Kairos TorchKairos Torch Prison Ministries

Kairos is the overall ministry, while Torch is the branch that seeks to reach youth in prison.  International in scope its headquarters are in Florida, and it serves in prisons around the world.  Kairos ministers to incarcerated individuals, their families, and those who work with them.

More than 20,000 volunteers represent the Christian faith and present a Christian perspective based on principles that all share in common.  Volunteers are ecumenical, coming from many Christian denominations.  On a local level First Presbyterian’s volunteers work at Alexander Youth Assessment and Training Center.  In addition, the church supports the Kairos Torch effort with prayers, cookies, donations, sponsorships of individual youths, and use of our facilities for training.
