The Faith and Character program at MCI has changed my life for the better. My walk with Christ is only a year old, yet the curriculum, environment and people involved have solidified my faith. The secular and faith-based courses have provided insights into my crime’s impact, forced me to examine my behavior and changed my way of thinking. The program is also preparing me for the world outside these gates with many reentry classes. The Faith and Character program has turned my incarceration from something negative into something very positive. I have a purpose now and an inspired to do positive things for God, my family and the world.
