The mass incarceration of young Black males for drug-related offences is a social issue that has broad implications. Some scholars have described this as a new form of racism that needs to be addressed through the concerted effort of various institutions, including the Black Church. In this paper the authors will elucidate the past and current roles of the Black Church, discuss the utilization of the social work Theory of Empowerment and Black Church theology to address the disproportionality of drug-related mass incarceration of young Black males, focus on initiatives undertaken by the Black Church to address this issue and further, discuss the role of the Black Church in ex-drug offender reentry and reintegration. This paper will conclude with implications for the Black Church and... incarcerated young Black males. “Lord, the one you love is sick. “ When he heard this, Jesus said, “This sickness will not end in death.... Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep; but I am going there to wake him up.....“ Martha said to Jesus, “if you had been here,my brother would not have died....“ Jesus wept. Then the Jews said, “See how he loved him!...“ Jesus called in a loud voice, “Lazarus, come out! “ The dead man came out, his hands and feet wrapped with strips of linen, and a cloth around his face. Jesus said to them, “Take off the grave clothes and let him go. “ (John 11:3-4, 21, 35-36, 43-44, New King James Version).
