About the event
Free Oklahoma Banquet Information
Oklahoma has a problem. We incarcerate more of our population than anywhere in the world, not the nation, the world! Drug related crimes are the number one reason for incarceration and sentences for these crimes are twice as long as other states in the nation. 95% of prisoners will eventually be released but 77% of those prisoners will end up back in prison.
We know the problem now let’s talk about the solution.
Freedom Challenge is a ministry of Sonrise Adult & Teen Challenge and is helping addicts find hope behind bars at Geo-Correctional Facility in Lawton, Oklahoma. Men apply to be in our program and once accepted are removed from general population to our 100-man pod where they go through curriculum such as Temptation, Growing through Failure, Anger & Personal Rights, and Attitudes. Through these classes they can find the true solution for addiction: Jesus.
With the Lord’s help, we’ve turned one of the toughest prison pods into an area for discipleship and mentoring. Warden Hector Rios Jr. states that, “Violence at the facility has slowed down since Freedom Challenge was introduced in 2015.”
Join us on August 22nd to hear how you can be part of the solution. Doors open at 6:30 pm. Enjoy a delicious catered meal, live music, live auction, guest speaker JC Watts and testimonies of graduates and students who were transformed through this program. Help us set Oklahoma free from addiction.
