How You Can

Be a Prayer Partner


All Kairos activities are covered with prayer. You can be a part of that prayer effort.  It is important that your prayer is documented since the inmates are shown a visual representation of all those praying for their Kairos weekend.  You can’t imagine the impact it has knowing the community of faith is praying for them.  Contact us! You can find many of our prayer vigils on,,  OR email our Agape Chairperson.  

Be a Team Member


 Kairos volunteers come from all walks and strata of life. 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 a Kairos team, go to Where We Serve and contact the Advisory Council Chairperson to inquire about how you can get involved, Not all team members serve inside correctional institutions. Kairos Outside weekends are usually held at church camps (and similar facilities). Check out the Where We Serve page for more information on locations.  

How Can You Help?


  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."  

Be a Cookie Baker


We may need up to 5,000 dozen cookies for a typical Kairos weekend. Do the math... that's 60,000 cookies! Homemade cookies are a tangible expression of Christian love and an indication of God's concern for a group of people who seldom encounter either in the course of their daily lives. Your loving sacrifice will provide "bread" that shines the Light of God's Grace into the darkest corners of a prison unit. May God bless you for the gift of baking! Email our Agape Chairperson for more details or if you have questions. 

Be a Ministry Financial Donor


 Add a gift of money so we can continue serving. All Kairos activities are funded by donations. If you would like to support this ministry by your donation, make your check payable (any amount is appreciated!) to Kairos Prison Ministry International and send it to our State Treasurer at:  

Kairos of North Carolina  PO Box 2543  Shelby, NC 28151 

or e-mail our State Financial Sectretary for more information. 

Be a Support Volunteer


  Each Kairos retreat weekend has opportunities for outside support, such as baking cookies, writing letters of support, or preparing meals. Get your church's Sunday school classes to color placemats for mealtime in prison. Email our Agape Chairperson for more details or if you have questions.
