The Onesimus Prison Project is a special ministry to those men and women interred in prisons and jails and to the chaplains who minister to them.
Onesimus was a runaway slave who belonged to Philemon, a Christian and a friend of the Apostle Paul’s. Paul sent a letter to Philemon, asking Philemon to forgive Onesimus and receive him. This message of forgiveness and acceptance is a very important one to men and women incarcerated in prison.
The Onesimus Prison Project has three major outreach activities:
Free religious and counseling materials are sent to prisoners upon request from either a prisoner or a friend or family member of a prisoner.
Prison chaplains receive free materials upon request to include in their prison libraries. Pastors can request free material to take to county jail inmates. Other prison and jail ministries can also contact us for free materials to support their ministry efforts.
All donations to Southwest Radio Ministries are tax-deductible.
