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.
