Crossroads' Prison Ministries
MCC East Coast and Crossroads developed the idea of Prisoner Care Kits after a 2015 MCC learning tour regarding mass incarceration. Crossroads' Chaplain Ronald Muse was one of the key leaders. For more information, click on the "mcc prison care kits" link on our home page.
For too many young men in Fairhill like Abdul Johnson, (see his tattoo on the right) there is "NO WAY OUT!"
Pastor Ronald Muse, however, offers people in prison, "a way out!" He is a central part of Crossroads' prison ministry, and with support from Mennonite Central Committee, Pastor Ron serves as Chaplain in the Philadelphia Detention Centers. He leads Bible studies, organizes worship services, and counsels inmates and staff. He is also there in the 'hood when inmates are released, challenging them and encouraging them.
He and Pastor Juan planted Christ Centered Church in December 2012 with the particular situation of ex-offenders in mind. "Transformed people transform people!" is their motto, and their conviction.
