Former Chaplain John Mix

In Chaplain John's words...


It is hard to put into words all the ways I have appreciated this jail ministry. As I anticipate retiring as chaplain on Aug. 31, gratitude fills my heart. I am so thankful 
for the deep partnership that makes this work possible: the Sheriff department staff, Julia, the MALC board, and you congregations have all been generous in loving support in so many ways. This has been the best ministry I have ever done with 
God's help. I enjoyed bringing my creative energies to the challenges of sharing 
the good news of Christ among searching and hurting hearts. I assure you that 
they helped me grow as well. 

At 66 I am looking forward to more time at my easel and with my grandchildren. 
While I was able to do some writing that extended my reach to people in jail, the 
next "chapters" are waiting to be written. I will remain in Madison and hope to 
volunteer in the jail using the expressive arts process. 

Peace and Joy in the Living Christ! 

Chaplain John Mix



Words cannot express the gratitude of hundreds of incarcerated people, their families, jail staff, and the Madison Area Jail Ministry Executive Committee for the spiritual care Chaplain John has provided during his tenure as Jail Chaplain. 

We are very sorry to see him leave the chaplaincy, but are happy that he will now have time to pursue things that will feed his soul. We are blessed that he will continue to share his artistic talent within the walls of the jail.




Chaplain John Mix served at the Dane County Jail from 2007 to 2014.
