Adonai Ministries was founded in 2004, Adonai Ministries is a prison ministry that goes behind prison walls evangelizing the Gospel of Jesus Christ, preaching, teaching, and saving souls. Adonai Ministries provide a holistic approach to coping with being a part of the prison system. Through bible based education and training, Adonai Ministries address many of the challenges faced by families and their incarcerated loved ones.  We are a church without walls and our main goal is to bring the hope and healing of the Gospel to those who are lost.


Hebrews 13:3  (Amplified Bible)

Remember those who are in prison, as if you were their fellow prisoner, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body [and subject to physical suffering].

Psalms 69:33 (Amplified Bible)

For the Lord hears the needy and does not despise His who are prisoners.
