About Us


Lisa M. Perry, Director/President

Lisa has a heart for returning citizens and encouraging them  to believe in themselves as children of God.  She believes everyone has  been given a talent by God (Matthew 25:14-30) and one day each of us  will be asked what have we done with our talents.  Lisa has been a  Yokefellowship Prison Ministry volunteer since November 2008 in Lehigh  County Jail and became Board Chairperson in October 2011.  She resigned  as Board Chairperson in December 2014 to focus on her "calling" of  re-entry.   On February 12, 2015, Second Chance Training Center, Inc. was registered as a non-profit corporation.  Also later in 2015 she started going back into Lehigh County Jail to  facilitate Bible studies, in December 2015 was voted back on the Board  and in May 2016 was voted in as Council Director of Yokefellowship  Prison Ministry Lehigh Valley Council.  Lisa resigned as Council Director on December 31, 2018, to totally  focus on the mission of Second Chance Training Center, Inc.

Barb Thomas, Assistant Director/Vice President

For the past 30+ years Barb has been passionate about sharing her faith with those who are

shackled by sin.  She has been blessed to minister to neighborhoods in Quakertown, Allentown,

Kensington, and on a short term mission trip to Albany, New York.  Barb has also been a

volunteer of Yokefellowship Prison Ministry for many years and has served on the Board of

Directors for two separate terms.  She has ministered in Lehigh County Jail, Lehigh County Community Corrections Center, Lehigh County Center for Recovery, and the former Lehigh County Juvenile Detention Center.

In recent years God has given her a burden for those who are reentering society.  She has come

to realize the many problems they face as they endeavor to live changed, productive lives. She

also firmly believes they are of great value to the Lord. Therefore, as a Christian she believes she

needs to minister to them not only with words, but also in acts of kindness and encouragement that will help to point them to the Lord.
