You my brothers are called to be free, but do not use your freedom for your own selfish nature, rather serve one another in love. Galatians 5:13
513FREE is called by Jesus to boldly share the Gospel with the incarcerated and those at-risk. We do that by using the spiritual and creative gifts God has blessed us with (music, teaching, arts, service & relationships). Since 2007, our aim has been to bring the hope of Christ to the broken and forgotten completely free of charge without compromising the quality of any aspect of the ministry.
In 2010, God called 513FREE to reach out to the incarcerated. We began ministering at local and regional correctional facilities, and in 2012, began a partnership with Prison Fellowship. We also have relationships with some amazing musicians, teachers, pastors, and entertainers who have collaborated in our music, events, and outreach. In addition, we regularly spend time at a local at-risk youth center as well as multiple locations involved with Mission Bible Training Center.
Many inmates are serving life-sentences and will never again experience life as we know it. In contrast, each year, over 650,000 inmates are released from prisons across the country, and they're moving into our cities, neighborhoods and communities. It is our hope that while incarcerated, we can be instrumental in leading inmates into a transformational relationship with Jesus Christ. By doing so, we believe that whether inmates are transitioning out or remaining in prison that positive spiritual life change can take place impacting them personally and their communities as a whole. We understand that we are incapable of living out our mission on our own and are continually grateful for your partnership in prayer, volunteerism and financial support.
We believe in prayer, it's the heartbeat of our ministry. Join people across the country in praying for 513FREE.
Volunteering in a prison will likely be one of the most rewarding and memorable things you'll ever experience.
Your investment into 513FREE enables us to continue to share the Gospel with the incarcerated and those at risk.
