The East Texas Baptist Prison Ministry Hospitality House exists to minister to families of incarcerated men in the units near the Tennessee Colony area. We are open to family members who live more than 200 miles from our facility. This ministry provides lodging, meals, and spiritual encouragement. We strive to show the love of Christ in a real and practical manner. We pray that all will see God working in great and mighty ways as we work to provide worship services, Bible studies and ministries to help families build strong and lasting relationships.   PS: IF you hear of a special event at one of the units please call and let us know. Help us make arrangements to accommodate if we can. Any suggestions would be appreciated please send us a note!
God bless you and yours. 


The East Texas Hospitality House is a ministry of Dogwood Trails Baptist Association.
