Bible Institute Of South Africa - Prison Ministry

The Christian Leadership Programme has been working within the prisons in the Western Cape to include: Helderstroom Maximum Security, Brandvlei Medium and Brandvlei Maximum. 

We have 26 students altogether (Helderstroom Max, Brandvlei Max and Brandvlei Med.)

Most of them are involved with some form of evangelical ministry within the prisons.  Preaching every morning in the communal cells; running Bible studies; prayer meetings and a great deal of one-on-one ministry.

Every week when Syd Eaby, our CLP lecturer visits any of the groups someone thanks the Lord for this Christian Leadership Program. Syd has been serving in the prison ministries for nearly 15 years but has shared about the impact after his involvement with the bringing the Christian Leadership Programme to them. 

He had a student from from Brandvlei Max say, “You must understand pastor there are many different spiritual programs in the prison but this one is making all the difference!”

We have had the privilege of graduating several students from the programme over the years, some of whom were released and are now serving the Kingdom in the general public.
