There is a common spirit among the people who walk side-by-side with ex-offenders on their journey to successfully reenter society. It is a spirit of compassion, faith and hope. Our staff and volunteers have that spirit, and it is shared by others who have taken an active role in helping men and women start anew and avoid a return to prison. In 2012, the Spirit of Prodigal Award was established to recognize individuals and organizations whose mission aligns with that of Prodigal Ministries.
We are now accepting nominations for the 2014 Spirit of Prodigal Awards. Nominees will be evaluated on the following criteria:
- Demonstrates compassion for the plight of ex-offenders and their quest to not re-offend.
- Assists ex-offenders to rebuild relationships with their families and communities.
- Is involved in the comprehensive effort to help men and women return to productive and independent living in the community.
- Becomes a role model for this at-risk population.
The deadline for nominations is July 14, 2014. Click Here for a nomination form or email requests and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Award recipients will be honored September 4, 2014 at Prodigal Ministries’ 7th Annual Christmas in September. The event will be held at Seelbach Hilton Louisville. Christmas in September is sponsored by Corporate Sponsor: Stock Yards Bank & Trust; Boutique Marketplace & Cocktail Sponsor: Brown-Forman; and Valet Parking Sponsor: Blue Grass Motorsport.
