web site that says, "WOULD YOU LIKE TO HELP WIT?" We promise,"Every penny we collect goes to help women and children."

Here is her story:

My life before Jesus seemed fine to me. I was raised in a Christian home attending church and thinking I was a Christian. As I struggled through my childhood into my young adult years I felt insecurity in my "Christianity" always hearing the question being asked " If you die tonight, do you know without a doubt that you are going to Heaven?" and never knowing the answer. I had an impression that if I went through all of the steps and motions I learned, in becoming a member of the church I attended, that would give me the security I was lacking. Out of many fears I never joined the church, mostly because I saw and heard about changes in peoples lives that was expected and I was only living for myself at that time. I was not interested in changing the people, places and things in my life! I thought I was okay because I grew up in church and knew so much about religion. During this season I experienced hopelessness. I had made many bad choices throughout my life thus far and felt that God was mad at me and would never forgive me because I had broken some serious commandments, I could never be saved.

If you are seeking a church with a women's ministry like Women in Truth, please contact us. (Also, see our Spiritual Guidance Links for more suggestions.) Since this women's ministry is often over-looked by the church, you may discover you will need to encourage your church to develop one, like we did!  This web-site offers you free tools to get started.

If you do not have a church home, please read the following article.

WHAT TO LOOK FOR IN SEARCHING FOR A CHURCH HOME

These days people often look for a church in much the same way they choose a mall or restaurant. Many people look for adequate parking, great facilities, their favorite songs and exciting youth programs, but this, of course, is basing one's choice on the wrong things. A word of caution in choosing a church, don't expect to find a perfect one, for if there were such a church, the moment you or I joined it, it would no longer be perfect! Every church, being full of sinful (though hopefully saved) people, is going to have its short comings. So our need is to set our sights of the primary issues.

  1. Does it believe that the Bible is the source book for all truth, faith and practice? Check out their "Statement of Faith" on what they believe.
  2. Does it preach the saving Gospel of Jesus Christ ALONE, not adding anything else to salvation?
  3. Do people regularly respond to the Gospel & get saved?
  4. Are the messages relevant, edifying, & Biblical?

Closely related here is the type of preaching that is done. Is it for the most part taken from the Bible scriptures, expository (going verse-by-verse through the Bible) or is the congregation fed on sermonettes and popular topics that seek to make people feel good or address the so-called self-help needs. Since God's Word is relevant and deals with life as we find it in any age, expository preaching will take care of our needs as it enhances our walk with the Lord.

  • Are the services honoring to the Lord, and beneficial to spiritual growth? Is the Holy Spirit working and moving during the service?
  • Do the members actively serve the Lord?
  • Look for a church that has a focus on small group weekly Bible study with qualified Bible teachers.  Secondly, do they have some kind of fellowship in the sense of caring for one another. Are there small groups for the purpose of fellowship, Bible study, prayer, and caring for each other?
  • Is the church seeking to reach its community for the Savior? (Locally and world wide.)  Are they equipping the members to be effective witnesses?
If God has called you to begin a WIT ministry in your church, we can help get you started! We want to share our experiences and learnings so you neither struggle with administrative issues, nor have to recreate some of the documentation that has been time proven. There is no charge for these resources, and we will help and encourage you in any way we can!

  • To offer Jesus as the foundation on which to build their lives and to exemplify the Christian life before them.

WIT Sunday School Warriors - These women make WIT Sunday School happen every Sunday morning at FBC BelleviewIt all began one Sunday morning, as my husband Bob and I were sitting in Gene & Anita Scoggie's Co-Ed Sunday School Class. It was a typical day where we all politely sat in a circle with Lifeway lesson books in one hand and a cup of coffee and coffee cake in the other. Pure luxury!

As Gene so ably taught the lesson, I found myself distracted and self-absorbed in the scripture references for our lesson.  You will have to understand, at this time of my life as a volunteer women's jail chaplain, I was "missing and hurting" for the women who weren't in Sunday School and church, the neglected and the rejected.

Ideally,  it would be advantageous to begin with a WIT Jail ministry as I did and I pray you will!  From my observations, following are some obstacles you may encounter and some suggestions on how to overcome them.

The goal of the WIT Sunday School classroom is to create a warm, friendly, non-intimidating room where women can have a loving fellowship while growing spiritually in Christ.

After years of trial and error, the following steps have proven to be the most successful.

However, we recommend at first you use your own creativity with "what you have available" to create a cozy, cheerful class room.  It may be one pot of flowers and a coffee pot!  In time, you will be able to add the items I've mentioned. The most important thing is to "get the class going!"  Remember, anything is better than nothing and will be greatly appreciated!  In reality, your unconditional, nonjudgmental love is the most important single ingredient in this classroom!

  • WIT Welcome Sign:  Hang a sign immediately outside of your door so that women will easily see and find your room!  Don't have them wandering around the church or they may leave!
  • Door Greeters:  Designate your most loving ladies to stand at the door and welcome others in!  She is the most important representative of your Sunday School class.  Similar to a commercial airline flight attendant who welcomes everyone aboard the plane!  "A crabby or nonchalant greeting instigates a negative flight.  A warm greeting instigates a positive flight!"  She should learn the ladies name and introduce her to others immediately so there is a "feeling of family."  The next step is for others to offer her refreshments and assist her in finding a chair.
  • Enrollment:  Only when the lady is comfortable in her chair should you sit down next to her with an enrollment form and help her fill it out.  You may do it for her if you suspect she can not do it herself.  Don't assume all women can read or write!

For the past seventeen years, God called me to serve the Lord in jail ministry. first as a Marion County Jail women's volunteer chaplain in Ocala, Florida.  This "God opportunity,"  literally turned my life upside down as Jesus opened awesome spiritual doors!  With a whole-hearted commitment and passion, every ounce of my time and energy went into preparing Christ-centered lessons and worship songs, leading over 500 women each year to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The WIT Jail Ministry is an outreach program designed to share the Good News of Jesus Christ to women who are incarcerated. Secondly, we help them grow as new disciples of Jesus Christ by offering a wide range of spiritual opportunities both before and after their release.  Finally, it is our goal to help them become responsible citizens of our community, leading an independent life following biblical principles in their own home while remaining an active member in a church family.

The foundation of the Jail Ministry is a faithful group of prayer warriors.  I guarantee you, it must be No.1 on your list if you plan to be spiritually successful in jail ministry. This is a pretty bold statement!  Why do I say this?  

To be truthful, when I first began the jail ministry years ago, there was little time for me to pray.  By the time I had put in long hours on the Bible message, chose and recorded the praise songs, and went to the printer to copy off dozens of lessons,  I found myself in my car, rushing to the jail to meet my first devoted jail assistant, Carol Jeffries.  Together we walked down the long echoing cement halls, heard the clang of the steel doors locking behind us and welcomed 50 inmates at a time to our services.

Jail ministry is a mission field opportunity, second to none, in our community.  The women have been removed from society and are awaiting a court hearing to be sentenced.  At this point of their incarceration, most are literally "on their face in tears" .... devastated, scared, ashamed, and remorseful.  This is the perfect opportunity to offer hope, love and restoration through Jesus Christ! 

Jeanene-250Jeanene shares how her life went from darkness to a joyful life in Christ!

PRAISE OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST!

I am always THANKFUL for all the WIT Ministry did for me when I was in one of the darkest experiences of my life! I can never THANK YOU ALL enough! You all are in my prayers.

The LORD, as always is FAITHFUL! He is still Blessing me with HIS most Precious Presence. I am very Thankful for the Blood of JESUS because I am so unworthy. I am Grateful for His GRACE!

I have been enjoying my family; Daughter Aquila, Son-in-law Wade, 1st Granddaughter Layla who is 4 today (Blonde hair) and my Bethanie (Red hair) who will be 3 on March the 4th. I am so thankful for their love and forgiveness towards me.

I am diligently serving the LORD and working 3 part time jobs. The LORD has blessed me with a Christian room-mate in a very comfortable home and neighborhood. THE LORD IS GOOD, Always!

As requested, I am sending a couple of pictures of my family and myself from when we were BLESSED to go to Disney last year from Dec 10-18th.

Jay, Wade's Father went with us, THANKFULLY. However, unfortunately, Jay was killed in a very bad car accident this past April. He was hit by a triangle moving truck which ran a red light and hit Jay. He died 3 hours later. VERY great loss! Please keep my family in prayer. This is the 1st season without him. My first granddaughter, Layla was born on Jay's birthday.

Thank you all for all your prayers and sending me the Wit letter. I do appreciate it very much!

You all do a great work. Please let me know if i can help in any way.

LOVE & PRAYERS,

Jeanene

I was very insecure growing up.  I had been abused, rejected and hurt.  I continually made bad choices and became an addict because of it.  This left me feeling ashamed and alone.  I was hooked and continued for many years.  My life was out of control.

Lori is a graduate of USC with a degree in Religion. While in California going to school, she worked as a music manager.  Following graduation, she was promoted to one of the most powerful jobs in the music industry.  As you can hear in her testimony, she discerned this job grieved God's heart and was not His plan for her to work in an industry that did not honor Him.

A typical WIT Jail Worship Service includes the following materials:

Scripture Lesson: We print a several page hand-out used by the inmates for the Worship/Bible Service plus additional Bible study notes for their quiet time in the days ahead.

Christian Video:  To reinforce the Bible Truths of every lesson, I often use a portion of Dr. Charles Stanley’s message taken from the “In Touch” Television Ministry Programs.   By doing so, the women can receive spiritual nurturing from a “respected male spiritual leader”,something lacking in the majority of their lives.

From www.Ocala.com "Spontaneous laughter, applause and shouts of 'That's right!' and 'Amen!' erupted during a church service for female inmates at the Marion County Jail on a recent Sunday.

Facilitated by Women in Touch, an outreach of First Baptist Church of Belleview, the church service is just one aspect of a ministry that is opening doors for women in transition from jail and those seeking release from addiction.

New_Ann_sm

It all started when the Lord called on a farm girl from Minnesota to share the love of Jesus Christ and help those who truly need help - those who society and sometimes even their own families have totally abandoned.  WIT founder, Ann Kuefner, just wanted women to know they are loved by the One whose love could provide them eternal life and a peace and confidence that is only achieved through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

WIT started with God and one woman.  It can start with you, too!

wit_home_gathering_smThe WIT Home is free to any Christian woman who is determined to "begin again" and follow biblical principles. She must make a commitment to a minimum 12 months to a spiritual recovery program, be employed full time during day time hours, place her weekly income in a church savings account (which is returned to her 100% at graduation) and attend all requried church events and recovery classes.

The backbone of our recovery program is structure and accountability. The WIT Core Leadership Group is made up of women who are employed with full-time jobs and families.  Therefore, it is of utmost importance that we don't cater to women who are not going to comply. We make certain of this through the "WIT HOME CLIENT POLICIES & PROCEDURES."

When a client first arrives, she must sit down with two intake counselors.  The policies and procedures are read & discussed with her completely, and she indicates her understanding and agreement by initialing each one!  We provide an abundance of loving support to the woman who is sincerely committed, but occasionally have had to dismiss those who are not.

If you are interested in participating in our Home and Recovery Ministry or would like additional information, please contact Kathy via e-mail.

For more information, see Ministry Tools: Home & Recovery.

Our first goal is to assist women who are in spiritual need: first for salvation through Jesus Christ and secondly, for spiritual growth through the truth of God's Word, the Bible.

Secondly, it is our goal to help any church start their own women's ministry for women in need.  You are free to use our years of experience with "tried and true" methods and forms, through the Women in Truth website.  We are here to serve you so that by working together, God will be glorified, through the restored lives of precious women.

Women In Truth (WIT) is a non-profit women's ministry that was originally founded and developed at the First Baptist Church of Belleview, Florida, but is now a separate, not-for-profit ministry. Our funds are designated donations from Christian friends in our church family and community. The Women In Truth (WIT) purpose is reaching out beyond the church doors, with the loving arms of Jesus, to all women in the community who have a desire to make Jesus their personal Savior and the Lord and Master of their lives.

The WIT goal is to provide spiritually life-changing opportunities in assisting:

1) women to understand God's plan and purpose in their life through the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

walkers_smWithout the vision and encouragement of Pastor's Damon and Ronnie Walker of the First Baptist Church of Belleview, Florida, Women in Truth Ministry would not have started as quickly nor as successfully.  With joy, they approved most everything we did with a loving smile and much encouragement to persevere and press on! Their wives, Betty and Alice Walker, were equally as supportive and a delight to every WIT lady.  We thank God for pastors who not only talk the talk but walk the walk;  "Opening the doors of the church and their hearts, reaching out with Christ's love to the community, welcoming everyone!"

My life was full of guilt about the background of my life.  I had so much shame in me that even today I still have some of it in me.  I don't have many material things as others do, but I have love now, which keeps me going through the experiences I've had in my past life.

Our pen-pal ministry is focused on supporting the spiritual needs of female inmates by providing supportive, caring letters. Many of those ministered to have been forgotten by their families and the world, so it seems. Through the efforts of volunteers both within the membership of First Baptist Church Belleview, FL and others, true Christian love is exemplified in a real and meaningful way.

Our goal is to find loving, encouraging Christian women who would be willing to write inspiring letters or cards to a Christian woman inmate or one who desires to know more about Christianity.  This involves approximately 1 letter or card per week.  Would you like to serve God in this way?

  • Our mission purpose:  is to help women inmates discover strength and hope to reach beyond their circumstances through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • The Pen Pal Ministry is a commitment to correspond with female inmates helping them discover strength and hope in the Lord. Receiving mail is one of their greatest joys.  'They all stand together and wait each day as the names are called out to those who have received mail.' Some "never" get mail or visitors.  They spend months standing and waiting, only to be rejected by family and friends.  Your Christ-like witness through letters can change a life!
  • Cards and letters are permitted only.  No gifts of any kind or books should be sent.
  • Commitments other than letter writing are discouraged.  (Examples: telephone calls, money, books, car rides, court appearances, contacting other relatives, and the like.)  When asked, you can reply: "I am very sorry. The Pen Pal ministry has policies and regulations and I have made a commitment to be a pen pal only.  Anything else is discouraged.  Be assured my prayers will be with you."
  • Please do not make any promises you can not keep!
  • Many will be released while you are writing to them.  It is up to you if you want to continue writing.  It may be a blessing to you both.  However, in most cases, they probably will stop due to lack of a permanent home address.

"We are confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6
  • Do not offer services for which God has not provided resources.  Start where you are with what resources God has provided, and do what you can by God's enabling. Just be faithful in the little and God will bless and multiply.
  • Do not feel guilty over what you cannot provide. Focus positively on what God has enabled you to do. By and large, the greater extent of your service will be offering just plain love, friendship and understanding.

Lyrics

Shelley is the oldest daughter of Bob and Ann Kuefner, founder of WIT. She has four children and resides in Connecticut. Shelley graduated from the School of Music at Indiana University in Voice & Piano, musical gifts she has used for the Lord throughout her life. She actively leads Praise and Worship at both her church and at Women's Church Retreats.

WIT Graduate and Volunteer SherrySherry is a young mother who was a victim of drugs for years, spending many years behind bars! Today, you would never know it! She is a graduate of WIT, is in management training for a major business, has taken college classes,  has her own home, has full custody of her teenage son, and together they are heading off on a church mission trip in June! This past month, we were rejoiced  to make Sherry a member of the WIT Core Leadership Group.

Right now, ask yourself the following questions:

  • Do I know for sure that when I die I am going to Heaven?
  • Do I know the requirements to get into heaven?

You can know for sure! Read the following carefully...

Out of bondage--new souls for Christ! The foundation of the Women In Truth ministry is the Church Sunday School Class. It is here where Jesus is able to reach out with an unconditional love to hurting, insecure women like no where else.

  • It is here where women begin to feel comfortable, as an accepted and respected part of the church family.
  • It is here where women finally open up their ears to God's Word and begin to understand how it applies to their life.
  • It is here where women can be offered a wide variety of spiritually enriching experiences, other than on Sunday morning.

vinelle_headI will start by saying, God has really taken me from the gutter to a life of freedom. For many years, life had no meaning for me.My life was full of the turmoil and darkness. I knew of God, but I did not have a relationship with Him.

I grew up in a very unstable environment and encountered unspeakable abuse which lead to reaching out for Love in the wrong places. Because of the abuse, I carried a lot of pain, hatred, and shame for over forty years.  As a result, for over twenty years I used drugs. I used drugs to get rid of the pain; to self medicate. Later I realized that I had added to the pain, by becoming a drug addict.  I would try to stay clean by my own will but that always failed.

WIT, Inc. is non-profit, independent ministry developed for women in need: first, to encourage and provide free helps to church women to begin their own ministries and secondly, to provide immediate spiritual help to women in great need. Women in Truth is not associated with any particular church or parent organization.

A TESTIMONY ABOUT CRACK

BY Wendy
Written at the
Marion County Jail - 2003

Hello, I'm the powerful crack cocaine,
Hit me once, your life will never be the same.

Salvation is deliverance from danger or suffering. It means: to save is to deliver or protect. The word carries the idea of victory, health, or preservation. Sometimes, the Bible uses the words saved or salvation to refer to temporal, physical deliverance, such as Paul's deliverance from prison (Philippians 1:19).

More often, the word salvation concerns an eternal, spiritual deliverance. When Paul told the Philippian jailer what he must do to be saved, he was referring to the jailer's eternal destiny (Acts 16:30-31). Jesus equated being saved with entering the kingdom of God (Matthew 19:24-25).

One can only imagine what it would be like to spend several hours locked up in the jail.  Following is an excerpt from Ann's journal as she writes about a typical night.

Dear Prayer Warriors,

Your prayers were definitely heard and answered!  Thirty-two women attended, 21 unsaved.  At the invitation, all 21 came forward, accepted Jesus Christ as their personal Savior and the Lord of their lives.  The others who were Christians, all rededicated themselves to a more obedient walk with the Lord.  When you have time to read further, I will give some of the details.

    "Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive and accept and welcome the kingdom of God like a little child [does] positively shall not enter it at all." Mark 10:15 AMPAs we begin our walk with God in 2011 we need to guard our hearts against certain attitudes that will keep us far from His heart. These include the mind of the proud who wants to know it all; the opinion of the critic who wants to judge it all; the attitude of the narcissist who wants to be it all; the desire of the covetous who wants to have[…]

  • Families of Christians Imprisoned For Their Faith, Need Your Help

    Sep 21, 2010

    Families of Christians Imprisoned  For Their Faith, Need Your Help Esther's Mom is in prison for a crime she committed! The above line may not sound like a plea for help...but it is. Esther's Mother was sentenced to two years of forced labor in a Chinese "re-education" camp... because of her Christian work. China claims to have "freedom of religion" and does not persecute Christians. But this apparently is not the truth, because Esther's parents were arrested for pastoring a Christian (unregistered) house church. Like most Christians in China they choose to serve God without Communist government control.Esther - currently a student at a U.S. Christian university - is asking[…]

Zambia WIT LadiesInvited to be the guest speaker at a Lusaka, Zambia Baptist Women's Conference in 2004, Ann Kuefner spoke to an enthusiastic and responsive audience when she shared the objectives and goals of the Women In Truth Ministry back home in America.
