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.
