Here at Harvest Time Juvenile Ministries, Inc. we provide free assistance with materials to help direct youth to gain positive thoughts through life prevention skills. Remember, every youth is worth saving and given a second chance if they are willing to make that change. The change must initially start from within, and gear toward focusing on positive thinking, and productive family environment. Our board of directors and volunteers work with youth before they are incarcerated, while they are incarcerated.We provide a mentor-ship service when they are released and before they a property of the state system.

Pastor Maddox has recruited and trained many volunteers and has seen thousands of young people come to full knowledge of Jesus Christ. Pastor Maddox is an Ordained Bishop, a State Volunteer Chaplain for Department of Juvenile Justice, a Community Service Chaplain, a chaplain at the Marion Regional Juvenile Detention Center and a dedicated leader who is reaching our troubled youth who is incarcerated, or in their own family home. His mission is simple reaching out through Jesus to help these troubled youth. Pastor Maddox will use whatever means or resources within his means that are necessary to help turn around a troubled youth and put him or her on the right path! Remember, every youth is worth saving and should be given a second chance if they are willing to make that change.
I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee hungered, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.
