Magic Valley Chaplains

Helping the Incarcerated Find Freedom Through Faith






Our Mission

“To identify, equip, place, and support individuals called to be chaplains of the incarcerated.”




Providing spiritual resources for those incarcerated

We provide regularly scheduled church services, as well as individual inmate visits. We supply Bibles, Bible study courses, spiritual study materials, and related spiritual non-fiction books to inmates. These are used to stock the TF County jail library, as well as to fill individual requests for these materials.

Our service dates: 

  • Tuesday Nights
  • Saturday and Sunday Mornings

"As a volunteer jail chaplain, I have seen the fruits of our labors many times.  Like when a former inmate comes up to me out in the community, with their spouse and children in tow, and happily tells me how they have a steady job, been restored with their family, and gotten plugged in to a good church.  That’s when we can really see some of the rewards of sharing the Good News with them."

Statement of Faith

I hereby affirm that I have read and agree with the statement of faith of the Magic Valley Chaplains, Inc.


Aftercare

Our ministry to inmates doesn’t stop once they are out of jail; Magic Valley Prison Aftercare provides temporary housing, assistance, spiritual and responsibility training for recently-released inmates (who qualify for our services) to become productive members of society.

Odds are that 70% of incarcerated inmates become repeat offenders and end up back in the prison system. Magic Valley Prison Aftercare works to improve these odds and show former inmates they can walk spiritually and successfully on the outside.
