Madison Jail Ministry

The Madison Area Jail Ministry (MAJM) has been providing spiritual care in the Dane County Jail for over 50 years. Through the work of our chaplains and a dedicated team of volunteers we provide pastoral care to all those who live and work in the jail. Unlike prison, where people know their out date because they have already been sentenced, many in the county jail do not yet know the outcome of their case. This uncertainty produces a great deal of anxiety and stress. There is a tremendous opportunity to provide the hope and peace of the Gospel to those at the crossroads of their lives.    http://www.madisonjailministry.org/
