“For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for well-being, and not for calamity, in order to give you a future and a hope. When you call out to me and come and pray to me, I’ll hear you.” Jeremiah 29:11-12

Dear to Christ Members of the OCPM family and friends:

Over this past year, a group of amazing people prayerfully engaged in a strategic planning process for OCPM in order to discern the future plans that God has for this ministry and lay a strong foundation for its success. The ultimate desire in each of our hearts was that OCPM become all that it can be in order to reach out with the love of Christ to the men and women living in the dark world of prisons and jails across our country.

The final result of this hard work is this book you hold in your hands. If OCPM is to become all that it can be in the future, it will need your help. Please take time to look over this strategic plan and prayerfully ask the Lord how you can be a part of this vital ministry. You will be answering the call of Jesus to His sheep: “I was in prison and you came to Me.” (Matthew 25:36)

Our first strategic planning session began with this verse of Holy Scripture: “Where there is no vision, the people will perish.” (Proverbs 29:18) In the following pages, you will discover the vision for the future of OCPM. Please join with us in making this vision a reality.
