Our mission, vision, and programming carry on former Pennsylvania Governor George M. Leader's dream of lowering the high incarceration rate in Pennsylvania.
The L.I.F.E., Inc. ministry and its associated curriculum is a newly re-created offering for county jails, the Department of Corrections and Bureau of Prisons.
Although L.I.F.E., Inc. is only one year old, its roots were planted in the household of Christ Community Church since 1985, when the former pastor, Larry Titus, founded Second Chance Ministries. In 1999, former PA. Governor, George Leader, helped develop and financially support its prison program, Walking Your Faith. In 2013, Marcia and Ed Sinkovitz assumed this faith-based, life skills program and re-formatted the curriculum as L.I.F.E. (Leading In Faith & Education). L.I.F.E. is now one of the very few faith-based life skills programs in the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections serving in 20 state prisons, three federal prisons and six county jails.
