Criminal Justice and Mercy Ministries
a ministry of the Oklahoma Conference of The United Methodist Church

The mission of CJAMM is to break generational cycles of prison, addiction, and criminogenic behavior by nurturing healthy Christian relationships with prison inmates and their families, targeting specific reentry needs, providing care for the children of incarcerated parents, and advocacy.

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.

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.
