FOCUS Ministries

We are hard at work Inspiring Student Behind the Walls, Empowering Student Beyond the Walls, Reconciling Families, & Engaging the Workplace-- to Gods glory

FOCUS Ministries is a Christian non-denominational, IRS recognized, non-profit organization. FOCUS (Following Our Choices Unto Success) works with women in the Knox County Jail and Detention Facility, as well as, the three Prisons of East Tennessee.

The FOCUS work “Behind the Walls” includes unique evangelistic events (utilizing motorcycles and sports celebrities), weekly Support group meetings, Discipleship classes, Nicotine Dependency Classes, Life-skills classes, one-on-one work in various Maximum Security Units, and Faith-based Transition Counseling.

“Beyond the Walls,” FOCUS provides Transition and Educational services to ex-offenders recently released to the Knoxville Community which include weekly Support Group Meetings, Transitional Housing, Mentoring, Job Assessments and Training through the CEOs (Christian Ex-Offenders Services) Program, and continuing Educational Training through the FOCUS Christian Academy.

The Family Support Team of FOCUS provides transportation for family members to prison on special occasions (eg, Mothers Day), coordinates the Angel Tree Christmas Program for local children whose parents are incarcerated, and our Teen FOCUS Lock-Down Outside Program provides weekend events and monthly mentoring to children of incarcerated parents and other at-risk kids in our community.

Our mission is to help inmates and their families to know Jesus as their Savior, to mature in their faith, and to help ex-offenders to transition back into society as good citizens.
