The God Squad Discipleship team travels to prisons throughout Northern California to present one of the sixteen discipleship seminar topics to the inmates over the course of a weekend. The team usually travels to the prison on Friday and presents their first session on Saturday morning. There are usually two/two hours sessions on both Saturday and Sunday. The sessions include large group teaching/preaching and time for small group discussion.
If you are interested in participating in a seminar, please contact the office a few months ahead of the scheduled seminar. It takes at least a month for clearance paperwork to go through the proper channels.

The God Squad orientation is where you will get the training that you need to go inside prisons and other correctional facilities. The training is held quarterly throughout the year at the Follow Up Ministries' office. Prison ministry requires that volunteers be carefully selected, trained and supervised. Trainees are selected on the basis of availability, Christian maturity, and ministry needs. Applicants are screened through the God Squad Orientation process, and again as they are cleared through local, state and federal correctional agencies.
