This year's theme is a FOCUS on the family. At FOCUS Ministries, we believe that what makes each representative community in our city strong is the collection of families that make it up. We also beleive that each family is strengthened through a FOCUS the person and work of Jesus Christ.
We ask you to pray diligently for our work both behind and beyond the walls strengthening the family unit through life-skills coaching and faith-based mentoring.
The best part of serving behind the walls, especially at the Knox County Detention Facility, is the front seat you receive to life change. Here are just a few of the ways our facilitators see life change happening every week.
These are just three of the amazing ways FOCUS facilitators see God at work behind the walls every week. We challenge and encourage you to join the team, help lead a class, and be on the front row to watch God change a life!

Recently a lady wanted to move her stuff to a different cell -- taking class time to do so. When she was told no, she became visibly upset. It became evident this lady was used to getting her way. However, she ended up being more blessed than anyone in the class that day. During a video shared, the lady was broken and weeping.
Interesting enough, during the opening prayer, the class instructor felt prompted pray that God would surprise with a blessing that. Well, He did just that! Click below to find out more about the FOCUS Behind the Walls efforts.
