Chaplain Gerry is full time in ministry to the Jail, Juvenile Hall, and Homeless locally, as well as operating a Prison ministry with weekly mailings of messages to inmates all across America. The Sheriff only supplies Chaplain Gerry with keys to the jail, and Chaplain Gerry is allowed to come and go just like the deputies.  No government money is used to support Chaplain Gerry…not even medical coverage.  All support for the Mission at the Jail comes from local churches (about 60%), and individual (about 40%).
If you don’t do so already, please place a note in your church bulletins (Or link Target Truth on your church Website for Jail & Prison Missions), something like the following: Know of someone in jail or prison?  Target Truth offers inmates a Christian message/study weekly at no cost to the inmate…just provide the name and # and address to Pastor Gerry Burney – Target Truth
No donation is necessary— it costs about $3 a month (about $35 per year), to sponsor an inmate, which includes weekly messages, postage, envelopes, and once a year we send every inmate on our list a Christian book—not one penny goes to wages or benefits—all donations go toward providing these books and studies and postage.  Our thanks to all of you who can help support this ministry. Please keep this ministry, the inmates, and law enforcement in your prayers.  Special thanks to Victory Outreach Church in Ukiah, where the men in recovery program there help Pastor Gerry each month to assemble the thousands of mailings that are  mailed out.
To God be the glory!!!
