Prison Ministry

One of the strategic opportunities do Exchanged Life Discipleship/ Counseling is in the prison system.

For example, a volunteer is using the “For Me to Live is Christ” workbook and DVDs at this Oklahoma facility:

The Recovery Coach Training seminar, presented by John Woodward, gave a practical overview of how to apply the Exchanged Life Discipleship Counseling model to helping others find freedom from chemical and behavioral addictions. Grace Fellowship International is prayerfully developing an ongoing track to equip Recovery Coaches for personal and local church-based ministry. Here is a local news story on the seminar:
