Richard Wilder

Currently live in Harrodsburg, KY with my wife of 54 years, Charlene. We have four children, six grandchildren, one great-grandchild. We have a small farm that I raise black angus beef for family consumption. My passion for the Lord has led me into prison ministry. I am a Deacon at The Carpenter's Christian Church and prison ministry is my ministry to lead. We presently are a pilot program and the only active Prison Fellowship Ministry in Kentucky. The third year class is in progress. Following the submission of much data and several interviews PFM Faith-Based program has gained significant recognition within the KY DOC resulting in inmates who complete the program receive 90 days special consideration. The state has made this retroactive for the previous classes. This is the only faith based program to have this status in KY and expect it to expand the next enrollment, as well as be instituted in several additional prisons. TCCC is also in the process of live streaming it's 8:30 AM Sunday service to the chapel of the Northpoint Training Center, a 1250 inmate prison.
