House of Prayer Ellettsville

Un-Chained Ministries

Un-Chained Ministries Inc. was founded in 1975 by Carl Beadle of Dugger, Indiana. It was primarily a Street Ministry in its early years but after a few young men ended up in the Greene County Jail, Carl knew that God was calling him into Jail and Prison Ministry.

It was Carl's passion in those early years to reach out to the local members of the Cloven Hoofs motorcycle club. Carl prayed that God would open the door for him and He did!

In 1978, Larry Mitchell (who had been president of that motorcycle club) of Ellettsville, Indiana, gave his heart and life to Jesus Christ. In 1983, Larry was invited to join the ministry.

After years of Carl and Larry working in jails, prisons, and taking it to the streets, other bikers accepted the saving grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and in May 1988, Carl, Larry, and three other Brothers in Christ formed an outreach of Un-Chained Ministries called the Un-Chained Gang Motorcycle Ministry.
