McHenry Helping Hands

The McHenry County Helping Hands Ministry is an umbrella organization formed to create unity and accountability among the inter-denominational organizations serving McHenry County. Helping Hands has a Board of Directors which includes the County Chaplain, who works very closely with the County Sheriff’s office.

Ministry Mission Statement

  • To lead the inmates at the McHenry County Jail to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ as their personal Savior
  • To encourage their walk with Jesus
  • To provide Bibles to the inmates for their reference and study
  • To continue building up, encouraging, and supporting them while incarcerated and when released to go home

Serving people of many different religions

We are sensitive to different doctrines and we do not want to create confusion in the minds of the inmates. Hence the mission statement focus is an excellent guide for us to minister to all inmates as the Holy Spirit opens hearts and minds and reveals understanding to those incarcerated, that we care deeply about.

Inmates must be Free on the inside to be Free on the outside
