It began in 1940, at Reeb Hosack Baptist Church, under the direction of Pastor H.H. Tiggs. At fifteen Betty J. King began going into the prisons with her church choir with the opportunity she began singing as a soloist. The prophecy through Pastor Tiggs that prison ministry would be her call, which in turn led to an undying passion for prison ministry.
In 1943, Betty J. DaCons, had a vision where the Lord led her to the scripture “For out of prison He cometh.” Ecclesiastes 4:14. From this The Wise Men and Women of the Word Prison Ministry was born. That has been over 65 yearx ago. It is with great joy that she humbly accepted her call of God to minister to prisoners which she made this her life mission. Since then Mother Betty J.
