Dale and Shirley McNeall started in prison and jail They have ministered to inmates at weekend events with Bill Glass
ministry in 1992 with the Christian Motorcyclists
Association, taking motorcycles into prisons with Bill
Glass Prison Ministry from Texas. After this
experience, God placed a call on their lives to go
into prisons and jails to share the Gospel of Jesus
Christ and His love for the inmates.
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. 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.
