BELFAIR – Approximately 70 inmates at Mission Creek Corrections Center for Women in Belfair, Washington, packed the facility's gymnasium during an August weekend for the Annual Women of Faith Conference.

The two-day event was arranged by Way of Holiness Ministries, which visits the facility multiple times each month. The weekend was filled with guest speakers, worship, and live music. The room was complete with vibrant colors from tablecloths and an entrance archway.

Events like Woman of Faith contribute to the agency achieving one of its core values – supporting people's need and ability to grow and change, leading to improved public safety.

After each program, participants are given a chance to share with each other the reflections they had from the worship or speaker. At the conclusion of the event, the inmates are able to keep their conference folder and bible.
