Madison Area Jail Ministry

Bethel provides funding that supports a men’s and a women’s chaplain for the Dane County Jail. Chaplain Todd  Marcotte brings spiritual and personal support to Dane County inmates.

Madison Area’s Jail Ministry serves people in Dane County who are incarcerated, their families, and their communities. Our logo illustrates our mission. The blossoming flower represents hope, perseverance, and love for a new life. As the shackles of past lives and poor choices are broken, wisdom, forgiveness, faith, and love grow. The mosaic hands speak to diversity. People from every walk of life are impacted by incarceration. This rich diversity of life experiences informs the spiritual journeys of every person who is seeking a closer relationship with God. The handcuffs represent both the literal shackles of physical confinement and the figurative prisons of self-doubt, shame, and self-loathing. The hands and the flower breaking free of the circle represent the limitless possibilities when we bring faith, hope, and love into the challenging process of re-entry.
