Prison Fellowship® trains and inspires churches and communities—inside and outside of prison—to support the restoration of those affected by incarceration. We equip correctional leaders, volunteers, and incarcerated men and women to make prisons more rehabilitative places; we advocate for a more restorative criminal justice system; and we collaborate with churches and local service providers to support former prisoners, their families, and their communities.

A creative and team-focused Instructional Designer to develop instructional content and learning experiences for Prison Fellowship Academy participants, staff, and volunteers in a fast-paced environment.

  • Strong knowledge of instructional design methods, theories and practices to assess needs and define the scope of client engagements, craft learning objectives, and create learning activities.
  • Ability to apply effective message design principles to writing, editing, and publishing intranet content.
  • Strong interpersonal and communication skills to coordinate with subject matter experts, design team members, facilitators, and clients to facilitate learners in acquiring knowledge, skills, and competencies in an effective and appealing manner.


What we offer:

A team oriented, mission driven, supportive environment with cutting edge technology solutions and tremendous opportunity for growth and development.
