New Connections Ministries is a non-profit charitable organization serving the community since 1993. This Christ-centered ministry was officially registered in 1998 and offers support and biblical counsel to inmates, former inmates, addicts and their families.
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
At NCM, staff members and volunteers visit and lead Bible Studies in local prisons, as well as in penitentiaries across eastern Ontario. The purpose is to reach inmates with the gospel of Jesus Christ, or in the case of inmates who are believers, with discipleship type ministry. Due to Covid-19 Prison Ministry has been placed on hold.
The NCM team try to maintain regular contact with each man and their family as they are released from prison. We offer counseling, emotional support and a mentorship program. Our desire is that these men have positive friends in the community. We assist the men in finding employment, invite them to our homes for meals and fellowship, and do what any good friend would do.
As part of community reintegration NCM provides a home in Ottawa for men who are working or attending school and need a stable living environment. This home is a discipleship home where the men are encouraged to study the bible, connect with a Christian church and be accountable to one another in the house
NCM offers biblical counselling to those who struggle with addiction issues, mental health and other problems. It is not a 12-step type program but rather Christ centred and biblically based.
