We would like to introduce Chad LaComb our Prison Ministry Teacher. Chad’s life is a living testimony of God’s ability to redeem and restore. His desire for the class is that his students would bless those involved in prison ministry, and in the prison system.

What do you enjoy the most about your class?

I enjoy seeing students go from apprehension about prison ministry, and going into a prison, to excitement about being involved in this much needed ministry.

What are the main points you want your students to leave with?

Prison ministry is a domestic mission field, and the harvest in prisons is ripe! As you serve in prison ministry you will be blessed, as you serve others, and bless those in the prison system.  

What is a brief summary of your life?

I have been married to my wife Tamara, a high school english teacher, for almost 9 years. We live in Murrieta, CA. I am currently a Calvary Chapel pastor overseeing Fully Restored ministries, a ministry to help people struggling with addictions and those coming out of prison. I am the facility manager for the Murrieta Hot Springs Christian Conference Center. In addition, my wife and I own a welding and fabrication company that we use to support our ministry and provide a platform to teach the guys in the ministry a trade.

What do you enjoy the most about the class?

I enjoyed hearing the testimonies of those that were in prison, and of those doing prison ministry.

What is one thing that you learned, and how can you use it to benefit you in the future?

I’ve learned that showing love is important, and it will get you so far when sharing the gospel in the prison system. It was amazing to see how showing love, and spending time with someone can impact their lives and change them.

What stood out to you the most from the class teachings so far?

People in prison are wanting love but, unfortunately people in the church are not pursuing prison ministry.  Prison ministry is so simple because all you have to do is show the love to them.


Elle Martinez is a student from our Prison Ministry Class. Below is her perspective on the class.

What do you enjoy the most about the class?

I enjoy hearing the testimonies of the various guest speakers, pastor’s, prison ministry workers, and volunteers that share at our class. I also enjoy learning alongside my classmates who have a heart for prison ministry.

What is one thing that you learned, and how can you use it to benefit you in the future?

I learned that people in the prison are no different than us. We all have sinned, but they got caught, and we just haven’t been caught for our mistakes. I can use what I have learned to show love to others, and not to think I’m better than anyone else. All sins are the same in God’s eyes, and no one is better than anyone else.

What stood out to you the most from the class teachings?

I have learned that God’s love is unconditional, and that He can change everyone, even the cold-hearted and the broken. God is powerful, and all-knowing! He will rescue anyone from their state of hurt or brokenness.
