How Can I Get Involved?
We need your help. There are many opportunities for you to serve in this ministry. All we ask is that you have a willing heart and a spirit of obedience and you can play a crucial role in God's ministry of Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives and Impacting the World. Here's some basic information to help you "get involved."
Become an Inside Team Member
The people on our team come from all walks of life but we have one thing in common: a love of God along with a desire to be part of God's Kingdom here on Earth. They all share a desire to follow Christ's admonition of Matthew 25:36, "I was in prison and you visited me." If you feel God's call to minister to the incarcerated the female family member of someone incarcerated, as a part of our Kairos team, contact us to inquire about how you can get involved. Not all team members serve inside Buckingham Correctional. There are lots of critical roles outside the prison setting.
Every weekend, the prison residents are amazed at the HUGE amount of cookies they see. The thing that amazes them is there are people out there that love them enough to bake them cookies. Every inside team member is required to bring 100 dozen cookies on the Weekend. We bring in about 30,000 cookies into the prison on each Weekend. The Kairos cookie recipes are easy to follow.
Be On the Cook Team
A Kairos Weekend simply cannot function without the Cook Team. The Cook Team is our main on-the-Weekend support. They open up the home base (1st Baptist Church Dillwyn), make coffee, breakfast, and dinner for us. They also clean up after each meal. They are the favorite members on our Kairos Team on every single Kairos Weekend!
Be a Prayer Partner
We have a "round the clock" prayer vigil for every Weekend. The Prayer Vigil gets filled out and a huge poster is hung up in the gym wall every Weekend. It too is a source of amazement to the prison residents.
This ministry is funded 100% by donations. Each Kairos Weekend costs about $3500 to run. If you'd like to help us financially, you can write a check to Kairos of Virginia AND place in the memo: BKCC. Also, please feel free to contact us directly if you have any questions before donating.
