CMO relies heavily on volunteers to minister to inmates at the Sedgwick County Detention Facility in chapel services, Bible studies, and one-on-one counseling; also to perform data entry, office tasks, and report preparation for the sheriff's office.
Thankfully, many volunteers have served for years in these capacities. However, additional volunteers are always needed.
Volunteer Opportunities in the CMO Workroom
Data Entry / Keyboarding
CMO activity must be documented electronically for accountability to the Sheriff's department. For Chapel Services and group Bible studies, this means names of inmates who have requested chapel services, as well as those who have attended. CMO holds two or three services each day.
Direct Ministry to Inmates
Lead chapel services or group Bible studies; perform one-on-one Bible study, prayer and ministry in the ministerial booths.
