May 08, 2024

Marion Baptist Association has joined forces with The College at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, in partnership with the Florida Department of Corrections, to bring a beacon of hope to the women at Lowell Correctional Institution in Marion County. This pioneering program offers incarcerated women the chance to pursue a fully accredited Bachelor of Arts degree on-site, providing not just an education, but a pathway to personal transformation and a future of service. Please submit your contact information in the form below in order to receive more information about this volunteer opportunity. 

A Unique Educational Journey

The program at Lowell Correctional Institution is designed to offer more than just academic knowledge. It provides a well-rounded theological education that prepares the women not only for personal growth and fulfillment but also for a unique opportunity to serve. Upon completing the rigorous four-year degree program, which runs through fall, spring, winter, and summer semesters, graduates will be equipped and sent to different state prisons to serve as field ministers. This dual focus on education and service creates a powerful platform for change, both in the lives of the students and in the broader community.

To support this ambitious program, there is a significant need for volunteers to serve as mentors and tutors. The role of a volunteer in this context is multifaceted, offering academic support, personal guidance, and spiritual encouragement. Volunteers have the unique opportunity to walk alongside these women, helping them navigate their educational journey, overcome challenges, and grow in their faith. Whether you have a background in theology, education, or simply a heart for mentorship and service, your contribution can make a profound difference in the lives of these students.
