About the Institute for Prison Ministries

Vision: Believers providing competent correctional ministry that furthers the gospel

Mission: Serve as a Christian correctional training and resource center

The Institute for Prison Ministries (IPM) is a department of the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism at Wheaton College. IPM began as a result of the vision of Charles Colson and Kenneth Wessner. In 1984, through the generosity of Kenneth and Norma Wessner and a longtime business partner, the Institute for Prison Ministries was established. The Charles W. Colson Scholarship was added in 1986.

Answering the Call is an in-prison evangelism training seminar for Christ-followers to live focused lives of witness and discipleship.
