On November 20, 2006 The God of Hope Ministries held its first class at the Travis State Jail Men’s Faith Based Dorm. In the ten years since, much has changed. We have received new wardens, new chaplains, new volunteers, moves into new buildings, inmates moving in and out… The list could go on. But through it all God has not changed! He has remained faithful to see us through the ups and downs and ins and outs.
We have grown from 13 male volunteers to our current count of 73! We have graduated 357 men from the Faith Based Dorm, helping them find hope and transformation through our intensive discipleship program. The volunteer base includes some of the very men who went through our faith based dorm program and now come back to share and encourage others.
As we prepare to launch our 19th men’s dorm, we continue to be grateful for God’s provision of curriculum, freedom to pray and study His word, and the awesome privilege to serve Him and watch as he changes men’s lives. To Him be the glory!
