Many Prison Ministries use former professional athletes motivational speaking platforms to urge inmates toward making positive lifestyle choices.
Ring of Champions (ROC) – Ring of Champions – division of Bill Glass Prison Ministry – uses mentor-youth relationships to create positive changes in the hearts of America’s at-risk youth. By holding events similar to those in Champions for Life’s Prison Ministry, courts order youthful offenders to attend a Ring of Champions event as an alternative to juvenile detention. At these events youth may choose to be paired with a mentor who will meet with the youth to develop a close relationship built on trust. This trust leads many youth to changing the poor decision-making choices of their past into positive choices that last into their future.
