Start A Dismas Fellowship

Create A Safe & Welcoming Community

Where Do I Start?

One of our hopes for the Dismas Fellowship is that it continues to grow. The only way this can happen is if people of faith reach out and respond by using the gifts they have received to help those touched by crime.
There are many things to consider before proceeding with an actual group meeting and we think the best place to start is with a conversation.

Each Dismas Fellowship is independent and is the responsibility of a group of caring volunteers who are actively involved in creative works with those touched by crime. The Dismas Fellowship Network is a group of these local Dismas Fellowships that has come together to share ideas and experiences.

Below you will find a list of the current members of the Dismas Fellowship Network. Collectively we have a great deal of experience in the joys and the challenges in running a Fellowship.
