Reaching, Reconciling, Restoring Lives Impacted by Crime and Incarceration
Reverend Dr. Michael R. Smith, Sr., NBCUSA PMCJC Commissioner
“Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them” – Hebrew 13:3
The NBCUSAPMCJC’s strategy for providing on-going training, teaching and education for NBCUSA churches in their efforts to reach, reconcile and restore lives impacted by crime and incarceration.
The NBCUSAPMCJC is dedicated to equipping NBCUSA churches to reach, reconcile and restore lives impacted by crime and incarceration. Our efforts seek to reach persons incarcerated, family members of the incarcerated (e.g., Project Village – Mentoring Children of Prisoners), family members of victims of crime, and persons returning to the community. To reach our goals, the NBCUSAPMCJC will seek to work with NBCUSA churches, prison chaplains, faith organizations, law enforcement, legislative, judicial and correctional officials in order to effectively address all persons and entities related to crime and incarceration. Our prison population reflects the combined efforts of all entities which seek to promote justice and mercy in our society.
The specific modes of working with our NBCUSA family will include training, teaching, and educational awareness.
