Taking Matthew 25:36, “I was in prison and ye came unto me,” as their raison d’etre, volunteers from the LaRue County Christian Jail Ministry visit and worship with inmates of the county jail in Hodgenville three evenings each week.

“The jail ministry has over 50 ministers,” said Jenn Mayfield, ministry coordinator since 2010. “Most are laity; some are ordained ministers and some, licensed.”
