“If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed!” (John 8:36)  Through the ministry of Rev. Afam Ikanih, Rev. Elijah Ndon, and layman Patrick Batom, the Gospel of Jesus is setting men free from slavery to sin. Through Bible studies, worship, and one-on-one counseling at the Milwaukee County House of Correction in Franklin, Pastor Ikanih reminds the incarcerated that there is hope and forgiveness—and freedom!—through faith in the crucified and risen Christ. This amazing ministry led to the baptism of 42 men in 2013. And yet, more than ministering to the incarcerated, Free at Last through Mission of Christ Lutheran Church, Milwaukee, also meets the needs of ex-offenders and provides a spiritual home for these men as they struggle to live out their faith once they are out of prison.
