Thank you for visiting the East Texas Hospitality House Website!

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. For those who travel more than 300 miles a 2 night stay is possible. This ministry provides lodging, meals, and spiritual encouragement. We strive to show the love of Christ in a real and practical manner. We are truly a "House That Love Built", having been built by all volunteer workers. 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.  Please understand that if you cannot make it we need you to call and let us know. We hold rooms for folks and if you cannot make it someone else also lost the opportunity to use the room.  Please drop us a note, and join us in prayer so all needs may be met in this place. May God bless you and yours as we seek His will for all we do.


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