BTS Prison Initiative and Bibb County Correctional Learning Center

Since 2017, BTS has operated a full Master of Biblical Studies program (and it’s Certificate version), at Bibb County Correctional Facility. As of the Spring of 2022, we have graduated 20 men from the program. These men have either remained at Bibb to help run our partner ministry, Jumpstart AL to fight recidivism, or they are sent out as missionaries and evangelists into the other prison camps of the Alabama Department of Corrections.

The Director of the BTS Prison Initative is Dr. Thad James, Jr. He can be reached via email HERE.
The Coordinator is Pastor Mitch Haubert, Senior Pastor of Brent Mission Church and Executive Director of Jumpstart AL Ministries.

BTS must raise $70,000 annually to support this work that reaches the darkest places in Alabama. If you or your church would like to partner with us you can contact President Reeder at [email protected] or you can donate by clicking
