With over 85,000 men and women in custody and our prisons full to bursting, there has never been a greater need for sharing the Good News of Jesus with prisoners and encouraging them to ask God to transform their lives from the inside out.
Derek Prince Ministries UK started Inside Outreach in 1995 by providing free Bible teaching in response to a stream of letters from prisoners who were tuning to Derek Prince’s programmes on UCB radio.

Many people in prison or detention centres have plenty of time on their hands that they use to reflect on their lives. Many cry out to God for help and some come to Christ for the first time and want to learn more. This is where Inside Outreach comes in, by providing free Bible teaching through a set of Derek’s books and audio material. Over the years, our ministry of discipleship and encouragement has impacted hundreds of lives.
A prison chaplain wrote to us saying:
“Often prisoners are particularly open to prayer and spiritual reading material. Many are concerned about their family relationships, their own mortality and questions about the end of the world. The Derek Prince materials come highly recommended and it’s exciting to see prisoners get a hunger for God’s Word and for applying the Bible to their own life. Thank you so much!
A prisoner commented today: ‘I was in a time of darkness. Reading the Self-Study Bible Course has shown me that He is with me.’ He also said that while memorising scriptures and doing the quiz at the end of the chapter, ‘You can’t cheat, because you know God is watching’.”
Often prisoners ask to continue receiving our materials after their release sharing with us that they have been truly blessed by Derek’s teaching. Some of them take the teaching to their countries and become a blessing to others.
We supply inmates and detainees with free copies of Derek Prince's books and other Bible teaching material. It's our sincere desire to raise up wholehearted believers who disciple others while detained, and go on to be fruitful members of society following release.
