BACKGROUND INFORMATION:

Seventy to eighty percent of children with incarcerated parents are likely

to go to prison. Grove Norwood’s message will speak to how to turn that

around. The ultimate action of all the bad decisions is the impact it has

on children.

Grove Norwood is the founder and Chairman of the Heart of Texas

Foundation, Inc., an organization whose focus is bringing a

biblically-based, Christ-centered

message of hope, forgiveness, and reconciliation to inmates in the prisons

of Texas and the United States.

The Heart of Texas Foundation was born out of a tragedy in a small Texas

town just west of Houston. An award-winning documentary titled, “The Heart

of Texas,” now shares this incredible but true story with the world.

As a result of the prisoners’ viewing experience of the movie, the State

of Texas undertook to have the movie shown in all of the more than 100

Texas Prisons.

Then, in an historic move, the Foundation took the lead in helping to

establish a 4-year, fully accredited Seminary in a

maximum-security-prison, the first Seminary of its kind in Texas.

In the fall of 2011 Darrington Seminary began its first class of freshman

inmates
