    Is their a formal training for prison ministry. I have been interested in finding out how you can get started doing this but no one seems to know if there is any formal training or how you can get connected. We have a gentleman from American Lutheran here in Huron that does this but he didn’t seem to know how to get the training, can you help me? Thank you.
