“I was in prison, and ye came unto me.” (Matthew 25:36)
A team from Liberty Valley Church visits the Summit County Juvenile Detention Facility in Akron weekly to minister to incarcerated youth. The love and truth of God are communicated to these precious boys and girls through Bible study, discussion and prayer in a small group setting. Knowing that our God is a God of redemption, we seek to be used by Him to speak truth to dispel falsehood and lies, bring hope in the midst of despair, minister healing to the broken, and offer peace to lives wracked with conflict and fear-all by introducing them to the Lord Jesus Christ.
While our time with individual youths in this transitional facility is usually short, we are committed to making the most of the time we do have by using it to plant the seed of God’s Word in the hearts of those who are lost and disciple and encourage those who have become followers of Christ.
