Church Planting Inside Prison Walls

This year, a brand new church was planted—the first of it’s kind in the whole country! Never before has someone planted a church inside a state prison! 

Eastlake Church and Community Christian Church are known for planting thriving churches where people can come and explore a relationship with Jesus. But in recent years they began to asking themselves, “What about all the people who can’t come to us?”

In partnership with Alpha, this year marks the launch of this one-of-a-kind church plant inside a prison near San Diego, CA. And they are using Alpha as the bridge between the prison and community. Eastlake is working to launch Alpha across all it’s 11 campuses and inside Donavan prison itself. This creates a shared experience and a support base for the prisoners from the surrounding 11 campuses. 

And this is only the beginning. The heart and drive behind this vision is contagious. Learn more about Alpha in Prisons

What about all the people who can’t come to us? What are we going to do for them?
