Discipleship Unlimited is a multi-faceted prison ministry based in Gatesville and Marlin, Texas
Since 1974, thousands of people inside and outside prison walls have felt our impact as we build up the body of believers through prayer, study, accountability, and Biblical truth. DU programs are designed to lead men and women to a lifelong commitment to Jesus Christ.
More than 600,000 people will leave prison this year, but many, because of fear of failure, are afraid to set goals or make a plan. We’re taking this fear head on with a curriculum geared for reentry and a team of X-offenders willing to return to prison to provide helpful tools.
