Goose Creek Chapel Fund

Are you willing to help change the lives of 1,000's of people?

Hello, my name is Gene Poirier.  I am a veteran with 2 Bronze Service Stars and an honorable discharge.  After a bad divorce, I lost my way and who I was supposed to be and ended up incarcerated in 1998 and have faced the death penalty along with life in prison.  While I was in prison in N.C., someone took the time to show me God's love, that He cared for me, that I had value, and that I had a purpose in life, my whole outlook and demeanor changed.

I started to care about myself and others, even though I was incarcerated and probably will be for the rest of my life.  A chaplain took the time, along with volunteers, to invest God's love into my life, and not long after on 05/17/12 I went to work as the chaplain's assistant, which I did until 01/21/21 when I was brought to Alaska D.O.C. on another sentence I have.  I have been working as the chaplain's assistant here since 05/03/21.  I just wish to show others that they are loved, cared for, valued, and have a purpose in life that is much bigger than anything they have ever been a part of in their life.

I have found that there is a true need in changing lives, while they are here as over 90% will return to their freedom, but will they stay free and make a difference or will they come back to prison?  This depends on their spiritual well-being upon their release.  If we can invest in these men's lives, we can change the lives of countless people now and in the future with the people they will come into contact with, from their families, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and communities that they will eventually live in.

While these men are incarcerated, they need a safe haven, a beacon of light in their lives showing them a better way to live their lives. These can best be achieved in a chapel.  I have drawn up a proposal for a chapel to be built to help accomplish this task.  Would you be willing to donate or know someone who would be willing to donate, as Galatians 6:10 says, "As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith."  We need to raise at least $3million, as the building needs to meet the Prison's Buidling Guidelines.
