Mentoring is the cornerstone of what we do to help Set A Man Free.

The core of it,  is all about connecting Godly Christian men with an inmate who needs friendship and accountability.

The biggest need of this ministry is and always will be men willing to give of their time and patience to become a mentor to a man incarcerated in a Federal Institution. (As noted by other mentoring and visitation ministries across Canada)

What does a mentor do?

  • Visit at least once per month with their client match.
  • Be a friend
  • Attend an orientation once per year to Pathways Ministry
  • Attend further training with other mentors to encourage you and help you develop as an encourager and relationship builder.
  • Write a letter to your friend as you are able.
  • Possibibly meet with your friend once they are released.
  • Encourage your friend to attend a church and help them to find a church where they can grow and learn who they are in Christ.

What we do to help you!

  • Introduce you personally to your new friend, inside or out.
  • Provide an orientation in the facility on your first visit.
  • Supervise¬† your visit relationship over the first few months, by checking in with your match and with you, also reviewing with the resident Chaplain.
  • Provide on-going training to help you be the best you can be as a friend to your match.
  • Assist as needed as challenges arise.
