Overland Park Church of Christ Re-Entry Ministry
Through this ministry, members of the OP Church of Christ mentor men and women who are close to their release date and will be re-entering society soon.
We have a total of 30 men and women from OP who are mentors. We have women mentors who go to the Gardner Detention Center and to the Topeka Women’s Correction Facility. Our men mentors go to the Lansing Correction Facility.
Approximately half of our mentees are now released and living in our neighborhoods. Most of the mentors are still in contact with the mentees who have been released.
The Overland Park Church of Christ Re-Entry Ministry, a Leading Organization of the Kansas Department of Corrections, has the largest number of mentors across the state of Kansas.
Our ministry was recognized in 2013 as the most outstanding Leading Organization, mentoring men and women in the re-entry ministry. The Overland Park Church of Christ is on the KDOC website.
