Graduation at Darrington, 2018! Thirty-five new Texas Inmate “Field Ministers”

November 24, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

 

Our Graduation this year marked the fourth graduating class, thirty-five inmates, who are now equipped with four-year Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies degrees, awarded by the accredited Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  Seminary PhDs taught these men for four years of full time study.  These men are now approved by the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to be transferred to seven other prisons in Texas, in teams of 4-5 men, where they will be given unprecedented access to move about their prisons and minister to, counsel, mentor, and teach other inmates.  With this fourth graduating class, we are now in twenty-six prisons in Texas with Field Ministry teams.  That means 48% of all men in Texas prisons now have access to their own TEAM of Field Ministers! God willing, with continued support from our donors and partners, each year in May we will graduate another senior class and send them out to multiple prisons where they will actually LIVE full time as inmate “pastors,” counselors, teachers and mentors to their fellow inmates.
