From September of 1989 until October of 2005, we were known as the Adventist Prison Ministries Association (APMA), which was the support and service organization for Seventh-day Adventist Prison Ministry volunteers in the North American Division.
We are now a 501(c)3 international self-supporting professional Network (Association) of Prison Ministry volunteers and organizations, known as the Alliance of Prison Ministry Organizations and Affiliates (APMOA). We offer Prison Ministry training, resources, and consultation services, to churches, and other organizations, that are not affiliated with the Seventh-day Adventist Faith, as well as to entities, at all levels, of the world-wide Seventh-day Adventist church. (We train people, at our Conventions and other events, how to properly do "Prison Ministry" in their respective areas and/or Conferences. We do not do "Prison Ministry", anywhere, in APMOA's name.)
Although we changed our name and the scope of our mission, we are still totally committed to training Seventh-day Adventists (locally and globally), as well as other Christians, how to properly carry out the "Great Commission, especially as it relates to those directly involved in providing "Prison Ministry" (Evangelism Behind Bars, Prisoner's Family Support, or Ministry to Returning Citizens).
