Why Donate to Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc.

Reasons to Support BBFI including Testimonials of Chaplains and Inmates

For the most part, prison chaplains receive no funding from the government for the purchase of Christian material. And that is why they depend so much on the gifts of private charities, such as Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc.

Therefore, we asked some chaplains to tell you in their own words how our nationwide prison ministry has assisted them in their labor for the Lord. We also requested some of the inmates to tell you how we have helped them with their walk with Jesus.


“Through Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc’s abundant generosity of inspirational book-lets, pamphlets and newsletters, it’s had a definite positive impact on the inmate population, and we appreciate their faithful, dependable, God-loving charitable hearts. Money invested in God’s work, is never wasted; like energy, it may change its form, like water, or a mustard seed; but as long as God is allowed (by faith) to be the gardener, He will and does make it grow and multiply. And you know that God will not be outdone in generosity!”

Chaplain Bill Lindsey, Wm. Donaldson Facility in Bessemer


“The video and the tracts that you have given us are GREAT! The inmates are excited about the new material. I thank God for people like you. I pray that God continues to bless your ministry and all people associated with it. Keep up the good work!”

Chaplain Gerald Silliman, Hiland Mountain Corr. Center in Eagle River and Palmer Corr. Center in Palmer


“We are very cautious about the doctrine we present to the inmates, and I spent a lot of time reviewing the newsletters of Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. for Biblical truths before requesting them. I believe the doctrine presented is true and not of anyone’s personal opinion, and appreciate being able to give it to them in confidence that it won’t vary from the Word. I have seen growth since we started giving out the newsletters, and that’s a blessing!”

Chaplains Gerhard and Sheryl Griesinger, Mohave County Jail & Annex in Kingman


“Most chaplains I know have no funds that are allocated to them to purchase religious materials. The materials we get are all donated. Bibles and the other Christian materials that are contributed by Bible Believers Fellowship are the “seeds” for God’s power and grace to get into lives for behavioral change and spiritual peace.”

Chaplain John Hagan, Diagnostic Unit in Pine Bluff


“Thru BBFI, I have built a foundation, a sense of unhappiness with my past criminal behavior, and criminal thinking, and re-placing them with a sense of responsibility and development of empathy for others. I am learning to think in ways that are rational, realistic, and responsible. Most of all, I’ve found Jesus.”

Michael Sellers, inmate at Federal Correctional Institution in Lompoc


“Bible Believers Fellowship provides the balance that enables prisoners to obtain a whole knowledge of the Word of God and the Christian life. Many of these men are responding to the call of God on their lives to preach and teach the Good News. They have 24 hours a day to get the Word of God in them and they want any good material they can lay their hands on.”

Chaplain Dennis West, Bent County Correctional Facility in Las Animas


“Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. has been instrumental in providing key Gospel materials and Bibles to present to the more than 1,000 men transiting North Florida Reception Center monthly. Your labor of love is greatly appreciated. Please convey our thanks to the contributors of Bible Believers Fellowship - you truly are partners in the Gospel (Philippians 1:3-6).”

Chaplain Dennis Durant, North Florida Reception Ctr.-West Unit in Lake Butler

“My ministry has greatly benefited from Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc.”

Chaplain Kathy Ray, Lake City Corr. Facility in Lake City

“Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. has helped me in my spiritual growth and Bible knowledge through the publication of their newsletters and Bible tracts and booklets. Their scriptural literature and teaching of God’s word is helping me to learn and understand God’s plans and purpose for my life and knowing my Savior Jesus Christ. I’m very thankful for their ministry and pray that God will continue to provide in meeting their [financial] needs...”

Inmate Troy E. Sullivan, Jackson Corr. Institution in Malone

“Thanks to Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc., who donate some of this material needed, we are able to provide these men with the material needed to build a strong spiritual foundation before entering society. Please consider making a donation to this ministry that helps those that are in need.”

Chaplain Dolores De Long, Hamilton Correctional Institution Annex in Jasper


“My ministry here at WCCC has benefited from Bible Believers Fellowship’s support through newsletters, Bibles, and tracts that they donated prior to my chaplaincy. Since I became chaplain, they have faithfully donated newsletters in English and Spanish. Together with the joint effort of all, His servants including BBFI, God is saving and preserving souls each day. To Him be the power and the glory - now and forever.”

Chaplain Veronica Benkman, Women’s Community Correctional Center in Kailua


“The chapel program at any prison would be severely limited if it were not for the volunteer persons and ministries - like Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. - that support us. Many inmates will not talk with a chaplain, but will receive literature to read. That material, with the aid of the Holy Spirit, has potential to touch that life for Christ.”

Chaplain Del Vande Krol, Iowa State Penitentiary in Fort Madison


“We have received your newsletters for the past 3 years and the offenders are glad to have them to read. They also enjoy the books on Samuel Morris, since 90% of our offenders are black. Yours is one of two ministries that contribute items that I can take to our maximum security dorm for distribution to offenders. Our youths range from 13 - 21 years of age and many have had little or no contact with the church on the outside world. I appreciate very much your contributions and help in supplying materials to our offenders.”

Chaplain Dr. Gayle Dean, Jr., Swanson Correctional Center for Youth in Monroe


“For years, Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. have play a big role in my ministries and many other ministries with Bibles and literature, newsletters, everything is a blessing. The inmates look forward for your newsletter. I don’t have any means of financially helping you. However, I urge people to help maintain such a wonderful and blessed ministry. Please donate some Spanish Bibles. My flock consists of 40% Afro-American, 35% Spanish, 25% Anglo American and others.”

Chaplain Jesus Malave, M.C.I. Shirley Minimum Facility in Shirley


“Prisoners enjoy your newsletter. Also the videos are very good, the prisoners enjoy watching them. It is always helpful when outside organizations, such as yours, are willing to support prison ministries. The variety of material is always very helpful. You are in my prayers. Hopefully it will help because we do need your ministry.”

Chaplain James McKinley, Oaks Corr. Facility in Manistee

“You could never imagine how Bible Believers Fellowship has helped. I had not gotten on my knees for eighteen months. But I grew a thirst - a hunger for prayer during this time. Your first newsletter brought the reality of the demonic world alive for me. From that point on I have let nothing and no one stop me from praying. I hunger every month for your newsletter.”

Inmate Dennis Van Lee, Huron Valley Men’s Facility in Ypsilanti, transferred to Riverside Correctional Facility.


“Their newsletters in Spanish help me to witness to Latino inmates who don’t speak English, but are in need of encouragement and hope. The newsletter is an iceberg breaker between cultures, tongues and peoples. I’m sure Jesus approves of their ministry, which tells me others should be a greater part of this outreach. I send the “Spanish newsletter” to Latino friends in South and Central America when I’m done with them. The newsletters are having a global impact for Jesus. Keep up the faithful work.”

Inmate Tom Wilmas, Moberly Corr. Center in Moberly, transferred to Northeast Corr. Center in Bowling Green


“When I was serving time at the Mid-State Corr. Facility back in 1995 and 1996, at church services one Sunday afternoon, I picked up “The Good News Letter.” As I started reading what the Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. was witnessing over to me, my entire life changed. I cannot really express everything. But ever since that period, I started forgetting about myself, and put God first in my life. I still read copies of “The Good News Letter” today. Praise the Lord.”

Inmate Lindsey Tino Johnson, East Jersey State Prison in Rahway


“Because of your vision thru your ministry and concern, inmates receiving your literature and other material have been help with their daily reading and attending to chapel. When they get released, they go with desire to attend church outside, which is a victory and with a vision to continue serving the Lord Jesus Christ.”

Chaplain Roberto Rodriguez, Otis Banton Correctional Center in East Elmhurst

“We recently received religious literature including ‘The Good News Letter’, Bible tracts, post cards, tray cards, bookmarks, plus copies of New Testaments in Spanish and English. As there is no budget per se from our department for religious supplies and resources, the offering of donations aids us to not have to spend from personal resources for supplying religious materials for the inmates which are surely needed. We appreciate the donations received for the benefit of our prison ministry.”

Chaplain Judith Silva, Brooklyn Detention Complex in Brooklyn

“We are in need of many printed materials especially Bibles. Many of the men here do not stay very long so our on-going projects need resources to be replenished. We especially appreciate the Spanish materials [donated by BBFI] that many ministries can not help us with... Praise the Lord!”

Chaplain Oscar McLaughlin, Hudson Correctional Facility in Hudson


“BBFI is a tremendous source for many of the materials I desperately need in the performance of my ministry as a prison chaplain. Almost every inmate incarcerated in my facility has his own personal Bible. There are constant requests for the role model books and tracts provided by BBFI. “The Good News Letter” we receive is dependable theologically & presents God’s message in simplistic manner. Anyone who donates funds to Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. is making an investment in God’s kingdom. While the public out cry toward offenders today is, “Lock ‘em up and throw away the key,” we must remember penal institutions are very much a part of the harvest field.”

Chaplain Raeford C. Wiggins, Franklin Correctional Center in Bunn


“Because I do not receive any funding for Bibles and literature for the women, it has been truly a blessing to be able to acquire these for them from Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc. You are truly a Godsend!”

Chaplain Dawn Daly-Mack, Philadelphia Industrial Corr. Center and the Cambria Corr. Center in Philadelphia

“What a blessing it has been to give so much to the women. We get no money from the prison to buy Bibles, etc. Please keep on doing what you are doing. I see many women (and men) come to know and understand the Lord and the Bible because of Bible Believers Fellowship, Inc.”

Chaplain Elaine Babcock, Philadelphia Industrial Corr. Center in Philadelphia


“Your tracts have helped me to understand some scriptural truth that has been mis-understood by many and I wasn’t sure of before. For that I am very thankful. They’ve helped others here also. The tracts are good sound scriptural literature.”

Inmate Robert W. Key, Wynne Unit in Huntsville

“I have received Bibles, books, literature & videos from BBFI. All of these items help the inmates to understand God’s word and to grow in their faith. Many of these men have free time to read and it is a blessing to have Christian literature to place in their hands. There are other religious groups competing for the souls and minds of these men. This literature helps spread the gospel and sets the captives free.”

Chaplain M. Pickett, Hodge Unit in Rusk


“Bible Believers Fellowship has been there to supply any request we have for ministry tools, whether tracts, books, videos. Any church, organization, or individual will be blessed by the Lord greatly if you support this ministry because Jesus said, “I was in prison and you visited Me, hungry and you gave Me food, naked and you clothed Me. What you do for prisoners you do unto Me” (paraphrased by Chaplain Watkins). God is moving in the prisons of America. You can get in on the harvest benefits by standing in prayer and financial support of BBFI.”

Chaplain Robert M. Watkins, Huttonsville Correctional Center in Huttonsville
