The Community Corrections Committee at David L. Moss will host the Second Annual Community Connection Conference September 17 with faith-based ministries and organizations for pastors who seek help in dealing with church members who have been arrested or have been in jail.
God’s Shining Light Church, 9897 E. 11th St., will host the conference and there is no cost (a love offering will be taken).
The main topic will be how to assist someone coming out of jail or prison and their transition back into society to become productive, responsible citizens.
The purpose is to break the cycle of crime, arrest, incarceration and return to crime.
The organizations will reveal how those released from jail can get access to transportation, food, clothing, housing, medical care, employment and education.
The conference coordinator is Chaplain Steve Bradshaw of the Tulsa County Sheriff’s Office.
He runs the religious program/counseling efforts at the Tulsa County Jail. He can be reached at 918-596-8972.
The conference is from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and includes a luncheon.
