Texas Field Ministry

September 6, 2019 by · Leave a Comment 

For nine years, The Heart of Texas Foundation has spearheaded the vision for Field Ministry in Texas. As of 2019, Texas Field Ministers have successfully served the male prison population for more than five years. Currently, 162 Field Ministers serve in 33 prison units across Texas or 55% of the male prison population within the Texas Department of Criminal Justice.

Men serving extremely long sentences apply, are accepted, and study for four years to become a Field Minister upon their graduation from the Darrington Prison Extension of Scarborough — The College at Southwestern.

The Heart of Texas Foundation privately funds the Bachelor of Science in Biblical Studies earned by four classes at the Darrington Prison Unit in Rosharon, Texas — a degree granted by the SACS and ATS accredited, Scarborough College at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.  The Darrington Bible College is privately funded by The Heart of Texas Foundation donors.

Texas’ Darrington Penitentiary: A New Seminary

The first three cohorts in the historic Darrington Seminary, Rosharon, Texas.
Funded by The Heart of Texas Foundation donors and supporters.

The Darrington Penitentiary Seminary, an extension campus of The Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, is privately funded by The Heart of Texas Foundation donors. This picture was taken right after Governor Rick Perry’s historic visit to the Seminary in July of 2012, where he visited with the men, shared his heart with them, and encouraged them to persevere in their studies and their desires to give back “betterness instead of bitterness” and to serve out their long-term sentences in service to others as Field Ministers in prisons throughout Texas.

The Heart of Texas Foundation welcomes Governor Rick Perry to the Darrington Seminary, an extension campus of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary.
