  • Free movies ABOUT our work, when you help us IN our work.

    For every online donation of $20.00 or more, we will send you three complimentary DVDs: (1)the "The Fox News Story on Darrington Seminary," which takes you into the historic Darrington (Penitentiary) Seminary, which is fully funded by The Heart of Texas Foundation and its donors; and (2) the two internationally broadcast "Focus on the Family Radio Interviews" with Grove Norwood of The Heart of Texas Foundation; and (3) the "Day with Dad at Darrington Penitentiary" DVD documentary, where you get to see The Heart of Texas Foundation volunteers and our special partners at ”Forgiven Ministry" bring children of inmate fathers into the Darrington once a year for a day with their dads. It is ”Forgiven Ministry" who has shared with us their wonderful model for bringing in the children. We are pleased to partner with them each year in other Texas prisons as well!

    These three short media resources will show you how our work equips men to disciple one another as they graduate from seminary, and how the "hearts of the fathers turn toward their children" (Malachi 4:6) after they experience the transformation of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in their lives. The Heart of Texas Foundation volunteers help bring family hope and reconciliation into a prison, and you can too!


    We are a lean grass-roots organization. We accept no state or federal funding. To preserve our constitutional access to Texas prisons with our historic programs, we must depend totally on "private funding." And with the help of people like you and churches like yours, we are making a difference in Texas and in other states. We need a growing donor base of people who believe in our work. Please pray about supporting us regularly. Click here to go to the Heart of Texas Foundation's "Donate" page, or click the Donate button on the above main menu!
