THE TEXAS “FIELD MINISTERS” — GRADUATES TRANSFERRING IN TEAMS TO OTHER PRISONS IN TEXAS TO SERVE THEIR LONG SENTENCES AS MINISTERS, COUNSELORS, MENTORS, PREACHERS, EVANGELISTS, AND PLANTERS.

This page is showcasing the amazing milestone Texas has reached:  the sending of our Darrington Seminary Graduates out to other prisons in Texas, as newly appointed inmate “Field Ministers”.  The story is truly amazing, historic, and unique in the world of corrections.  Nowhere in the world is a prison system doing what Texas is doing.  This has been made possible through a powerful partnership with The Heart of Texas Foundation; the Texas Department of Criminal Justice; the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary; Senator John Whitmire, Chairman of the Texas Criminal Justice Committee; and Lieutenant Governor Dan Patrick.

If Texas can do it, your state can do it!
