From the streets of Los Angeles, a former gang member was transformed by a miracle of God’s grace.  In hopes to reach out to the same kind of lost and hurting men he began the American Baptist Cook County Jail Ministry.  Andy Gonzalez started a powerful ministry that inspired the lives of thousands including inmates, officers, and volunteers.


Even after Andy’s death in 1996, these miracles still continue through the Cook County Jail Ministry.  Today, nearly 50 volunteers minister to jail inmates in 7 of 11 divisions at Chicago’s Cook County Jail.


Our volunteers minister every week at the jail.  For more information or if you would like to support this ministry please contact us at:

 

“I was naked, and you clothed me.

I was sick, and you took care of me.

I was in prison and you visited me.”


- Matthew 25:36
