"Christianity is the story of how the rightful king has landed, you might say landed in disguise, and is calling us to take part in a great campaign of sabotage." - C.S. Lewis
If you or a loved one are preparing to be released from prison, the process of re-entry promises to be difficult. Climbing Up offers practical instruction for those who want to be fruitful for the Kingdom on the outside. It also offers instruction for friends and family members who desire to be a source of encouragement for those going through the re-entry process.
The Gospel is true not just for the simple message of salvation, but in the way we see and live in the world. For those embarking on a new journey outside the walls, this book is practical, spiritually infused wisdom that will help you do more than survive. It will help you lay a Kingdom foundation for a transformed life.

THE ONESIMUS WORKSHOP
The Onesimus Workshop is an introductory orientation training resource that equips local churches to incorporate returning citizens into their community to serve as healthy church members and gifted servants for the church's outreach and effective ministry. Order our four-part, two-hour video seminar that offers to orient churches who see it as an opportunity to welcome former prisoners into their community.

Send us your email address to stay informed and pray, and introduce us to others so we can share the vision.

The local church is the outpost of the Kingdom of God and your participation fulfills Jesus's purposes.
LOVE THE FOREIGNER AND THE INCARCERATED
God has sent the people of the world to the USA. Immigrants, refugees, and international students live in nearly every city in America. If your church will befriend diaspora people in your community, they can reach others back in their homeland. Help your church catch this vision for world mission. Invite us to speak to your leaders about ways to start.
Former prisoners with Biblical leadership training are eager to use their gifts to serve the local church, but they need help to make the transition from prison to civilian culture. Your church can be a place to help men and women make a smooth re-entry into society, and energize your local church with their zeal.
