I would like to add to the accolades of Rev. Jake Till, who died recently after a very fruitful life.
Several very good writers left out this very important ministry of Till's, and I would like to add it to the record.
Till served for at least 25 years as chaplain to the Florida State Prison in Quincy. He preached to, counseled and baptized incarcerated young men; I would estimate around 2,500. I am tempted to wager that very few of these men never came back to prison but were instead released to a glorious adventure that Till described to them every Sunday.
