   Upcoming Weekend! 

KO #4 WEEKEND - APRIL 17-19, 2020

Our next Kairos Outside Weekend is April 17-19, 2020 in Lewes Delaware. 

For more information, email Carol Craig or call (301) 481-6149.

Kairos Outside is a special weekend retreat designed to support the female loved ones of men and women who are or have been incarcerated. Families of the imprisoned "do time" right along with their loved ones and are frequently shunned by society and even their own families.

In a safe environment with loving people, women interact with other women who are in similar situations and learn how to form small groups to support and give them strength for the many challenges they face. 

For information about joining our KO team, contact  Carol Craig. We are now accepting applications for our April Weekend. [Scroll below for training Schedule.]

If you, or someone you know is affected by someone incarcerated and have an interest in attending a Kairos Outside Weekend, please contact Michelle Pritchett

This is such a rewarding ministry!

From the tears, emotional testimonies and appreciation expressed by our Weekend graduates at closings of all three of our Weekends, it is obvious that the guests benefited immensely. Kairos Outside of Delmarva extends their sincere thanks to everyone who prayed for our #3 Weekend, held in October.

awesome reunion!

Kairos Outside's Reunion, held November 9th, 2019, at Conley's UMC, was fabulous! We had a great turnout and wonderful sharing! 


Kairos Outside of Delmarva would like to thank all of our benefactors for their generosity in supporting our Weekends.

Donations from individuals, organizations and businesses are heartwarming and enable us to continue this rewarding ministry. 

We would like to especially thank both Applebee's and Chick-fil-A for their generosity in donating meals for team members and guests of Weekends #1 in October 2018, #2 in April 2019, and #3 in October 2019. Bless you!
