Barry Strickland has been successfully taking the Wild At Heart and Captivating message (authored by John & Stasi Eldredge) to thousands men and women that are residents of Texas Department of Criminal Justice in five different units.
He is currently networking to assemble teams to take this message to even more facilities across north Texas and across the nation.
He is actively involved with Faith Based Programs at the Johnston Unit in Winnsboro, TX and Beto Unit in Tennessee Colony, TX. Periodically, he is also part of the Kairos Team at Hutchins State Jail in Hutchins, TX.
“We not only have the biblical mandate to go to these brothers and sisters, but they will eventually be released into our neighborhoods. If we expect them to become honest productive members of society they need to know what that looks like. You cannot be what you do not know. Very few of these men and women have had positive male role models in their lives.”
Quotes from residents and former residents of TDCJ:
The rest of our team at NWA are also involved in aiding Barry in Texas, particuarliy with Boot Camps and occasionally in their own states working with the rehabilitation of those inmates who are coming out of the prison system through our Mentoring Program and Heroes Boot Camps.
