Prison Evangelism Press Room

Press Release and Press Kit 

Oil industry veteran David Howell is working a rich new harvest field—saving souls and reducing the prison population through a graphic guidebook, allowing public funds to be diverted to other pressing needs.

Mailing copies of his How To Be a Child of God to prisoners for just 54 cents a copy offers a remarkable 7,000-to-1 return on investment, according to Howell.  That’s because keeping someone from returning to prison by helping them find new life and hope as a Christian saves around $31,000 a year in incarceration costs.

Further information regarding this story and interview scheduling with David Howell are available by contacting Darin Campbell at (512) 785-8350, or dcampbell@inchristcommunications.com
