Updates from our State Chairman

Welcome to our Kairos of Arizona web page.

I’m Mike Smith, the State Chair for Kairos in Arizona.  Thank you for your interest in Kairos.  In Arizona we currently have 3 Kairos Outside programs.  Kairos Outside is a program that ministers to the female loved ones of persons that are or have been incarcerated.  It is also for women that have been incarcerated themselves and weren’t able to attend a Kairos weekend when they were in prison.  Our three programs are scattered throughout the state.  We have one in Phoenix, one in Tucson, and one in Northern Arizona.  The Kairos Outside program starts with a 3-day weekend retreat, followed by quarterly reunions and small prayer and share groups.  The teams consist mostly of women, but we do need some men volunteers to serve as cooks.  If you are interested in being a guest on a weekend (it’s Free) or serving on a team, click on the link of the Kairos outside you are interested in and email or call either the weekend leader or use the email address for guests.  You can also email me at
SPMIKE69@msn.com, and I will put you in touch with the right person.

We are presently doing Kairos Outside at one prison in Arizona. Saguaro Correctional Center in Eloy Arizona has an active Kairos Inside program. We always welcome new volunteers and also appreciate homemade cookie donations for the weekend retreats (2 a year). For information on either of these please email me. Again thanks for your interest and may God bless you.
