Get Involved

We need your help. There are many opportunities for you to serve in this ministry. All we ask is that you have a willing heart and a spirit of obedience and you can play a crucial role in God's ministry of Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives and Impacting the World. Here's some basic information to help you "get involved."

Be a Team Member

Kairos volunteers come from all walks and strata of life. They all share a desire to follow Christ's admonition of Matthew 25:36, "I was in prison and you visited me." If you feel God's call to minister to the incarcerated the female family member of someone incarcerated, as a part of a Kairos team, go to Where We Serve and contact the Advisory Council Chairperson to inquire about how you can get involved, or contact the Colorado State Chapter office to find out about qualification and training and to be put in touch with the local Kairos community. Not all team members serve inside correctional institutions. Kairos Outside weekends are usually held at church camps (and similar facilities).

Be a Prayer Partner

All Kairos activities are covered with prayer. You can be a part of that prayer effort. Contact us! You can find many of our prayer vigils on a

Be a Support Volunteer

Each Kairos retreat weekend has opportunities for outside support, such as baking cookies, writing letters of support, or preparing meals. Get your church's Sunday school classes to color placemats for mealtime in prison.

Who may I contact to discuss Kairos of Colorado?

Call or email any of the State Committee members listed in the Contact Us section of the website.

What correctional facilities does Kairos currently serve?

See the list of current facilities listed in the Where We Serve section of the website. There are several other facilities where we desire to start up Kairos teams, and we are searching for passionate volunteers to help start up Kairos services in those facilities. Contact the current State Chairman listed in the Contact Us section of the website.

How do I join a Kairos team to serve in a correctional facility?

Please contact any State Committee member on the Contact Us section of the website. In general, you simply need to select which facility you wish to serve in, submit a CDOC application to the Kairos volunteer coordinator for that facility (who will fill in any missing information and submit it to the correct CDOC volunteer coordinator), arrange to attend required CDOC Basic Volunteer Training (BVT), and complete a Team application for a particular Kairos Facility Weekend team.

How do I get approved to serve as a Kairos volunteer in a correctional facility, and what application form do I need to fill in and submit to whom?

Please print a copy of the CDOC Application form available on the Volunteer Policies on the CDOC Website page. Complete the CDOC Application Form and submit it to the appropriate Kairos Volunteer Coordinator for the facility you choose to serve in. That form will be finished by the Kairos Volunteer Coordinator and forwarded on to the CDOC for approval. After a period of time, the CDOC will mail you their approval, assuming you meet all the criteria.

How do I get the required training to serve as a Kairos volunteer in a correctional facility?

After receiving the CDOC approval described in the prior question, you simply call the CDOC volunteer coordinator listed on the training schedule provided by CDOC with your approval, and sign up for the training offered in the location of your choice (several are offered during the year in different locations around the state).
