Missons & Ministry Update: 

Sumter County Jail Ministry

God continues to provide an amazing opportunity for CCV to minister to both women and men at the Sumter County jail in Bushnell.  Those we are reaching desperately need transformation through the power of the Gospel message.  We preach Christ and Him crucified.

At the present time (March/April 2020), due to the virus outbreak, access to the jail is not possible. However, the jail officials are very interested in our continuing the mentoring ministry when the restrictions are lifted. The mentoring program takes place every Tuesday. Pray for Mike Barber as he leads the team ministering to the men. A new leader for the women is being sought and the program for women will recommence when the position has been filled.

The G.R.I.T. program (life application courses) has been on hold for several months. Pray that the jail officials will see the value of this program and give us the green light to offer courses again.
