Prison is Not a Rite of Passage: An Interview with Alan Campbell
Did you know that 70% of juveniles convicted of crimes have gone on to commit crimes again? With Our U.S. prison population increasing 15 times faster than the general population, the urgency for youth intervention has never been greater.
Our guest in this episode knows this all too well.
While serving 4 years in Millhaven Penitentiary in 1983 at the age of 19, Alan Campbell accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior and has stayed clean since that time with a full pardon from Correctional Services of Canada having the awesome privilege of sharing his testimony in churches and youth custody facilities across Canada.
In 2002 Alan founded “Refuge Ministries Canada”, a youth prison ministry based in London, Ontario with a mission statement of “Equipping churches for youth prison ministry in their community.”
