Welcome to Altered Ministries!
My name is Jayne and it is so good to have you visit our page!
In 2017, my friend Jessica Smith and I were driving back and forth from ministering at the Women's Eastern Reception, Diagnostic and Correctional Center. (This is a women's prison in Vandalia, MO.) We would talk about how we could see the Lord radically transforming the lives of those incarcerated there. We wanted the women we know outside of the prison walls to experience the same life-altering freedom that our friends inside the prison were. Altered Ministries was birthed as we believe that women are “altered” and transformed in the presence of Jesus! After some discussion, we had the wild idea to host a local women's conference and bring in gifted speakers to encourage and equip the women who would attend. We were so honored when we found ourselves scrambling for more parking spaces having the doors nearly bursting open with all who attended our first ever Altered Conference at CrossHaven Church in O’Fallon, Mo. The reviews were amazing as the Lord showed up and ministered in a mighty way to all of those who attended. In 2018, by God’s grace we hosted 3 more conferences at Calvary Baptist Church in Hannibal, Mo., Creekside Place Church in Warrenton, Mo., and most profoundly on the actual prison campus that launched Altered Ministries!
I don’t know all that the Lord has planned for us for 2019 but I know He is calling us to go “Deeper Still” in our walk with Him. We are excited to follow His lead to know Him more intimately, serve Him more purposefully, and love those He loves more intentionally. Let’s go deeper together friends - there is still so much more to discover in our walk with our Savior!
"Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will." Romans 12:2
About Jayne: Jayne Patton holds a deep love for the global and diverse body of Christ followers.

She currently ministers weekly at the women's maximum security prison in Vandalia, Mo. through the Beauty for Ashes Program believing God can change anyone's life when they surrender to Him.
