"Our prison system cages people for long periods of time, like a human zoo, and tears them apart from their innocent children," says the Rev. Holly Hillman. "So the question a church can ask itself is, 'What are we here to be and do?" Hillman recently helped to plan and was one of the leaders for the Bishop's Consultation on Prison Ministry within the California-Nevada Conference. The purpose of the consultation, held at the Conference Center in West Sacramento, was for conference leaders in prison ministry to educate conference leadership about the issues and resources related to prison ministry so a vision and strategy can be developed to lead the annual conference into meaningful ministry with those impacted by the prison system
