About The Prisoner’s Hope

Genesis of The Prisoners 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 the more 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.

To assist both men and women inmates, and their families, in their spiritual walk and in the more practical transitions.

Executive Director

Darryll Davis, director of The Prisoners Hope, is passionate about making a difference in a seemingly vast ocean of prison population and broken lives. When asked to summarize the Ministry’s work, he shared a favorite story, likening its endeavors to a little boy walking down the beach throwing starfish that had washed up onto the beach back in one at a time.

When approached by an elderly gentleman walking toward him, the little boy was asked, “Son, what are you doing?” The little boy replied, “I am throwing all of the starfish back in.” The elderly gentleman asked him to turn around and look back from where he just came from, saying, “There are too many. You are not making a difference at all, young man.” The little boy, unaffected in his endeavor, looked at the man and said, “It makes a difference to this one,” as he threw it back in.

Darryll was trained for the position he now holds by the hand of God over many years prior to his release. His passion for creating faith-based reentry assistance programs that mentor prisoners and their families is contagious and tireless. The goal is, and always will be, transforming lives…one at a time.
