Your Sponsorship Brings Hope to a Dark Place:

In prison, inmates are surrounded by some of the worst evils in the world. Hope is often lost, and despair and depression set in. Inmates are faced with ongoing violence, anger, hatred, strife, deceit, sexual immorality & assault, pornography, and all sorts of evil.


Eyes and Ears Are Open to Receive:

Many inmates hit rock bottom while in prison. At this juncture, the heart is open and the eyes and ears are ready to receive. This is a time where real change can occur. But unfortunately, darkness and evil tends to be the only direction they see. What if they saw hope? What if they received a Bible?

Get a Bible Into a Prisoner’s Hands & it Will Change Their Life.

The Word of God is sharper than any two-edged sword. It has the power to change lives. It is the single most influential and powerful tool to bring a prisoner out of darkness. The government spends millions of dollars each year on correctional programs to change the prisoners behavior, but not many are permanent solutions. Jesus is a permanent solution.

See Our Mission

For just $25/mo, you can change 12 lives this year by helping a prisoner come in direct contact with their Lord and Savior through the Word of God.


Change One Life & You’ll Change Many.

Children Follow in Their Parents Footsteps

  • According to the Department of Health and Human Services, children of incarcerated parents are 7x more likely to be locked up one day.
  • And according to the Women’s Prison & Home Association, Inc., Children of offenders are five times more likely than their peers to end up in prison themselves. One in 10 will have been incarcerated before reaching adulthood.”

Staggering Statistics

  • There are approximately 7.4 million children who have a parent in prison, in jail, or under correctional supervision.
  • The average age of children with an incarcerated parent is 8 years old
  • Out of all inmates, 93.4% of them are male.

No Father Figures

  • The reason why many of these children follow in their parents footsteps is because they don’t have proper supervision, or proper parenting. They often bounce around from relative to relative, unable to maintain consistency in their life.
  • Studies have proven that the lack of a father figure in a child’s life can have disastrous effects on the child’s development. Fathers are necessary to bring balance to a child’s life.

Save the Father, Save the Family

Did you know that when the Father of a household is genuinely transformed by Jesus there is an 83% chance that his whole household will come to know Christ?

The ripple effect of a father coming to know Jesus is nothing short of incredible. This impact keeps children from following their fathers into prison, and helps them become who God made them to be.

When you give $25/month for a Bible, your gift reaches first into the prison, and then outside the walls of the prison, to his family. Your gift helps reduce the statistical chance of his son or daughter going to prison by approximately 300 percent.

“The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas…and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?” 31 They replied, “Believe in the Lord Jesus, and you will be saved–you and your household.” 32 Then they spoke the word of the Lord to him and to all the others in his house…then immediately he and all his family were baptized.”

– Acts 16:29-33

I received my AWESOME Bible yesterday. What a fantastic blessing your ministry is!! Thank you so much. God is good, all the time.

Sean, Incarcerated in Colorado

Susan , Incarcerated in Florida

I wanted to let you know I received my beautiful Bible. Thank you so much for your faithfulness to all of us incarcerated. As Jesus said in Matthew 25, In as much as you did it to one of the least of these my brethren, you did it to me. May God continue to bless all of you at HEART of America as you continue to reach out and touch the world with the love of Jesus.

William , Incarcerated in Georgia

It begin to thank you for this beautiful Bible. I love it! And I really love the historical notes and the way it is illustrated through and through. This may sound crazy, but I think it means more to me because of the wait. I don’t know, but it seems almost like I grew into it. Please let the people whose donations and time were spent making this possible know that I really appreciate it and that I will be adding them to my prayer list. I hope one day to be able to help someone the way you have helped me, not only with this Bible, but also with your letters over the years. You have given me a great gift.

Jarrod , Incarcerated in Arkansas

I was placed in the AR prison system for selling meth. I was crushed and very depressed. The thought of being away from my family, especially around the holidays, was a lot to bare. The first month of intake, you are in a single man cell in complete solitude. The only reading material allowed is a Bible. As I started reading, something drove me to focus on the New Testament. Being Christmas, it felt right to have a better understanding of Jesus. It ended up being the best Christmas I have ever had because I spent it with Jesus, just me and him. It was the first time in my life that I could hear God speaking to my heart, and I’ve had Him there ever since.

How Does Prison Sponsorship Work?

Your monthly sponsorship gives us the ability to send a bible to a new prisoner on our waiting list every 30 days.

The bibles cost us $20 to buy wholesale from our ministry partner, and then $5 to ship. So your $25 gift directly covers a new bible each and every month.


Step 1: Become a Sponsor

Fill out our donation form and become a monthly partner at whatever amount you’d like to give. Or help by giving a one-time donation. Your tax-deductible contribution of just $25 a month connects an incarcerated prisoner with a brand new, high-quality leather-bound study bible.


Step 2. Our Volunteers Pack and Ship

On a monthly basis, our volunteers get together to source, package, ship, and ensure the delivery of a bible to a prisoner on our waiting list of 3236 inmates.


Step 3. New Prisoner Receives a Bible

The bibles go through rigorous security and into the hands of an awaiting prisoner. We stay in contact with the prisoner and help them grow in their faith.


For some inmates, this bible will be the only gift or piece of mail they receive this year. You cannot imagine the joy you bring a man or a woman when they receive their bible.


We currently have 3,236 prisoners on our Bible waiting list.

let’s reduce that number.
