The Jacob Institute is committed to bringing restoration and shalom (the way things should be) to those people and places that lack it. Our own restoration should lead to helping others be restored.
Bound Together is a ministry to inmates based on Hebrews 13:3, "Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering."
Bound Together originated with the incarceration of a dear friend and now ministers to approximately 150 inmates in county, state, and federal prisons across the United States. Bound Together is committed to finding ways to encourage, support, and believe in those who are incarcerated, including those who are released.
We mainly do this through letter writing, WORDpictures (www.wordpictured.com), and a yearly publication called "Wisdom, Discipline, and Understanding" where we utilize high quality photography, well-written spiritual articles, and journal and calendar pages in a magazine format.
We would be encouraged by your financial support to help prisoners find Jesus and the transformation He brings.
