“For we preach not ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord; and ourselves your servants for Jesus’ sake.” - II Corinthians 4:5

Rock of Ages Prison Ministry is a ministry dedicated to bringing the truth of God's Word to incarcerated men and women. 

The ministry had humble beginnings in 1977 when Dr. Ed Ballew, who supplied sermon audio tapes to missionaries, started bringing the tapes to a Florida prison.  He realized these men needed the Lord, and his church got involved.  At the request of prison chaplains, they started holding services, supplying Bibles, tapes and players, concordances, Bible dictionaries, and holding Bible studies.

Soon, they were serving in prisons all over Florida and surrounding states.  Blessed Hope Baptist Church is honored to have a part in this valuable work with revivals held four times a year at Farmington Correctional Center, Potosi Correctional Center, and the Bonne Terre Diagnostic/Reception Center.
