About the Contributors

Anna Schaefer

Dan Brygger

Dan and his wife René minister to inmates in the state prisons of Wisconsin. They lead a large team of volunteers who have a “win-build-send” ministry inside the prisons. Using every opportunity possible to introduce inmates to Christ, they begin the building process through Bible studies, discipleship groups, and individual appointments. They then train the Christian inmates how to use creative initiative evangelism among their fellow prisoners. The Bryggers also represent Campus Crusade for Christ in Operation Starting Line, a nationwide evangelistic collaboration of prison ministries.
