Bible Study Courses
Inmates can study the Bible through an interactive correspondance course and receive a personalized Award Bible. The eight course series has been a vital discipleship tool for many new Christians and an encouragement to believers in prison. These courses and other literature are printed at Gospel Echoes Printing, Inc., located in Goshen, Indiana. A network of over 600 trained volunteers across the U.S. and Canada grades the Bible Studies. Each year over 100,000 courses are provided to prisoners through charitable donations and sponsorships, along with 4,000 award Bibles given to graduates.
how it works...
An eight series Bible Study Correspondence Course is offered free to prisoners. Upon completion the courses are sent to a grading center where the courses are distributed to a volunteer grader. The grading network in the United States and Canada includes over 600 volunteer graders. After the first set of four courses is completed inmates receive a personalized award Bible with their name engraved on the front cover. Certificates are issued for each of the advanced courses.
There are 600 volunteer graders that minister to prison inmates through the Bible Study Correspondence Course. Each grading center has a Bible Study coordinator that receives the courses from the prison. The courses are then distributed to the graders. Graders have many opportunities to impact prison inmates with encouraging remarks and study helps as they grade their lessons.
