Welcome



The Madison Area Jail Ministry provides the
Chaplains for the Dane County Jail in Madison, Wisconsin. The Jail Chaplains are fully funded by contributions to the Madison Area Jail Ministry. 

On August 16th, 2016, the Executive committee of the Madison Area Lutheran Council announced that, after discussion and a formal vote, a quorum of members unanimously approved changing the name from the Madison Area Lutheran Council to the Madison Area Jail Ministry. Many thanks to those who participated in the discussion and vote.

Please check out the Jail Chaplaincy Program  page to learn more about the importance of 
the program in at the Dane County Jail.

In addition to the Jail Chaplaincy program, Madison Area Jail Ministry provides the organization and support for the annual South Central Wisconsin Lutheran World Relief Boxcar Loading.



Thank you for your continued support of Madison Area Jail Ministry 
and the Jail Chaplaincy program!




"I listen to people tell their stories, to talk through their pain, their fears,
their hopes, their doubts, their sorrow, their joys,
their good news and their bad news."
