Did you know that Bethel has been involved in prison ministry for 10+ years?
Write-Way Prison Ministries (WPM), the Emmaus prison ministry coordinator for Texas & Louisiana, is a Bible correspondence school for prisoners, whether in city or county jails, state prison, or Federal prison. They are dedicated to the propagation of the gospel and the promotion of Christian growth in the Word of God through free Bible correspondence courses to prisoners in the State of Texas and Louisiana. The Emmaus Curriculum along with Navigator Study Guides is used by Write-Way Prison Ministries, Inc. These self-paced study courses have proven to be one the most effective ways to present Biblical truths to others.
Through Cathy Oliver and Robin Craig, Bethel became involved in this ministry in late 1999. Since 2001, Cliff Adams has led the group of Bethel volunteers that grade course exams for WPM. Currently 14 volunteers grade a total average of 35 lessons per week. Most lessons have 12 topic exams with multiple choice questions. These exams are graded using a PC based or online grading tool. Each topic exam has one question requiring a written answer. The remaining studies are from the Navigators and all answers are written out. The written answers along with patterns in the multiple choice questions provide many opportunities for the grader to mentor and disciple the student.
