I came across this article written by a local pastor who ministers out at Goose Creek Correctional Center.
Pastor Guisinger has been doing prison ministry for decades and has been ministering at Goose Creek since the doors opened. He also pastors a great local church and is involved in community wide outreaches.
Some highlights from the article:
"As the Goose Creek population began to increase, so did attendance at
our services. The small area designated by the administration for a
“chapel” was fast becoming overcrowded. We mentioned to a shift sergeant
that at the rate of growth we were experiencing, we would have to soon
move into the gymnasium. “That ain’t going to happen,” he replied. Two
weeks later it did. Services are now held on Friday and Sunday nights as
well. God has a plan!"
"This fledgling church has its own team of greeters, ushers and service
leaders and has developed an outstanding praise and worship team that
continues to expand its abilities."
"Christ is raising up a thriving church in the middle of a spiritually
dark place. The Christians’ testimonies are being lived out in front of
other inmates, and it is having a life-changing effect. The weekly
inmate-driven praise/worship/Bible study hour has already quickly
outgrown the existing chapel area. Inmates are waiting in line to give
their personal testimonies."
