Abstract (Summary)

The Research Author presents “A Study of the Prison Culture of the New York State Department of Corrections with Respect to Discipleship Goals of the Peoples Baptist Church in Brownsville, Brooklyn” as a problem in ministry for the formerly incarcerated members of the Peoples Baptist Church (PBC) in Brooklyn, New York. A study, which consisted of five instruments or questionnaires, was initiated to investigate this problem. The Research Author recruited twenty of PBC’s formerly incarcerated congregants as subjects for the study. The five instruments were used to interview the formerly incarcerated members of the church, fifteen correctional officers, three correctional captains, thirty pastors, and eighteen congregants who had no prison experience. The instruments were then used to compile information utilized in this study. The Research Author discovered that the traits possessed were antithetical to the PBC discipleship plan and efforts.
