This is the story of how the “Angola Bible College” began. This is the country’s first, 4-year accredited Bible College located in a maximum-security penitentiary, the Louisiana State Penitentiary, Angola, LA.

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, and ALL are long-term inmates. They will graduate in 4 years and continue their ministry by being transferred as “Field Ministers” to the other prisons of Texas, to assist the individual prison Chaplains.
