Mentoring A Returning Citizen

This module provides training resources to help church leaders prepare their members to mentor people returning to the community from incarceration. Mentoring returning citizens can be an effective way for a Christian to put faith into words and actions. Mentors benefit from the process as well as the people they help!

Although individuals can work through these materials privately, the training works best when a participant can work on activities with other students. Recruit a group to take the training together, or contact WELS Prison Ministry to join a group training when it is offered online.

Resources include:

  • Course Manual (Introduction and 7 lessons)
