Robert Vann is Executive Director and co-founder with his wife, Maria Vann of: A Strictly Biblical Perspective Ministries Inc.A ministry dedicated to assisting local churches, ministries, chaplains and addiction counselors in developing a greater capacity for ministering to the incarcerated, ex-prisoners and their families.

Vann empowers ministries with in-prison aftercare and addiction ministries to become highly affective and receptive in ministering to this often disregarded and misunderstood population. He provides specialized training in meeting their spiritual, emotional and social needs.

Vann has served as Program Manager and Aftercare Specialist for Transition of Prisoners Inc., a faith based aftercare program partnering with the Michigan Department of Corrections. He is an ordained minister with over fourteen year’s experience in ministry and has a Masters of Arts degree in Counseling from Wayne State University and was a member of Koinonia House National Advisory Board, Wheaton, Illinois.

He is the author of The Principles of Effective Mentoring of Ex Prisoners, published by Prison Fellowship Ministries, where he was employed for seven years as an Aftercare Case Manager.

CEO and Founder of Mastering Manhood, Gillis Triplett says of Vann, “Without question Robert is the premier leader when it comes to successfully ministering to ex-prisoners, the incarcerated and those battling with addictions. With his proven indepth training program and his no nonsense approach to transforming lives - ministries, prisons and prison aftercare outreaches can actually succeed, not only at reducing recidivism amongst ex-offenders, but also of empowering the down trodden to be made whole!” I earnestly encourage all pastors, prison ministry officials, faith based ministry leaders, wardens, prison aftercare leaders, case workers and counselors to consult with Robert Vann on how to tailor your program for maximum success.”
