About CMCA

Correctional Ministries and Chaplains Association (CMCA) is a professional organization, founded in May 2011, through which Christians can celebrate their faith and passion for correctional ministry with other individuals, organizations, and churches; develop professionally through online resources, trainings, and certifications; and be inspired through uplifting journal articles, networking, and conferences.

Our Members

Members of CMCA are united to provide the highest quality of spiritual care to those who are incarcerated, have been incarcerated or detained, family members of the incarcerated, those affected by injustice, and those connected to correctional care. CMCA members are committed to providing spiritual care that is representative of the biblical model found in Jesus Christ’s ministry. As a collaborative team of evangelical Christian caregivers, CMCA desires to more effectively build the Kingdom of God and help humanity secure greater peace and safety (Ephesians 4:16, 3 John 1:8).

HEAR FROM OUR MEMBERS

¬†Because of the vast information CMCA provides, I can help inmates plan and strategize for the future, whatever the topic might be, to insure a more successful transition and recovery process. I can do this through ongoing discussions, but can also link them to resources. I can’t imagine not being a CMCA member!

The CMCA Summit is a GREAT asset to our ministry! This is the 3rd year our team had attended and each year we come home with something or several things to implement which have helped us become more professional and effective in pointing people to Jesus!
