La Crosse County Jail Ministry

La Crosse Jail Ministry offers individual spiritual direction and rehabilitative support to offenders.

Small group and one-on-one sessions are a major focus of the Chaplain's duties.  Getting to know an inmate's personal needs and feelings are important in helping inmates achieve a change in outlook.


Area pastors and volunteers assist by leading inmates in Bible study groups and worship.


For those without funds, Jail Ministry provides writing materials, snacks, cards, and Bibles.  Inmates who are released and have no funds for transportation home are also provided assistance.
