|ABOUT OUTMATE OUTREACH
OOPM was originally conceived in 1978 by a staff Volunteer Coordinators for Prison Fellowship at the federal prison in Ft.
Worth, Texas. Although there was no formal organizational structure, volunteers used their personal resources to minister to
families of inmates - those family members that were paying the price without being incarcerated.
OOPM was officially organized in 2003 and since then, has ministered to 100's of inmates in Texas, Louisiana, Missouri,
Arizona and California. Since 2016, OOPM has trained inmates with its copyrighted life coach training program.
In March 2019, Jeff Thomas, J.D., agreed to serve as President and Executive Director of Outmate Outreach.
|OUR SPIRITUAL COMMITMENT
Our commitment is to be a resource to all believers that are behind bars who serve by sharing their faith with others. We
cross all denominational lines, recognizing that the Spirit of God moves in many different ways. As such, we are not
affiliated with any church group or denomination, nor do we receive guidance, instruction or financial support from any
organization for the prison ministry. A customary fee is charged the general public for the training program.
