Some Stuff You Need to Know About Me

   My name is Bryan Arender. I'm a retired law enforcment officer from the great state of Texas, with over fourteen years of experience with the Nacogdoches County Sheriff's Department, the MTC Correctional Facility, Diboll, Texas, Newton County Correctional Facility, and Hunt County Sheriff's Department, Greenville, Texas,and other law enforcement services. Much of my career has been in the area of correctional facility oversight,   being responsible for the care and supervision of incarcerated felons, and general tasks associated with keeping respective counties and cities safe from crime and to enforce the peace.

   When I started, I was apprehensive about the tasks, having the idea that what I was doing was considered by many people to be a thankless job, along with the insufficient pay that came with it. After some time, I turned these thoughts and frustrations over to the Lord Jesus Christ. He opened my eyes to the fact that I could be a positive influence on those who had committed crimes and felt that no one either cared for their situation or that this lifestyle was all they knew, and saw no way out. I saw all of this as not just some career choice, but as a ministry to the "least of these"(Matthew 25:40).

  My ministry also included surviving hurricanes, a broken back, watching the remains of the Columbia Space Shuttle falling on the facility parking lot in 2003, and all too often having to deal with people who possessed challenging ideas and attitudes that often pushed my patience to the limit. However, I also had the joy of hearing that former inmates had turned to Jesus Christ and were now getting their lives in order and making something of themselves.

  I had to retire in 2014 due to a broken back and the closing of the facility where I served. I then asked the LORD, "What now?" He soon impressed upon me the idea to distribute His Word to correctional officers not only in Texas, but in other states such as Louisiana, Oklahoma, Missouri, Arkansas, and wherever I feel led to travel to offer the Scriptures to the men and women of law enforcment who need all the support they can get.

  I am ordained as a Minister of the Gospel through Christian Global Outreach Ministries and commissioned to provide all and any Christ-based service to the law enforcement community and other public servants as needed or requested, all for the glory of God and the spread of His mighty Word. I am available to preach the Word, share my testimony, and discuss topics covering law enforcement, prison issues, and methods of effective ministry to incarcerated individuals and the officers who oversee them.

   Please feel free to contact me anytime at my Email address: baaaab2016@icloud.com or call me at (903) 513-6546. I will be glad to talk with you and to work together for the glory of God and the need for all people to come to Christ (John 14:6; Acts 4:12; Romans 8:37-39, 10:9-10; 2 Peter 3:9). Thanks for visiting.
