Central Prison

Central Prison is North Carolina’s all-male maximum security institution, housing more than 1000 inmates. We are blessed to offer three services each month, two for the general population in the prison chapel and another for those serving on ‘death row’ in a more secure venue on the property.  Worship services at the prison replicate the services at our other churches around the Triangle.  Part of our vision is to give every man, woman, and child an opportunity to experience Jesus and this is part of making that vision a reality!



Our Central Prison Pastor, Chuck Thompson, teaches the truths of the Bible in a compelling and meaningful way that can immediately be applied to your life.  Our messages in Central Prison follow mostly the same topics as all of our churches.  Click below to hear teaching from one of our other churches.

1st & 2nd Sundays


On Sundays

Volunteers who desire to go inside of Central Prison to serve its residents must undergo training from the prison staff. This Blue Card/PREA Training is not scheduled on a regular basis, but we will post the dates and times when we are notified.

Once you go through this training there are many areas you can help us serve on Sunday mornings!  Some areas in particular need right now are instrumentalists, vocalists & AV Techs as well as greeters, encouragers and prayer warriors.  Don’t worry though, if this is something you have a passion and a heart for, we will find a place for you to be able to serve inside the walls of Central Prison!

Any Time

You can make an impact on the gentleman in Central Prison wherever you are at any time!  The two biggest ways you can do that is through praying & letter writing.  These two things make more of a Kingdom impact than you would ever realize!

Please send an email to chuckt@pointchurch.com to get plugged in on how to meet these needs!
