Inside/Out Chaplaincy (IOC) is an interdenominational evangelical Christian ministry that has been serving in Correctional Centres throughout Queensland for over thirty years. Our Chaplains minister in word and deed to prisoners; from Lotus Glen in the far North, through to Numinbah in the South.
Our mission is to see transformation, as brought about by the Gospel, in the lives of those incarcerated, continuing toward Christian maturity upon their release. We fulfil this by providing a quality chaplaincy service in which one or more IOC Chaplains are serving in every prison throughout Queensland.
Beyond the provision of pastoral care within the custodial environment, IOC is intentional about following up prisoners outside the prison walls. Inside Out Connec†ion is a unique partnership between church communities and IOC through which ex-prisoners can continue their growth as followers of Jesus. Every new Christian needs nurturing and discipleship to become a mature follower of Jesus. Church communities have a critical role in laying a firm foundation in the new life of exprisoners; providing great reasons to really leave the past behind!
Inside/Out Chaplaincy has always been a partnership of concerned Christians committed to ministering to prisoners while they are inside and when they are out; encouraging them to change from the inside, out.
