The foster care-to-prison pipeline , by Reighley Baugh

When we started John 4 Ministries it was our intention to help kids in hard places. We quickly realized that upwards of 90% of the kids we serve are in foster care. Continued reform and overhaul, better education for foster parents and providers and addressing the level of incarceration discrimination in our society would help fight the injustice of imprisoning children who are abandoned not only by their families, but by the systems that were created to protec...

[07/01/17]   Watch for our next service project! We will be gathering and organizing school supplies for kids in foster care.

[08/14/16]   Had a great day celebrating the end of a summer program with some teens in prison. We had what they call "free" pizza, soda, cookies and milk. We've never seen girls eat the way these girls did. They asked us to pray over them before we left. These girls have found a special place in our hearts.

[07/22/16]   We are wrapping up a self esteem training program for some teens housed in an adult prison. These ladies have worked so hard to see the beauty within themselves. We are planning a party to celebrate their success.

[05/30/16]   Friday night we had the pleasure of hanging out with some teen girls whose life choices landed them in an adult prison facility. Our goal is to give them hope and help them see they can make good decisions. We are so excited to watch them learn how very valuable they are!
Saturday we helped another ministry host a family day at a women's prison. We were honored to present kids church for them, and 3 little girls accepted Christ during the alter call.
This holiday weekend has been a huge success!

[05/14/16]   Last night we ministered in a shelter for women. It was an amazing evening of testimonies and worship. No matter what your current situation God is still on the throne and He knows your name!

[05/08/16]   Loving people where they are isn't easy but it's possible. It's what God has for us and we can do it.

[05/01/16]   Check out this amazing fundraiser. is donating 100% of the profits from the sale of their new tote bags to John 4 Ministries.

[04/17/16]   Yesterday we had the privilege of helping another ministry. They hosted a day with dad at a prison, for many of the offenders this was the first time to interact with their children since their arrest. We presented kids church for them and 7 kids accepted Christ for the first time. What an amazing weekend!

[04/13/16]   Pray for our teams today, we picked up a new facility and will be hosting kids church tonight for a group of homeless children.

[03/27/16]   Can't think of a better way to spend Easter Sunday than ministering to hospitalized teens struggling with life issues. Because of Him they can overcome!

[03/20/16]   We are looking for used Vacation Bible School materials. Many of our ministry oppertunities for kids are in a VBS format and we love new (to us) material.
