Did You Know?
Did you know for every Bible study or worship service inside the jail, a volunteer must be approved beforehand by attending a one-hour training session, complete an application, and clear a background check? Every year over 500 jail volunteers attend a class led by Chaplain Tejado Hanchell to reclassify as a current volunteer. Once a quarter the training classes are held for volunteers to renew their status. Because the Forsyth County Law Enforcement Detention Center (jail) is a maximum security facility, strict procedures are in place to protect the inmates, volunteers and staff. Our programs are welcomed inside the jail because Christ brings peace and calm.
