In 1997, God placed on the heart of Dr. Kenneth M. Davis to reach out to lost souls that were within the prison walls of the state of Mississippi. As time went on, this vision became known as the K. M. Davis Prison Ministry.
The main focus of the ministry follows the motto of the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church – to preach the Word; being instant in season; reproving, rebuking, exhorting with all long-suffering, and doctrine (2 Timothy 4:2). Dr. Kenneth M. Davis, the Tabernacle Missionary Baptist Church, and others have carried out this vision through spirit-filled worship services, reentry workshops at prisons throughout the state and by constant prayer for the inmates and their loved ones.
The mission of the K. M. Davis Prison Ministry is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with inmates across the state of Mississippi while preparing them for reconciliation with Christ, their families, and communities through their new-found relationship with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ
Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.
