Burl Cain served as the Warden of Louisiana State Penitentiary, Louisiana’s largest maximum-security prison for over 20 years. Once known as the “Bloodiest Prison in America,” Louisiana State Penitentiary or Angola as it is commonly called, became one of the safest, most secure, and progressive maximum security prisons in the nation. There, Cain founded and facilitated the Accredited Hospice Program, Bible College in conjunction with the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, and also raised private funds to build seven chapels for inmate use on the prison grounds.
As a long serving, transformative figure in Corrections, Burl has the ability to motivate and inspire wardens and lawmakers on the subject of moral rehabilitation. His expertise and passion in the area of prison reform and moral change has steered him into aiding the spread of the gospel through Global Prison Seminaries Foundation.
Burl serves on the Religion and Faith-Based Services Committee and the Resolutions and Policy Development Committee of the American Correctional Association. He also serves on Board of Directors of Prison Fellowship Ministries, the Board of Directors of the Brooklyn Tabernacle, and is Chairman of the Board of the Department of Corrections Credit Union.
