The World’s First Ministry Created to Support Individuals, Families & Organizations with White Collar/Nonviolent Incarceration Issues

TRANSFORMING LIVES, ONE STEP AT A TIME.

Rev. Jeff Grant, J.D., M.Div., Co-Founder

From serving time to time serving

Jeff is an ordained minister with over three decades of experience in crisis management, business, law, reentry, recovery (clean & sober 16+ years), and executive & religious leadership. Sometimes referred to in the press as “The Minister to Hedge Funders,” he uses his experience and background to guide people faithfully forward in their lives, relationships, careers and business opportunities, and to help them to stop making the kinds of decisions that previously resulted in loss, suffering and shame.

After an addiction to prescription opioids and serving almost fourteen months in a Federal prison for a white-collar crime he committed when he was a lawyer, Jeff started his own reentry – earning a Master of Divinity from Union Theological Seminary in the City of New York with a focus in Christian Social Ethics.  He is Co-Founder of Progressive Prison Ministries, Inc., the world’s first ministry created to support individuals, families and organizations with white collar and other nonviolent incarceration issues, and is the first person in the United States formerly incarcerated for a white collar crime to be appointed as CEO of a major criminal justice organization.

As an ordained minister, conversations and communications between Jeff and those he serves fall under clergy privilege laws. This is one reason that attorneys often allow and encourage their clients to maintain relationships with Jeff while in active prosecution or litigation situations.

Lynn Springer, Co-Founder

Faith in action

Lynn is the Founding Advocate of the Innocent Spouse & Children Project. As the innocent partner of a white-collar criminal, and a mother, Lynn is called to this ministry with a heart of compassion and understanding. A certified yoga instructor, she assists women and families in finding ethical ways through faith and practical solutions to a new sturdy, healthy, spiritual way of life.
