Faith Seeds Ministries
Faith Seeds Ministries focuses on "proclaiming liberty to the captives," according to Isaiah 61:1. Our mission is to teach Biblical principles to women in prison that result in freedom, restoration, healing, and equipping for successful re-entry back into society.
This mission is achieved in several ways:
Our woman's prison ministry began in 2005. We have a heart to see the Lord set captives free, restore broken lives, and bring healing to women who are behind bars. We offer discipleship seminars, resources, and correspondence Bible Studies to incarcerated women across the United States.
The ministry's Ruth Project provides women with information and resources to help in the process of successful re-entry. This is done through our Human Trafficking Resource Information and our Housing Readiness Workshops and Information.
Faith Seeds operates out of the Vineyard Church of Hopkinton, MA: www.vineyardhopkinton.org.

Faith Seeds Update: Spring 2015
We are excited to announce that since the beginning of January, Faith Seeds has processed requests for over 60,000 Discipleship Resource Cards. The resources are available at no cost to correctional facilities for offender use. We continue to work on new resources and look forward to adding them to our series of easy to use, Scripture-based cards in both English and Spanish.

Christmas Across America
An initiative of Child Evangelism Fellowship
Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF), announces its new Christmas Across America outreach with the goal of telling children who have never heard the true meaning of Christmas. The initiative launches with the goal of reaching 100,000 children with the Gospel in December 2015.
“Can you imagine what would happen if 100,000 children are told the true meaning of Christmas for the first time this year? We believe that is what God is calling us to do,” says Moises Esteves, Vice President, USA Ministries for CEF. “We feel a great sense of urgency to bring the Gospel back to the center of Christmas celebrations across America. We want to mobilize others to join us.”
Child Evangelism Fellowship currently has offices in 192 countries and 400 chapters in the USA. These chapters train local volunteers to lead weekly Bible clubs and offer other outreach programs throughout the year. CEF USA estimates that they present the Gospel to over 800,000 children every year through current programming alone but they want to do more, particularly to reach those children who do not go to church and may have never heard the Gospel message.
The Christmas Across America outreach is seeking volunteers who will commit to teach and host a Christmas party for unreached children this Christmas season. With each commitment, CEF will provide free training and a party kit with everything needed to teach a Christmas Across America party including:
· Brand new CEF curriculum celebrating the true Christmas story of Jesus’ birth
· Songs and games to engage the children
· Ideas for locations and party preparations
· “Meet the King” Gospel booklets to send home with all participants
Esteves says, “It is important for these parties to be great fun for the kids but first and foremost they are going to hear that Christmas is about a wonderful, loving God who sent his only Son to be their Savior.”
To join the Christmas Across America movement, volunteers can learn more online at www.christmasacrossamerica.com or by calling their local CEF chapter. No experience is necessary. CEF will train and screen all teachers in compliance with their Child Protection Policy.
Faith Seeds Celebrates Ten Years of Prison Ministry
Our ten year anniversary banquet was a tremendous time of celebration. Lisa Boisclair (in photo above) led us in worship and the evening included dinner, a raffle, and video testimonies. We thank all those who volunteered, supported, donated and participated to make the night so memorable.
