By April 28, 2016

International (MNN) — Crossroad Bible Institute is an international prison ministry dedicated to reaching inmates with the truth of God’s Word and the love of God’s people.

Recently, we had a chance to speak with Communications Director Aaron Mueller about what motivates CBI’s staff and volunteers: “Our passion is to equip and engage the Church, and give them an outlet to do ministry behind bars.

“We try to make it easy [by] allowing them to correct inmates’ Bible studies. They’re able to correct their (inmates’) lessons and also send back a letter of discipleship, a letter of encouragement.”

While CBI’s outreach spans across 50 U.S. states and six continents, Mueller reminds us that the real power of God’s work in the lives of their 30,000 students happens one-on-one.

“The most impacting part of what we do is the relationship that is built exchanging letters,” Mueller explains, “and hearing about how God brings together people from Pella, Iowa, with a person on the south side of Chicago, who had a very rough upbringing and lands in prison, and

“Just seeing how God works between two radically-different people…when the Holy Spirit’s involved, amazing things can happen.”

Please pray that God would guide Crossroad Bible Institute in their ongoing development of curriculum, and that more prisoners’ lives would be changed by the power of God’s Word and His Spirit.

  • Thank you so much for featuring CBI again. I have been a tutor for 2.5 years, and first started I think because of an article on CBI here in MNN. Very fulfilling; was my main ministry for two years and still is a very important one given me by the LORD. Again, thanks.
