The Apple Tree Project
Each year Kingsway Family Outreach serves as host site for the Apple Tree Project, which provides Christmas gifts for the children of incarcerated parents. People are encouraged to pick “apples” with the name and wished-for items for a specific child. The "apples" are made available through churches, the Kingsway office, and other venues. Donors purchase the wished-for gifts and return them unwrapped, along with a donation for shipping, to the Kingsway office or designated location by a specified date in time for delivery by ministry volunteers. Volunteers wrap the presents and prepares them for shipment. The presents are delivered by volunteers or shipped via UPS to the children in time for Christmas.
Inmate Christmas Gift Project

My name is Amber Davidson, I was incarcerated in 2012 at Harrisonburg Virginia regional jail for manufacturing of methamphetamine. I was there from Florida away from anyone and everyone I once knew. God brought me to a place of pure surrender and I was forced to call on His name if I wanted help. I was isolated away from things which linked to my former self and He began to show me who I was predestined to be. In this process He shown me what the love of Christ looked like on the face of another. Kingsway prison ministry was one of those faces, Louise Jennings, through my rough edged attitude loved me anyways. She was my chaplain and while battling to defeat my old character she would give me guidance in the word and lead me down the path of righteousness. She went and got my belonging which was all I had and stored them in a unit for 2 long years. She took her time, talent and resource to help me when I was released to get all the things I needed to get my life back up and running. We have also stayed in touch and been able to serve at a conference which has helped me grow as a woman of God to help birth the ideas for my own ministry. Kingsway loved me when I wasn’t lovable and helped me see that there was still good in the world. This ministry also showed me what it was to be the hands and feet of God.
