About Cornerstone Prison Ministry
Cornerstone Prison Ministry is a Ministry of Valley Forge Baptist Temple located in Collegeville, PA. Over the past twenty years, the ministry volunteers have had the opportunity to minister to many inmates.
In 2011 the ministry had over fifty meetings, traveled many miles to various institutions, and have conducted services with over 10,000 men and women in attendance. Cornerstone Prison Ministry also has a weekly bible study at the State Correctional Institution in Chester, SCI Graterford, and Montgomery County Prison.
They also send King James Bibles and Bible Studies, as well as disciple inmates who want to change their life for Jesus Christ. The ministry is governed by a board of directors which includes Joseph Poley, John Bilboe, Scott Wilson and Randy Miley. The Lord continues to bless this ministry greatly as we serve Him through Valley Forge Baptist Temple.
The Prison Ministry is a volunteer process; even the preachers and Bible Study teachers are all volunteers. The only monies received are for reimbursement of expenses paid out by volunteers, primarily by the Board of Directors (John Bilboe, Joe Poley, Scott Wilson and Randy Miley) as they normally head up the groups attending.
On short trips, usually 1-2 hours away, depending on the time of day, refreshments, lunch or supper is paid for by the leader of the group who then is reimbursed for the cost, plus the cost for gas or tolls. Often these are paid for by the leader without reimbursement. For those with children who want to join us as we visit the prisons, we will assist with the payment for a baby sitter.
