Chapel of Hope Ministries

Prison Ministry

The mission of Chapel of Hope Ministries is building inmate chapels for faith-based worship and education inside the fences of Texas prisons.

Mission: The mission of Chapel of Hope Ministries (COH) is to minister to the incarcerated in the Texas prisons and to build chapels inside the fences of every Texas prison; thereby providing every inmate with an opportunity for spiritual renewal.

Finding Jesus in Texas' supermax prison

This is an amazing story.

houstonchronicle.com HUNTSVILLE - One by one, the three tattooed toughs were ushered on Friday into the small cinder-block ante room deep inside Texas' highest-security prison, each shackled at the waist with handcuffs locked to a thick leather belt, flanked by two guards wearing flak vests, police batons and pepper spray. [...] after "Amazing Grace" was played on a harmonica, each was escorted to a galvanized horse trough filled with water at one end of the stark room, where their handcuffs were removed, the guards still at their sides. Reciting an evangelist's cadence of blessings and prayers, a prison chaplain then immersed each man in the cool water, proclaiming each to be "God's children, born again." Though back in shackles, the convicts smiled broadly as they were escorted out, trailing water in their soaked prison white uniforms as a small group of prison officials looked on. The scene inside the Estelle High-Security Unit - baptisms occur occasionally in state prisons, never inside the highest-security lockdown - marked the first fruits of a five-year initiative by state officials to put religion inside the state's toughest lockups, using convicts with long sentences as ministers to convert other prisoners to turn their lives around by becoming Christians. Estelle is one of six state prisons where the convict ministers have been deployed, part of a first class of 36 ministers that graduated 10 months ago from a prison seminary established four years ago at the Darrington Unit, outside Rosharon southwest of Houston. The third convict, Ryan Castro, 38, serving eight years for burglary in Aransas Pass, said he decided to be baptized after struggling with his religious conversion in prison. [...] too, did the correctional officers who ringed the room at the baptism, most of whom said they never expected to see such an event inside the razor-wire perimeter fence, with offenders serving such long sentences for serious crimes.
