PriMEDD (Prison Ministry Enlivening Duke Divinity), a student group at Duke Divinity School, will hold a discussion for interested students featuring three chaplains from the U.S. Bureau of Prisons talking about what ministry is like behind prison walls.

Chaplains Luke Langston, Leon Parker, and Peter Hong will share their experiences in the "A Day in the Life of a Prison Chaplain" discussion on what a typical day is like, what they like the most, what they like the least, how much they get paid, how to get a job in the federal system, and how they felt God's call into this ministry. Students also will be encouraged to consider how ministering with incarcerated men and women could impact their pastoral ministry.

The names of the chaplains were not available.
