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.

Reentry Studies Have Been Released!


We have released three Bible studies geared for women being released from incarceration. They are tools to aid in the success of reentering society, picking up life again, learning new and better habits, and keeping God central in decisions. They are now available for purchase for women, volunteers, chaplains, and ministries around the country.

During my time in the program, I fell in love with Jesus. I could truly feel His presence.

Faith dorm changed my life, and I believe it will change the prison system.

Our Programs

Every DU program is designed to lead men and women to salvation through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Our goal is to transform hearts from the inside out. 

Faith-Based Dorms

We operate multiple faith-based dorms that allow women to grow in their faith and live in accountable relationships. 

Ministry and outreach

DU also offers weekly programs and yearly outreaches that enrich inmates, including ministry to women on death row and in protective custody.
