Charles W. Colson
Prison Fellowship was founded in the United States in 1976 by Charles W. Colson, following his release from prison after serving a sentence for a "Watergate" related crime. Prior to his imprisonment, Mr. Colson had served as chief counsel for President Richard Nixon. During his own imprisonment, Mr. Colson had seen and experienced the difference that faith in Jesus Christ makes in the lives of people and he became convinced that the real solution to crime is found through spiritual renewal. Prison Fellowship was founded to bring together men and women from various Christian churches to share the love of God with prisoners, ex-prisoners, and their families. Three years after the formation of Prison Fellowship in the United States, representatives from similar organizations in England, Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the Bahamas met to form Prison Fellowship International (PFI) as an association of national Prison Fellowship organizations. Since 1979, Prison Fellowship International has grown to encompass national PF organizations in over 100 countries around the world. PFI is now the world’s largest and most extensive association of national Christian ministries working within the criminal justice field. Prison Fellowship's Core Values • Centered in Jesus Christ-in our obedience to the Risen Lord; • Grounded in the Bible-in our life and ministry; • Dependent on Prayer-as the foundation for ministry; • Partnered with the Church-as the biblical means for ministry; • Committed to Unity-with all believers in Jesus Christ as our Lord Jesus commands; • Compelled to Evangelize and Disciple-to bring Jesus Christ to the lost and to help people grow in Him; • Loving Others-by treating all people with grace, trust, and respect; • Seeking Excellence-by demonstrating integrity and wise stewardship.
