Rev. David L. Cheyne
Faith-Based Reentry Program Manager for Deep Meadow Correctional Center
Lee Hargrave joined the GraceInside Family on July 1. Having served 35 years at Southampton and Greensville, Lee clerked for various chaplains for 20 years. He credits those chaplains with keeping him current and helping him through the worst of times with divinely-inspired “Grace Inside.” With his long history of working with chaplains and his experience with prison ministry, Lee is well-acquainted with our administrative needs. He is profoundly grateful to work for GraceInside, and finds that his journey has brought him full circle on both sides of the fence.
