Regional Psychiatric Centre

DARRYL:

I have also had the privilege of helping lead the men’s RR Prison Team at the monthly chapel service at RPC (Regional Psychiatric Centre), which is a therapeutic hospital for prisoners comprising mainly of people struggling with mental illness.

For the Men’s Chapel, we have the opportunity to share the Gospel through a time of worship, a sermon and altar call. Our coffee times after are also a chance to pray for people or just enjoy each other’s company. There is a hunger for God amongst the inmates. They are always grateful that we show up to minister to them. There are ten more volunteers awaiting clearance. Praise God!

We look forward with anticipation as our team for Woman’s Chapel begins this Fall in ministering monthly as well, under Jodi’s direction. We have a strong team of women ready to serve the female inmates.


Volunteer Testimonials

Ron:

I have been associated with RR for the past seven plus years. I like the fact that RR is interacting with various churches and people in the city. It’s interdenominational and uniting ministries. I was first trained in the downtown RR office with approximately 15 other volunteers. I have served briefly as a volunteer at RPC and have helped Jodi in her counselling with a deliverance session. I serve mainly in the capacity of providing prayer and moral support. I pray regularly for more volunteers, leaders and financial support for RR. It was a very special to be a part of Jodi’s Ordination Service at Elim Church this past July.

MAYNARD:

I met Darryl and Jodi through the Elim Choir. I am part of the RR Prison Outreach Team. I assist in preaching and leading worship in the RPC Men’s Chapel Service monthly. The Prison Team have the opportunity to welcome the Holy Spirit into a place that is considered to be Satan’s territory. It is my prayer that God’s Word, whether in word or song, will change lives for eternity.

MICHIELLE:

I came across RR Ministry through my daughter but have come to know Darryl and Jodi as people after God’s own heart; like David. I wanted to contribute in any way I could, so I serve in fundraising, and asked to serve with The Lighthouse ministry as homeless people are always on my heart and RR ministry offered me an opportunity to share my faith. Some of my favourite moments are praying with the residents at The Lighthouse. Although prison ministry is new, it is one of the most awesome of opportunities that the ministry had afforded me to witness. I love all that they do to spread the Word and I wish I could contribute more. I am 100% behind them in ALL that they are trying to accomplish! I can do ALL things through Christ who strengthens me. So happy to share in this ministry.
