Celebration Fellowship Prison Church
Andrew and Gail Hanson
Ionia, Michigan


Andy & Gail HansonCelebration Fellowship is a partnership involving members of churches in the Grand Rapids area who visit, worship, and assist in the development of an inmate church at the Ionia Bellamy Creek Correctional Facility. Members of local churches visit, worship, and provide support for prisoners as inmates minister to one another. The prison church members are active in worship as they serve by being ushers, readers, praying, assisting in communion, helping with music, setting up and taking down worship areas and in offering donations for an outside mission. The church has a leadership team made up of prisoners inhabiting a "kind of deaconal role," says Hanson. "They are the boots on the ground during the rest of the week. If a guy has a problem, they go to one of them."

Please consider a gift! This ministry is funded in part by Home Missions. You may give to this ministry directly by contacting Celebration Fellowship at pastorandyhanson@gmail.com . Or, give to the ministry's Home Missions grant at www.crhm.org.
