Vision

How then will they call on him in whole they have not believed?
And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard?
And how are they to hear without someone preaching?
And how are they to preach unless they are sent?

Romans 10:14-15

Mission of The Heart of Texas Foundation:
We take the gospel of Jesus Christ into the darkest of places in our Texas prisons.

Vision of The Heart of Texas Foundation:
We provide the Texas Field Ministers Program as a service opportunity to long-term inmates in the Texas state prison system.

The Heart of Texas Foundation actively provides, as a no-cost service provider to TDCJ, the entire Texas Field Ministers Program and its ongoing development, integrity, and funding. 

The Texas Field Ministers Program includes two parts:
1.) training, 2.) service. 

1.) Education:
Bachelor of Arts in Applied Ministry. The Heart of Texas Foundation and The Texas Department of Criminal Justice recognize the Bachelor of Arts in Applied Ministry for Men at the Darrington Prison Unit and the for Women at the Hobby Prison Unit as the only degree qualifying the completion of the first step in becoming a Texas Field Minister. 

2.) Service:
The Texas Field Minister job opportunity provides men and women who have extremely long prison sentences the opportunity to display a new way of life by faithfully handling responsibilities that flourishing people enjoy to the benefit of themselves and everyone around them, even in the midst of difficult circumstances.

 a.) Qualification:  Maintain a G1, G2, or G3 custody level status while serving his or her peers through community, crisis, counseling, and faith-based ministries.

b.) Appointment: Remaining in good standing with the Field Ministers Advisory Council.

The Heart of Texas Foundation makes a lifelong commitment to men and women who enter the Texas Field Ministers Program and successfully keep their jobs as Field Ministers.
