HARVEST PRISON MINISTRY
Harvest Prison Ministry began as an outreach of Hickory Grove Church to the inmates at Charles Bass Correctional Complex. While there were many church services available, and some mentoring, there was a real need for Bible study, discipleship, and solid biblical literature and for “the equipping of the saints to do the work of the ministry.”
Our vision is to see more men reconciled to God and their families, and to aide them both prayerfully and financially to re-enter society enabled by the grace of God to live godly and productive lives.
Christ has given the task of evangelism and discipleship to the Church. At Harvest Prison Ministry we are developing that Church behind prison walls. Essential to our ministry is a commitment and accountability to the visible Church. It is of first importance in our practice and teaching. The Church is never merely a means to grow, but rather as God’s ordained institution by which to proclaim the gospel. Through the Church Christians become more like Christ. It is in the context of the Church that all the means of grace by which we grow are available.
GraceWorks Ministries, Inc. was founded in 1995, when area concerned citizens and faith leaders came together and decided Williamson County needed a central place to send people who needed help with food, clothing and financial assistance. By pooling church resources with private and public sectors, GraceWorks was able to provide more help for many needs to better serve our community, rather than duplicating efforts. Today, GraceWorks has expanded upon these relationships to establish a referral network with other agencies to provide help for immediate needs and long-term resources. GraceWorks focuses on four areas—family support, instructional programs, seasonal needs and hunger prevention. Through its many programs, GraceWorks fulfilled 46,665 needs valued at $5.2 million in 2016.
We are a United Way of Williamson County agency and a member of Community Foundation of Middle TN, Second Harvest, Hands on Nashville and Center for Non-Profit Management.
