Jimmy MacPhee recounts his prison experiences, including his time in the CIU Prison Initiative, in an article published in Living Real Magazine. He writes: “In 2017, I was chosen as one of only a few inmates to pursue a Bible college education from Columbia International University-Prison Initiative. I was trained to be both a missionary and a peacemaker to the most dangerous prison yards in South Carolina. Imagine that – God transformed me, an angry, violent murderer into a peacemaker!”
The CIU Prison Initiative equips qualified inmates through an accredited Associate of Arts degree to reach fellow inmates with the message of Christ. After graduation, alumni of the CIU Prison Initiative are assigned as chaplain’s assistants at correctional facilities around the state.
