About The Prisoner’s Hope

Previously known as “Proclamation of the Word”, The Prisoner’s Hope ministry was founded by a former inmate, Darryll Davis, convicted of murder in 1990. During his 22 years of incarceration, he found the grace of God and was led to start an organization helping offenders and their families. The mission of The Prisoner’s Hope is to assist both men and women inmates, and their families, in their spiritual walk and in other practical transitions. Whether that be entering into incarceration, enduring their sentence, or integrating back into society, by the grace of God, we believe and know these prisoners and their families have hope.

Family Support

Our mission does not just involve assisting the incarcerated. This life-changing process causes a ripple effect in the lives of their wives, husbands, children, and/or parents. We are here to walk side-by-side the affected family members. Anywhere from finding legal or financial guidance to collecting donations for the basic needs of the children left behind when a parent is incarcerated.

How it works


The mentors at The Prisoner’s Hope are involved from the very beginning. We provide assistance to the offender and their family as they await trial, and guide them during court proceedings and sentencing. We help prepare all involved for the harsh reality of imprisonment, while always reminding them of the reality of their hope in Jesus Christ.


Once sentenced, our team walks each person through our detailed program involving education and spiritual growth. We believe it’s vital to be in frequent contact through in-person meetings and emails to ensure they don’t feel alone. During this time, we also mentor the family through the life changes that ultimately come due to a loved one’s incarceration.


Transitioning from imprisonment to the outside world can take a toll on both the offender and their family emotionally, practically, and spiritually. This tumultuous transition can be a lengthy process and can often lead back to arrest. We are here to make sure that does not happen as we prepare them prior to release and walk side-by-side with them after.

    From Executive Director, Darryll Davis I love this passage because of my own imprisonment. I understand how imprisonment can and does serve to further or advance the gospel for those Christ has used behind the walls. Many who have not seen such have asked: how can Paul's imprisonment have served to advance the kingdom? [...]

  • What is the kingdom of God?

    How would you answer if asked: What is the kingdom of God? Perhaps, thinking back on historical kingdoms, you might say any kingdom is defined as the territory over which a king rules. Since we understand that God is the Creator of all things (Gen 1-2), then God’s Kingdom must be the whole universe. It [...]

Grounds for Hope Coffee

Grounds for Hope Coffee was inspired by the needs we see day-to-day in the families of the incarcerated, especially the children. There are so many ways these families are financially affected, such as through legal bills accrued, basic needs for their children diminished, homes lost, etc. All profits go to this ministry and our efforts in helping those so gravely affected by the incarceration of a loved one. When you purchase Grounds for Hope Coffee, there is indeed hope in every cup.
