+Fr. Duane Pederson+

Founder of Orthodox Christian Prison Ministry‚Äč

It is with joyful sorrow that we share the news that the founder of OCPM, Father Duane Pederson, reposed in the Lord on July 20, 2022.
May his Memory be Eternal!

We believe in a world where even those behind bars deserve second chances.

As we face crisis levels of incarceration in the US, our Lord commands us to visit Him in prison. 
Join the Matthew 25:36 Fellowship, our community of monthly givers, to bring Christ to those behind bars every single month.
