Alabaster Prison Ministries is a private performing arts group of musicians, artists and teachers united through a passionate love for Jesus and a zeal to be a portal of His grace, unconditional forgiveness and healing.   Alabaster is not affiliated with any denomination or church, and is a 501©3 non-profit organization.

Since 1991, over 550,000 people have experienced Alabaster’s praise & worship concerts,, scripture dramas, and workshops at state and federal prisons, drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, juvenile detention centers and homeless shelters.  In addition, Alabaster also presents professional shows and concerts at area theatres and restaurants.  Bullying Prevention and Drug & Alcohol Prevention assemblies at public and private elementary and high schools, colleges and universities have been presented across the eastern United States, along with Alabaster’s American Heroes show at Veteran’s Hospitals and nursing homes.

Alabaster has also brought our music ministry to Honduras, Nicaragua and Jamaica at orphanages, schools, hospitals and urban ghettos. 

Alabaster ministers to the elderly through our Smart Seniors project, a program of memory and body strengthening exercise classes, art, music and entertainment.  Smart Seniors holds classes in Greensburg and nursing homes throughout the area.

Chaplain William Ohl, SCI Mercer

"You presented a beautiful program that filled the atmosphere with hope for better future and new beginnings.  This is exactly what our men need to feel when they turn their lives over to our Lord and savior.  Many of our Hispanic inmates enjoyed hearing music being sung in Spanish."
