About our Ministry

New Day Camp

CJAMM mission is to serve Jesus Christ through developing Christian relationships with people behind prison walls, helping them to break generational cycles of prison, addiction, and parental abandonment with the love and support of the Church.

Many volunteers and CJAMM staff minister to inmates, former inmates, and their families by:

  • transporting them to churches,
  • teaching Bible classes,
  • cooking and serving meals,
  • helping clothe newly employed and recently released inmates,
  • and providing mentoring and structure as they re-enter society.

The ministry helps former inmates find employment and housing, reunify families, and support them with transportation and other needs. CJAMM volunteers serve in almost every prison in the state of Oklahoma.
