The Heart of Texas Foundation College of Ministry

The Heart of Texas Foundation College of Ministry runs on a five-term year running from January to December. Each term is eight weeks of instruction. And in each of the five terms, every student is taking two courses. The student body of The Heart of Texas Foundation College of Ministry includes 133 men and 30 women. We are in the process now of identifying the Class of 2026. As the Lord wills, the Class of 2025 will be the first class to graduate both men and women.

Every morning before the instruction day begins, the men of The Heart of Texas Foundation College of Ministry sing in a general assembly of the student body.

The support of Texas Senator John Whitmire continues to impact the lives of men and women who have the longest prison sentences in the Texas Department of Criminal Justice (seen here shaking the hands of the student body).

Generous donors have made every resource in this picture possible. The education of the men and the women is entirely privately funded. All of the students in The Heart of Texas Foundation College of Ministry have long prison sentences. Part of the joy of watching the Lord work in the lives of the women is how every time they are challenged, they rise to meet the challenge.
