In First Samuel, David gathers "the discontented, the rebels, the outlaws" together into the Army of God. These men were trained and encouraged to become mighty soldiers – great “men of valor.” By working with prisoners in the CCA Prison and the Charles Bass Correctional Complex, the MOV ministry teaches men how to make real changes so they can begin new lives once they are released.
Nationally, 70% of men released from prison will return. However, through biblically-based programming, aftercare/re-entry services and the involvement of committed volunteers, Men of Valor’s success rate beats both national and statewide statistics. In fact, Men who complete MOV's Phase I Six month Aftercare/Re-entry program, the recidivism rate is below 15%.
Our Mission Statement
Men of Valor is committed to winning men in prison to Jesus Christ and discipling them. Our purpose is to equip them to re-enter society as men of integrity — becoming givers to the community rather than takers.
