When I got to prison I was completely broken, hopeless, and didn't know Jesus. I thought my life was over, I didn't stand a chance at any future or happiness. Then I went to my first "Mrs. Nicole's class" in the Chapel and the rest is history! I gave my life to the Lord and within the next few weeks Nicole baptized me, started personally mentoring me, and guiding me in the ways of Jesus. She and Randy poured into my life during my 18 months in prison and since I've been out. Their love for me is astounding and they have always gone the extra mile to help me navigate this new life in Christ and as a productive member of society. Without The Jesus Infusion, I would have been hopeless and lost, but thanks to Nicole and Randy I am free in more ways than one!
Since 2015, The Jesus Infusion has baptized over 800 women from jail and within the prison.
The space behind bars is fertile ground for the gospel.

Annually, 3,000 women meet The Jesus Infusion team each year between jail and prison.
This includes women from all over the state.
The Jesus Infusion is a faith-based nonprofit organization helping women in prison in the north central Florida area. The ministry began after Nicole Dyson, TJI Founder, served her own sentence in federal prison. She has a thorough understanding of the complex struggles women face before and after their release. She helps to infuse the light of Jesus in the dark for over 3,000 women a year.
For over a decade, through TJI's prison and reentry support, women have been discovering grace, hope and a new kind of freedom- the freedom of walking with Jesus.
"...my lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You because You have redeemed me."
Listen to Juanita praising God even while behind bars. She decided to follow Jesus and was baptized. Juanita is now walking in freedom.
We help empower women
to walk in a truly new way, a life infused with Jesus, during incarceration or once released, which is what we call reentry.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
"I retired from the Florida Department of Corrections as a Captain after 27 years of working with men, women and youth offenders. During my time with female offenders, I knew a christian warden who was instrumental in leading me to Nicole Dyson and The Jesus Infusion.
The incredible path God laid out for me, the experiences with incarcerated women, the struggles they have after being released, the way God has equipped me to help in this needed ministry could only come from God for His purpose, for His Glory in this day and time."
— Melissa Lott, retired Captain of 27 years, TJI board member
