Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies
Who Will Train the Women?
One of the common questions we receive is, “Who will actually teach the women in the training portion of the Texas Field Ministers Program?”
The Texas Field Ministers Program provided by The Heart of Texas Foundation is not a volunteer-driven program. The Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies is an accreditation-seeking degree which requires all professors who teach in the school to be meet doctrinal and accreditation requirements. Accreditation requirements help elevate and protect the quality of education the women will acquire in the course of their studies. Women will teach women. This means that the women who teach as professors must have the academic credentials to teach in their given subject area. The Women’s Advisory Council, which served from January 2019-June 2020, represents the qualified women who will step into this most precious stewardship—the discipleship of the women who will serve as Texas Field Ministers.

What courses are in the curriculum?
The Heart of Texas Foundation is excited to provide the Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies to women with extremely long prison sentences in Texas.
Many will argue that so many women who will have the opportunity to leave prison should be allowed to enter the Texas Field Ministers Program. Our calling is to women with extremely long prison sentences who may never have the opportunity to live anywhere but prison.
The Texas Field Ministers Program begins for a woman with an extremely long prison sentence who applies and is accepted to begin as a student at the Field Ministers Training Center for Women at the Hobby Prison Unit.
Curriculum for the Bachelor of Arts in Biblical Studies is an accreditation-seeking degree through the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS). SACS is the same accrediting body that accredits the degrees from all of our state colleges in Texas such as Texas A&M University, Baylor University, the University of Texas and many more.
