Prison Ministry

Bringing Jesus to the Local Prisons

The Calvary Southeast Prison Ministry is led by Tim Ralls, one of our elders and the prison ministries pastor.

We are currently minister in four Oregon state prisons.

Oregon State Penitentiary (OSP)

We hold a Saturday evening service under Calvary Chapel, with worship and teaching through the Word of God.

Oregon State Correctional Institution (OSCI)

We have a church service as well every Sunday evening with the men leading worship and teaching through the Word of God.

Santiam Correctional Institution (SCI)

This is a smaller facility that we minister in. We spend our first hour in worship practice and the church service follows that.

CRCI is Columbia River Correctional Institution and recently began doing live worship with a practice before our evening worship and teaching time.


Calvary Chapel Southeast has been involved in prison ministry for over twenty years in Oregon. We first began at Oregon State Penitentiary, and we have expanded into other facilities over the past ten years.

We would love to have you come alongside us in ministry either by being a part of our prayer team praying weekly for the men’s prayer request we bring out or by joining us with our in-person teams. There are many ways of being a part of what we’re doing at Calvary Southeast and around our city and state. Tim and Lin Ralls are home missionaries out of Calvary Southeast and their ministry is Redeeming Grace Ministries.
