Pastor Jeff & Deb Rudd – FICPM
Free in Christ Prison Ministries is a non-denominational prison ministry that involves volunteers, prayer partners and contributors from a number of congregations. The ministry is directed by Jeff Rudd and operates as a missionary outreach of Calvary Chapel. Jeff, Deb and their family have worshipped at Calvary Chapel of Cary in Apex, NC for more than ten years.
Jeff has worked with men in prison since 1993. In July of 2001, the Lord called him to disciple men in prison on a full-time basis. Since then, God has provided the resources and directed the work that Jeff and the volunteers of Free In Christ Prison Ministries do in two North Carolina prisons.
They disciple men in prison by teaching and applying His Word as the Holy Spirit directs. The Lord has opened doors for Jeff and other volunteers to counsel, teach Bible Studies, lead Beyond Addictions classes, operate Christian discipleship radio stations (the CHRISTIAN EDUCATION NETWORK) and publish newsletters and sermons for men in prison.
OUR MISSION is to disciple men in prison for Jesus Christ; to connect them so closely to the Lord that they will continue to grow in their relationship with Him until they go home to meet Him.
To instill in them the things that have been instilled in us according to II Timothy 2:2, ‘Thou therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus. And the things that thou hast heard of me among many witnesses, the same commit thou to faithful men, who shall be able to teach others also.’
To encourage men in their faith so that with us or apart from us they will trust that all things truly do work together for good to those who love the Lord and are called according to His purposes (Romans 8:28), and that by His divine power, all things that pertain unto life and godliness have been given to us through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue (II Peter 1:3).
We pray that through this discipleship, these men will be rooted and grounded in their relationship with Jesus Christ, filled with the Holy Spirit and committed to walking in faith in such a way that they lead others in a living relationship with Jesus Christ.
