To see that not one leave Matagorda County Jail without having a chance to know Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior.
To exhibit the love of Our Lord Jesus Christ as we instruct inmates in basic Christian principles, so that souls many be saved and discipleship begin.
Who We Are
South Texas Prison Outreach (S.T.P.O.) is a locally based, interdenominational organization composed of Christian men and women who share a common desire to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ into the prisons of America.S.T.P.O. was founded in 1994 and is an established 501 (c) (3).
What We Believe
S.T.P.O. members conduct weekly Bible studies with male and female inmates at the Matagorda County Jail. We make available to each inmate the Bible “Free On The Inside” and the devotional “Our Daily Bread”. Many also volunteer in a wide range of other ministry activities such as inmate Bible studies at area state prisons, conducting worship services in both county and prison facilities and inmate pen-pal discipleship. Additionally many members participate in activities organized by Mike Barber Ministries, Prison Fellowship and Bill Glass Ministries.
