Epiphany Ministry

 

Is an ecumenical Christian Ministry for young men and women who are in the custody of Juvenile Justice Facilities. The weekend models on which it is based are: Chrysalis, Cross, Cursillo, Happening, Kairos Prison Ministry, Tres Dias, Vida Nueva and Walk to Emmaus. Our purpose is to manifest God's Love to incarcerated youth, known as "Stars" through a three day short course in Christianity and an on-going follow-up program. Each Epiphany weekend involves a team of adults and youth from the Christian community who work together to show the Love of God to those attending.

God's Love has been revealed throughout history, especially in the life and atoning sacrifice of Jesus Christ. In church history, Epiphany is traditionally celebrated on January 6th marking the arrival of the Magi in search of the Christ child. "Epiphany" is a Greek word meaning "appearance". The coming of the Magi marks the time when God is manifested on Earth to the entire world through Jesus Christ.
