Motorcyclists Association, taking motorcycles
into prisons with Bill Glass Prison Ministry from

They have ministered to inmates at weekend events with Bill Glass
Prison Ministry, Prison Fellowship, Christian Motorcyclists
Association and Salvation Army. They had a team of people who
ministered with them at Municipal Correctional Institution (Kansas
City MCI Jail) for 19 years and Integrity Correctional Centers until it
closed in 2010. Jackson County took over Kansas City jail and
moved the inmates to a jail downtown. They changed the name of
jail to Regional Correctional Center. The team now ministers there.
While ministering at Kansas City MCI, Dale and Shirley, became
aware that about 85% of the inmates were repeat offenders. The
Lord gave Shirley the vision to have a home for women when
released from jail. Some of these women are homeless and others
return to situations that are abusive, compelling them to go back to
their old ways. As a result, Dale and Shirley formed, The
Shepherd's Way Ministries, Inc., a nonprofit corporation, to help
these women and to continue ministry to both the men and women
in jail and prison.
