Neither Dr. Kola nor Winebrenner knew how God would continue their relationship beyond Murthy’s years in the Seminary’s doctoral program. . . He and the Seminary began to pray about and make plans for how the school could be a part of God’s work within the walls of MCI where Dr. Kola worked as Senior Chaplain. . .Certainly, God had already provided opportunity for Bible study and Christian community within MCI, through their internal Department of Religious Services, local church volunteers and para-church ministries. Dr. Kola felt, “What if the prisoners themselves became the ministers?” What if there were many “Dr. Kola’s” who did life with the prisoners, day in and day out, ministers who innately understood the tremendous pressures and challenges faced by the incarcerated?
