ROSHARON, TEXAS:  THE DARRINGTON PENITENTIARY —  Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Forth Worth, Texas, announces its first campus inside a Penitentiary.  An historic first for Texas, SWBTS begins an unprecedented presence within the razor-wired walls of Darrington Penitentiary, a maximum-security prison in Rosharon, Texas, just south of Houston.  See the video of the official opening of Fall Semester, for the Class of 2015– all 38 long-term inmates, most of whom are doing life in prison.  They will graduate in 4 years and continue their ministry within the prisons of Texas.  Spiritual Transformation leads to moral rehabilitation.  More people do not create victims.
