Character Development Classes Making an Impact


In 2016, the Ohio Department of Rehabilitation and Correction asked True Freedom Ministries to conduct character development classes in prisons across the state. Our curriculum is based on the book of Proverbs, and we are currently using it in six institutions across the state. This 40-week class requires homework and reflection and is making a huge impact on the personal character of our clients.  This is one way God is using TF to change the culture of the prisons.  Below are a couple of testimonials:

“Reading and participating in Character Development has changed the way I perceive people in different situations.  I have become less paranoid and more discerning.  The action steps in the program have strengthened my faith and led me to write down faith goals and realize the power of prayer. Set goals and pray.  Prayer trumps money or talent.”  -Inmate Alan

“True Freedom Ministries has been a true blessing to me.  I am thankful these men are doing the Lord’s work in coming here to the prison.  I believe the values we are discussing are God’s way of developing my character.  I believe where there are two or three gathered in His Name, He is there in the midst.  I truly believe God is blessing both their efforts and mine as well.” -Inmate Jesse
