Our mission is to build lasting relationships with those in our community who have been impacted by crime, restoring them to God, family, and community with the Gospel of God.
Next Chapter Ministries began in 1991 as a once a week Bible Study in Olmsted County Jail in Rochester, MN. Later an outside Bible Study/Support group was created to continue to help individuals after release. From this group Next Chapter Ministries formed, becoming an official non-profit organization in 2000. Today, Next Chapter Ministries has grown to include three residential aftercare homes, support for families of prisoners, a youth center for high risk teenagers, and an outreach for children.
