At Jacob’s Ladder Ministries we are called to walk alongside men, women and families that have been impacted by incarceration. Whether currently incarcerated, re-entering the community, or supporting a loved one in prison; our agency is called to love, and provide support for you and your family.
We believe that God is merciful and compassionate. No one is too far removed from His grace and His ability to transform a life. We draw inspiration from Jacob in the Bible, who started off as a trickster, and manipulator…until he had an encounter with God and his life changed.
Jacob’s Ladder Ministries was founded in 2008 by Pastor Alfred T. Long, Sr., in St. Louis, MO and provides faith-based services to men, women, and children impacted by incarceration. Through in-person classes, workshops inside Missouri prisons, Christian 12-step classes, mentoring, support groups and sewing programs, Jacob’s Ladder Ministries reaches over 80 people annually.
Jacob’s Ladder Ministries is led by the husband and wife team, Alfred and Kacie Long. Both have their personal stories of how they came into prison ministry.
