   Murf's Story

Believe a Man Can Change...
Since his release in 1986, Jack Roland Murphy and wife Kitten have shared the true meaning of freedom with incarcerated men and women in more than 1000 prisons across the globe. His transformation from playboy to prisoner to preacher will convince even the greatest skeptics to Believe a Man Can Change.

“Sharing the Good News from his unique perspective as an ex-offender and former enemy of God, “Murf the Surf” has turned his personal example as a prodigal who’s come home into a life-line for prisoners around the globe. Join Kitten and me in this great harvest of souls as we support other prison ministries and continue to visit the lost souls behind bars with the Gospel of Jesus Christ!. The following quote illustrates Jack Murphy’s unique take on sharing the saving grace of Christ.

“A brother in the joint once asked me, ‘What are you... some kind of religious dude?’ I answered, not a chance, Pal. I used to represent trouble. But I changed management a while back. Today, I represent an ex-convict who was labeled an outlaw. Religious people called him a radical revolutionary and they put up the money to have him busted. One of his homeboys ratted him out. Just like they arrested all of us, they busted this innocent young man. He was taken to jail where they beat him beyond recognition. They found him guilty of stuff he never did and then he was executed on death row in front of his mother and hundreds of people. Three days later some women went to the cemetery to pay him respect, but His tomb was empty. The ground - even death -couldn't hold down this man I represent. The whole world even measures time from before or after his life. So you see my brother I’m no religious dude. I’m just the one who has come here to hook you up with the only man who can plead your case and set you free!”
