It has long been the vision of Pastor David Sumrall to establish a ministry dedicated to people behind bars. In 1996, after initial visits by COP to the maximum security prison in Muntinlupa, death row inmates wrote back a letter of thanks for ministering to them. The following year, starting with a volunteer of one, COP was tasked to begin opening up Bible studies in the different jails and prisons in Metro Manila. In 1998, the COP Prison Ministry was officially launched and has now grown to the biggest of its kind in the country in terms of coverage. Today, under the supervision of now Pastor Ferdie Santos, the ministry currently has over 50 Connect Groups in almost every jail in the National Capital Region, including the Correctional for Women and the New Bilibid Prison in Muntinlupa. It continues to reach out to jails outside of the metro and nearby areas.
