dad's calling... It all started when…
Ministries have unique beginnings. Our dad, Tommy, a man who spent his life and career working to teach, coach, mold, and shape young people into responsible Christian men and women, began to volunteer at a local agency working with juveniles in a correctional facility.
Upon leaving the facility, one young man was later incarcerated and wrote Tommy requesting Bible study material. After sending several studies to him, he indicated they were too difficult.
Tommy responded by sending a devotional book. The young man was extremely excited and later wrote requesting a book for another inmate. Soon, others began to write with similar requests.. Dad’s Calling had unofficially begun!
After six books were sent, Tommy was called home to be with the Lord. A wonderful woman who also served at the local facility volunteered to continue Tommy’s work by sending a devotional book when requests were received. During the first year, 26 books were sent. Then, an explosion of requests occurred! Tommy’s family joined in to help and to continue his legacy of sharing Christ and shaping lives.
One year later, Dad’s Calling now sends over 100 devotional books per month to prisoners in the state of Texas! Requests continue to increase monthly and books have been sent to 42 different prisons. Inmates share how this ministry is affecting their lives.
