Dona Ana County Detention Center Jail Ministry

Welcome!  If you're interested in jail ministry, or Bible study, or both, I'm glad you're here.

My name is Jodi Denning, and I taught Bible Studies for female inmates at the Dona Ana County Detention Center in Las Cruces, New Mexico for eight years.  I never expected to be spending a couple nights a week in jail, but that certainly seemed to be where God intended for me to be for a time!  You can read my testimony of how I ended up in jail here.

I shared some of my experiences in jail ministry through my blog, The Incarcerated Gospel, as well as some of the material I taught.  I've also received testimonies and some poetry from some of the women I ministered to that I have shared (with their permission) on the blog. 

Since 2015, I've been involved in teaching at Women's Intensive Bible Study Retreats sponsored by Moyer Ministries.

I believe Jesus Christ is the  King of kings, Lord of lords, Alpha and Omega, Beginning and End.  He is my Savior, my Comforter, my Wonderful Counselor.  He is my Rock.  He is fully God.  He is completely Sovereign.  He came as a man and was willing to endure torture, shed His blood, and die on the cross to pay for the sins of people like me.  He was resurrected on the third day, conquered death, and He is alive.  He offers eternal life to anyone willing to believe in Him and follow Him.

I have gladly taken Him up on His offer of eternal life to anyone who believes in Him, and I put my compete trust in Him as both Lord and Savior.  May He be glorified in all I do.

One of my favorite quotes:  "God is good.  Life is difficult.  A life of faith is lived between these two realities."

Romans 8:28  And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.
