In this fourteenth episode of the Detention to Redemption podcast, I interview Roger Munchian, from Phoenix Arizona. Roger is the founder of a ministry that is called “Rescued Not Arrested.” Roger shares with us his testimony of a life of sin and how God miraculously rescued him through his arrest. Roger spent a 2.5 year sentence in Arizona Department of Corrections and during this time God placed this ministry vision in Rogers’s heart. As a born again believer in prison he accepted his consequences for the bad choices he had made in the past and realized this was a true blessing in disguise and welcomed the sentence as a mission assignment from God. His personal experience in prison was essential to understand the hopelessness, helplessness and the brokenness of the least of these imprisoned and how that brought so much suffering to their loved ones since his wife and kids too were facing similar challenges. Roger goes on to tell us how today his ministry Rescued Not Arrested is reaching out to the incarcerated throughout the United States by suppling prisons with Bibles, church services and one on one mentoring.
Roger’s testimony has also been written in a book called “Rescued Not Arrested.” This book was authored by H. Joseph Gammage and goes more in-depth then what we are able to do on this podcast. It is very insightful and well written and will keep your attention as turn through its pages. I would encourage anyone that is interested in or currently involved in prison ministry to pick up a copy of “Rescued Not Arrested.” If you purchase this book through Roger’s website, five dollars of this purchase will go to buy Bibles for the incarcerated. You can buy this book by clicking on its image.
You will be blessed and challenged by this interview so I encourage you to listen to it and share this podcast with your friends.
