Jail Ministry in Dickson, TN

Dickson County Jail Chaplaincy provides chaplaincy services to the Dickson County Jail in Charlotte, TN. Chaplain Tom Todd leads the ministry along with a team of volunteers who provide Bible studies, pastoral care, adult education (HiSET, GED, etc.), parenting, domestic violence, anger management, Journey to Freedom, Celebrate Recovery, and re-entry job training opportunities.

We exist to make Christ known in the county jail. We believe this ministry can change a life and an eternity and make a difference in our hometowns. If you have any questions, please contact Chaplain Tom Todd at chaplaint@dicksoncosheriff.gov or (615) 351-2446.

Support the Ministry

There are three main ways to support this ministry:

  1. Pray. We covet your prayers. Pray for our safety in the jail. Pray the Lord would soften the hearts of the inmates. Pray for favor with the staff. Pray that God makes this effort succesful.
  2. Volunteer. If you’re interested in bringing your skills to the jail as a volunteer, contact Chaplain Todd. He will discuss opportunities to serve and get you scheduled for our next Safety & Security training session. (2023 training sessions are scheduled for March 2 from 5-9, August 19 from 8-noon, and December 9th from 8-noon).
  3. Give. Your financial support allows the chaplain to serve and keeps the ministry running. Any amount is appreciated. We would be glad to come speak at your church or civic organization and share more about the work God is doing in the jail.
