For the thousands of moms and dads spending time behind bars, the opportunity to see their children is very rare. But one ministry is giving them a chance to make a meaningful connection with their families this holiday season.

God Behind Bars, a ministry that “sets inmates on a journey to reconnect with their family through Christ and help them follow Him,” gave moms and dads a chance to see their children and even gave them Christmas gifts.

“All is Bright” is their yearly event that reveals the true meaning of Christmas.

Children who have never met their incarcerated parents or haven’t seen them in a long time get to see their parents.

“This is the miracle that can happen during Christmas. We believe that Christmas can be the best time to show the love and hope of Jesus for inmates. They struggle with suicide and depression during the Christmas season and this is our moment to be the hands and feet of Jesus,” God Behind Bars commented on social media.

Two-thirds of parents in prison have never received a visit from their family and 75% of children with one incarcerated parent are more likely to end up in prison. And more than a third of parents will still be in prison by the time their young children reach their 18th birthdays.

That’s why God Behind Bars is giving parents in prison the opportunity to restore a relationship with their child during one of the most meaningful times of the year.
