Escape Ministries is the personal ministry of John Lawson.

After being released from Prison in 2007 with a 'New Heart and a New Spirit' in Christ Jesus, John had a burning desire to share his new found faith with others. Since July of 2008 He has been serving the Lord in Full time voluntary ministry. By The Grace of God he has shared the Gospel in over 22 countries to date. Escape Ministries have a heart to reach those in physical prisons as well as those in a Spiritual prisons.

As an experienced international speaker John has spoken to audiences in the tens of thousands across the globe and has a heart to train and equip Christians to share their faith and is currently working in several countries to promote ongoing schools of evangelism and evangelism workshops.

While there is an emphasis to our prison work, we are not simply a prison ministry. Our lord Jesus said in Mark 16:15 To Go into ALL the world and proclaim The Gospel" and we are using the following model to reach as many people for Jesus as we can.

  1. Reaching
  2. Teaching

Reaching - by sharing testimony and The Gospel to the lost via outreach programmes. 

Teaching - by training and equipping Christians to be active and effective in evangelism

I pray that this ministry will only seek to Glorify God through our Lord Jesus Christ and His Holy Spirit.

I pray for boundless opportunities to share the Gospel and to teach the church to do the same.

I pray for wisdom and discernment in all we do, that we may through Him accomplish what He has instructed us to do.

I pray that we seek The Lord Jesus in everything we do.

In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Saviour



"I believe John's book 'If A Wicked Man' should be in every prison library in the U.K." (Rev Shawn Verhey)

Can you help me to order enough copies of my book to give away freely to every prison? Email me here for details.
