Welcome to Brown County Jail Ministries

We are a 501(c)3 separate entity from Brown County Jail. Our mission is to meet the spiritual needs of the incarcerated, their loved ones, and the correctional staff at the Brown County Jail.

Our Mission Field

Approximately 10,000  inmates enter the Brown County Jail per year with 40%-60% of those inmates that re-enter into society committing another crime. On a monthly basis, Brown County Jail will have 600-650 inmates monthly. Brown County Jail Ministries is here to break that cycle!
