 “Let God Arise and let His enemies be scattered”......Psalm 68:1


I'm so grateful to Christ Jesus for making me adequate to do this work. He went out on a limb, you know, in trusting me with this ministry. I Timothy 1:12 (MSG) *Celebrating over 25+ years of ministry to those behind bars in our local jails in Montgomery, Alabama. A special thank you to the volunteers and all of you who have prayed for, encouraged and supported me/us in this ministry over the years.


Let God Arise Ministries Inc.(LGAM) established September 1992 www.letgodarise.org as outreach mission in accordance with Matthew 25:36...Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick , and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
LGAM serves the Montgomery Alabama County Detention Facility(MCDF) & Montgomery City Jail & Federal inmate population housed in both the County & City Jails as full time volunteers and no compensation received from county, city or state. LGAM fully funded and supported by individuals, business, church and private support.

LGAM recommends inmates upon receiving Jesus Christ as Lord & Savior to begin immediately bible study & to form study groups within the cell blocks. We recommend four steps for  Christian growth and spiritual maturity: 1) Prayer: Talk with God everyday including Him in all major or minor decisions 2) Daily Bible Readings beginning with the Gospel of John. 3) Fellowship with Christian Believers and have an accountability to those who believe in Jesus Christ 4) Share personal testimony with others about what God is doing in their life.   When inmates are transferred to Department of Corrections (DOC) we recommend to get involved with their Chapel programs and to meet with Facility Chaplains. Upon release or EOS (end of sentence) we recommend to find and get involved with on fire Christian believers where they live. LGAM has over the years as alternate sentencing programs referred inmates to: Teen Challenge, Canaan Land Boys Home, Wellspring for Women, Love Lady Women’s Center, Naomi House, Dobbs House, Christian AA Groups or NA. LGAM helped with getting an AA and NA chapter in both the County and City Jails.

Have a Blessed Thanksgiving & Christmas Season.  In His Agape Love always, Tom & Beth
