Doing Time with Jesus
A correspondence course entitled Born To Win first appeared in 1977. Since then it has been used in many prisons in the English-speaking world. We have no way of knowing how many have come to saving faith in Christ as a result of its lessons. Men and women who considered themselves born losers suddenly realized that they were born to win.
But these new converts face real problems as they seek to live the Christian life inside. As a result, there has been a call for a follow-up course that would help believers cope with these problems. Doing Time With Jesus is designed to fill that need.

Here's What People Are Saying!
"After being saved, my thirst for God's Word was unquenchable. Doing Time With Jesus was my first encounter with ECS Ministries. How appropriate, since I knew I must spend the rest of my days on this earth in a prison or go to Missouri's death row. regardless of my worldly circumstances, where or how much time I have left to live, I want to do all my time with Jesus Christ as my guide."
– D. S., Inmate in Missouri
“Doing Time With Jesus is the best course! A lot of questions I had before have been answered.”
– Simon, Inmate in Texas
"Doing Time With Jesus is one of the best studies I have taken so far. I really love it! I am dealing with a lot of these issues right now.It really changed my walk with God for the better. I love the Word of God. I thank God for your Bible study courses. They are encouraging me every time I get one. I know I must continue in the Word of God because it gets hard in here sometimes, actually most of the time. But greater is He in me than he that’s in the world. God bless you."
– Adrian, Inmate
