Angel Tree® Christmas is a Prison Fellowship program that connects parents in prison with their children through the delivery of Christmas gifts. In most cases, local church volunteers purchase and deliver gifts and the Gospel to children in the name of their prisoner-parent. Many churches make an annual commitment to this highly rewarding program and recognize it as a way to care for some of the most overlooked members of our communities.
Children of Prisoners Program
There are no publicly funded prison chaplains in Albania. Prison Fellowship Albania (Shkbsh) has a vision to see a church in every prison. Towards this we are supporting nine chaplains with an additional six soon to join.
Our Dream Academy offers 30 teenagers with one of their parents in prison a challenging, enriching educational 4-year program to find and realize their dreams.
The Prisoner’s Journey
The Prisoner’s Journey is a transformational, evangelism and discipleship program that challenges prisoners to learn for themselves who Jesus said he is, why he came to earth, and what he calls them to do.
Week of Prayer
The Annual Week of Prayer can be observed at any time during the year. The week is designed as a special occasion for Prison Fellowship to communicate and connect with churches and the community in order to focus on ministry among prisoners, ex-prisoners, the families of prisoners, and victims of crime.
