Using their combined 60 years of prison ministry experience, Rev Dale Glading and Rev Larry "Chap" Lilly, lead Risk Takers mission teams into prisons across America and around the world. Most trips involve athletic competition, such as softball or basketball, with talented and spiritually-hungry inmate teams. Since surveys show that 80% of America's prison popuation refuses to attend a conventional religious program, such as Bible studies or chapel services, using the international language of sports is an effective way to reach prisoners with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Below are some of our more recent prison trips as well as upcoming prison ministry opportunities. Please contact us if you would like participate in a future Risk Takers prison project.
