We have the privilege to carry on the work Abe Knepp started at the Davies County Security Center . We participate in Bible studies & discipleship classes at the local county jail on Wednesday evening and Thursday, as well as conducting and/or coordinating Sunday morning services. Over the last few years, we have begun doing “Singspirations”; it is a time where most of the staff & residents from Fresh Start, as well as individuals from several local churches, sing and hand out snack to the offenders. We also continue Abe’s tradition of taking a few treats in to the offenders several times throughout the year.
We have established the Abe Knepp Memorial Bible fund as a channel for interested individuals to sponsor the Bibles which are distributed at the jail.
When Abe passed away in a plane crash in 2007, he was the chaplain at the jail . At that time, Virlin Yoder was the assistant minister at Fresh Start Chapel. He now serves as lead minister and chaplain at the security. Please pray for wisdom and discernment for him as he seeks to serve God and civil authorities, while trying to “seek and save” those that are lost.
