How Can I 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."
Join the Darrington Weekend Team: 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 submit an application for an upcoming Kairos weekend available at Participate or just Contact Us.
Attend a Closing Ceremony: Many team members have first attended a closing ceremony. The closing ceremony takes place on the Sunday afternoon of the weekend Kairos from 3-5 PM in the Darrington chapel. To attend a closing ceremony, you need to complete and submit an application form before the deadline posted on the form found at Attend Closing.
Be a Prayer Partner: All Kairos activities are covered with prayer. You can be a part of that prayer effort. As a physical symbol of your prayer we have prayer links that are pieces of brightly colored paper with each person’s name & home city. These links are joined to form a long chain that extends around the room where Kairos is held at the prison.
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.
Be a Ministry Financial Donor: All Kairos activities are funded by donations. Darrington Kairos is a 100% volunteer organization and part of Kairos Prison Ministry International, Inc. a 501(C)(3) not-for-profit corporation chartered in the State of Florida. You will be provided a receipt for your tax-deductible donation. See our Donations for details.
Be a Cookie Baker: We may need 3,000 dozen cookies for a typical Kairos weekend. Do the math... that's 36,000 cookies! Every inmate & staff member at Darrington gets at least a dozen cookies. Kairos 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 or contribution! Contact us for detailed instructions for types of cookies & the special way these are prepared.
