Volunteer Opportunities


The ministry of St. Dysmas is made possible through the combined efforts of close to 60 registered volunteers made up of clergy and laity. St. Dysmas has a called pastor whose responsibility is to maintain the organization of the congregation and help relate the ministry to congregations of the DE-MD Synod and Metro DC Synod.

Volunteers for St. Dysmas are asked to do more than just visit in the prison.  Our volunteers are worship leaders, provide music at worship, lead Bible studies, and assist with financial record keeping.  Volunteers also serve to testify to the ministry in their local congregations enabling awareness of St. Dysmas’ witness among the incarcerated.
