It is realized that inmates have spiritual needs and they are offered religious activities and services to help meet those needs. The Brevard County Jail inmates are provided chaplain services by the Jail and Prison Ministry. The Ministry operates with three full-time chaplains and 75 volunteers from different faith groups. The Jail and Prison Ministry can be reached at (321) 690-1500 ext. 83141.
Inmates are invited and encouraged to participate in religious activities such as Bible studies, discipleship classes, and a variety of religious services offered through the Chaplain’s Office. Chaplains are available to spiritually advise and counsel inmates upon request. Written ministry polices on various topics, such as phone calls, literature requests and religious diets are available to all inmates. All activities are voluntary.
Participation must be made through the inmate’s written request.
Upon an inmate’s release, a list of resources offering potential assistance to inmates is available.
Bible or Sacred Text
- Inmates are issued a Bible or Sacred Text after making a request to the Chaplain’s Office.
- The Bible or Sacred Text will be the property of the inmate and upon release may take it with them as personal property.
- The Chaplain’s Office will only issue one Bible or Sacred Text per incarceration.
