Summit Vision and Purpose

CMCA is committed to hosting an annual Correctional Ministry Summit that offers training, inspiration and networking opportunities to those working with offenders, former offenders, victims, and families.  The purpose of each Summit is:

  • To equip correctional ministry leaders, chaplains, corrections administrators, program managers, and community agency administrators to more effectively serve the incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, victims, and their families through specialized workshops, networking, and resources.
  • To facilitate collaboration among organizations who serve those impacted by the criminal justice system.
  • To encourage churches, faith-based, and community organizations to more effectively serve the incarcerated, formerly incarcerated, victims and their families.
  • To provide a venue for visioning, training, and leadership development for formerly incarcerated persons and victims.

 The objectives of the Summit are as follows:

  • To provide instruction through specialized workshops
  • To provide inspiration through engaging plenary sessions
  • To facilitate the establishment of a network of resources

CMCA welcomes you to join us at this year’s Correctional Ministry Summit held in New Orleans, LA.  CMCA remains constant in its vision and purpose of the Summit and we pray that each year offers a new and fresh perspective for our attendees and builds them up in the work they are doing to fulfill the Great Commission.
