Kings Crossing Prison Ministries has many faces that express God’s love for our fellow strugglers. Church shepherds (Kyde Eddleman, Robert Illgen, Stephen Johnston, Richard Scanio) oversee the ministry. The congregation began meeting in a tent at 4420 S. Staples in a neighborhood known as Windsor Park on Sunday, September 18, 1955. Fifty-one years later new property was bought on the southside in the Kings Crossing community. The first Sunday at 5901 Yorktown Boulevard was April 6, 2006.

Buck Griffith was its first director (1977-2021). Dr. Dale Underwood became director on January 1, 2022. Karlene, Dale’s wife, serves as his Administrative Assistant. Buck continues to work full-time in the ministry.

Dr. Dale Underwood became Director on January 1, 2022. This ministry is financially supported through its overseeing congregation (Kings Crossing Church of Christ), sister congregations, individuals, businesses, private foundations, and trusts. A monthly newsletter is published and distributed to keep everyone informed of progress, help new ministries start, and encourage others engaged in similar ways in this rewarding mission field. KCPM serves as a “Resource Center” offering guidance, referrals, and assistance.

Our office complex is located at 3833 S. Staples, Suite S-101, Corpus Christi, Texas 78411. In 1998, we separated the prison office from the church address to this commercial location. This resolved potential conflicts with our excellent “Rainbow Express” pre-school program on the same property.
