Mr. Scott Davis, chaplain and CMO executive director
Chaplain Davis has been involved in jail and prison ministry for over 30 years being involved at both the state and local levels. He was appointed by Sheriff Gary Steed as the Chaplain Coordinator of the Sedgwick County Detention Facility. Mr. Davis is also the Executive Director of Christian Ministries to Offenders, Inc. (CMO). He is passionate about seeing people restored to their rightful place in Christ Jesus! Those that know him say that he is "24/7" committed to his work in Christ.
A few years ago, God impressed Mr. Davis to serve in full-time ministry. He closed the doors on his business and accepted his present position with the jail and CMO. Since his tenure began, Mr. Davis has been instrumental in expanding the work of CMO from 11 to 25 chapel services and bible studies per week. Additionally, there are plans to expand the chapel services at the Sedgwick County Work Release Facility as well as develop a transitional reintegration program for that site as part of CMO's "aftercare" program.
Because of the efforts of Chaplain Davis and CMO there are no longer inmate waiting lists for chapel services. CMO is able to meet the spiritual needs of those that desire such service. Presently, over 50 CMO volunteers are involved in providing this service, according to Chaplain Davis. CMO continues to look to our Heavenly Father for these needed volunteers and the financial resources to continue the Lord's work.
Ms. Tina Gilmore-Williams,
Pastor Tina has been with Christian Ministries to Offenders, Inc. for over seven years. She has two earned bachelors' degrees: one in Pastoral Studies and the other in Not-for-Profit Management. She manages the "aftercare" program for CMO as well as being the Assistant Chaplain. Additionally she conducts chapel services on a regular basis and is the pastor of "NU Heart- NU Start Ministries, Inc.," a ministry to newly released inmates who lack a permanent church home. Her desire is to see them successfully reintegrate into the community, as it is well understood that maintaining their walk in the Lord is foundational to that success. Because of Pastor Tina's unique experiences in counseling and mentoring the incarcerated she is a "difference-maker" and CMO greatly acknowledges her service and leadership.
Mrs. Sandra Kasper, program director
Christian Ministries to Offenders is privileged to have Sandy as a member of the staff of Christian Ministries to Offenders. Several months ago Sandy stepped into the position that was previously held by Raven Williams who resigned from CMO to pursue her education at Wichita State University.
Sandy is both the program director and office manager for CMO. In addition to her oversight responsibilities, she has responsibility for completing reports, the scheduling and managing of religious services and bible studies, inputting data into the computer, responding to inmate requests, answering the phone, etc., etc.
Her most recent employment was with TSS, Inc in Newton as a receptionist and client accounting manager, but she also has served as a receptionist for Vineyard Church here in Wichita. Sandy knows that her true love is ministry, thus, her reason for coming to CMO. Praise the Lord.
