Hundreds of women inmates got baptized by God Behind Bars Ministry at a Denver correctional facility.
Hundred of Inmates
At a correctional facility in Denver, Colorado, 265 women surrendered their lives to God and were baptized. God Behind Bars facilitated the baptism and wrote the amazing news on their Instagram account alongside some pictures from the phenomenal event.
“265 female inmates BAPTIZED at our Denver Women’s Correctional Facility Many of the women gave their lives to Jesus and were baptized on the spot! REVIVAL BEHIND BARS!! Thank you @redrockschurch / @redrocksoutreach,” God Behind Bars wrote on Instagram.
An inmate named Sunshine shared her thoughts about the baptism saying that she “felt surrounded by family, and that’s what made the experience significant and meaningful.”
God Behind Bars is a prison ministry that partners with churches and correctional facilities to reach the lost. Founded by Jake Bodine, it started in 2009 through a worship service at a Nevada correctional. The CEO and founder explained that during that moment, powerful worship with the inmates happened.
“Our team began to dream, what if we were able to reproduce this in 5,000 prisons around the world,” Jake said.

From there, they started doing prison worship services across the United States.
“We were able to launch in prisons in Alaska, Colorado, Florida, and Texas,” Bodine explained. “Wardens began to tell us that the culture in the prison is changing every single day, that the men and women in the prison are improving their outlook on self-worth. We’re watching inmates and families be restored for the very first time. The most common thing our team hears is that for one hour, they didn’t feel like they were in prison.”
Through this ministry, thousands of inmates got to know Jesus Christ and even gave their lives to Him.
“We have seen hundreds of inmates give their lives to Jesus in the last two months,” the group wrote.
