About Us

Prison in the Wild is all about bringing the light of the gospel to the darkest, most isolated places. Our mission is to transform the existing penal system into a system of justice for all. 

Our goal is to facilitate life change and communicate hope to the increasing number of men and women who find prison their circumstances in the Greater New York area.

The U.S. leads the world in the number of people behind bars according to the International Center for Prison Studies in London. Reporting in 2013, "The country makes up five percent of the world's population, but accounts for 25 percent of its prison population."

Ministry outreach takes many forms and is constantly evolving as opportunities arise. While working through the red tape that surrounds preaching and teaching in prisons as a chaplain and volunteer pastor, we also have ministries for the people in New York such as Bible studies, prayer groups, feeding the poor, discipleship, counseling, and life coaching services.

Our founder, Pastor Rex has taught and ministered to others at the Bowery Mission since the early 1980’s where we’ve been a part of the work God has done to change lives in a very practical way.

Areas where we currently do ministry: 

We partner with churches and local non-religious organizations which share the common goal of identifying, equipping, and empowering incarcerated individuals or those who have recently been released.  

We believe in the transforming work and power of the Holy Spirit and Jesus of the Bible. When he shows up in your life, things just can’t stay the same! Watch PR's life testimony as an example. Lives become transformed, and we’re honored to play a part in this story that God is unfolding. Because of the unique environment of prison ministry, we reach hundreds weekly with the good news of the gospel; seeing results can be a slow process that requires God's timing. Read about some miraculous, changed lives in our blog.

The Prison in the Wild ministry team is still small in number, but the need continues to grow. We’ve seen amazing life change already since we began. PR started preaching and meeting with men in prisons in 1999, and since then we've had the ability to reach more facilities, and be involved in various outreach programs. 

We present Jesus Christ's gospel message as the only true path to salvation. We communicate this as a relationship with God that leads to a complete life transformation. (Matthew 25:36, Acts 4:12)

We believe that changed lives are essential to breaking the cycle of recidivism. Those who are changed in the heart go on to produce positive spiritual, economic and social benefits in their respective communities and help make our world a safer place to live.

The ministry is made possible by caring individuals’ financial support and most of all:  your prayers

We have a vision to reach even more correctional facilities and prisons, and partner with more volunteers who are passionate about reaching the unreached together.
