ANGOLA – The annual revival at the Louisiana State Penitentiary is several months away but those wanting to participate in evangelistic efforts there must register by March 25.
Every year, around 150 Louisiana Baptists participate in the opportunity to share the gospel with the 6,000 men, one-on-one, who are in the facility. Worship services also are scheduled to take place in the camp chapels on the prison grounds.
This year’s revival begins at 3 pm on Friday, April 10 and ends at 3 pm on Saturday, April 11.
Dinner on Friday and breakfast and lunch are provided on Saturday. Housing is provided as well in the state police training facility on the grounds to the first 100 men who turn in their Department of Correction clearance forms to the Louisiana Baptists Evangelism Office.
Women may attend the worship services but cannot participate in the personal evangelism efforts in the camps. In addition, women must obtain housing in an area hotel.
Everyone must complete a new Department of Corrections clearance form, even if participants turned in one last year.
Forms must be emailed to Dianne.York@LouisianaBaptists.org or faxed to Dianne York’s attention by Feb. 25 to 318.445.0055.
Anyone attending the revival should review the rules for volunteers inside the prison. A document can be downloaded at louisianabaptists.org/angola-prison-revival-2015/.
