Ministry Volunteers

Thank you so much for your interest in becoming part of our team.  We are searching for called and qualified individuals to enhance the ministry at Riverside Regional Jail, and join the 75 ministry volunteers already giving 350 hours monthly to provide religious services to inmates & staff at Riverside.

The Chaplain directs the religious services to the inmate population at Riverside.  Services consist of both individual ministry and group religious activities.  There are a number of ongoing services and special events available to the inmate population.  The right to religious expression is held by the inmate, and as such, ministry is shaped around the spiritual needs as requested by the inmates.  The objective is to provide the highest quality of religious services as requested by the inmate population.  This requires careful screening and proper training of ministry volunteer applicants to ensure each person is a proper fit and well trained in meeting the spiritual needs of our inmates.

We welcome the opportunity to explore with you where God might use you in this ministry.  Please refer to the information below that explains available areas of ministry.

If you would like to pursue opportunities for ministry at Riverside, please submit the completed Chaplain’s Informational Form (both sides).  Upon receipt of the completed form, the Chaplain will contact you to further discuss how you might be involved.

Thank you,

Chaplain Edward Blackwell
