About My Ministry

Roy and Mary Callahan are partnering to reach North America with the gospel of Jesus Christ. They are directors of Hands UP Outreach, a multi-purpose ministry of Rankin Baptists, striving to model the love of Jesus Christ and to meet the needs of the broken and wounded of Mississippi. Their ministry theme is reaching UP and reaching OUT. The ministry location on the outside is at The Grace Center in Richland, Miss. They also have a site at First Baptist Church Richland for English as Second Language and citizenship classes.

On the inside they are at both prisons in Rankin County. Both ministry sites teach GED, life skills and job skills while evangelizing and disciplining.
