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:

(a) Conducting Discipleship Seminars;

(b) Providing Biblical instruction through Correspondence Studies; and

(c) Equipping women with tools and skills for successful re-entry.

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. We also provide backpacks filled with essentials to give to women releasing from correctional facilities to homelessness as well as serving other homeless populations through our program called #PackedHope.
 
Faith Seeds operates out of the Vineyard Church of Hopkinton, MA:  www.vineyardhopkinton.org.
