This prison population is the largest in the world. It is easy to enter and hard to escape. YELOline Initiative sponsors live concerts of original music to bring hope and healing to the men and women who for whatever reason have ended up incarcerated. We are convinced that the message of the Gospel shared through raw and honest songs touches hearts in ways that words cannot. We believe that offering the best we have to those in unfortunate circumstances helps to restore dignity and hope. The way we interact with those in prison is the way we interact with Jesus Himself......and it is always a humbling gift to spend time with Him.
Thank you so much for visiting our site. Please stay awhile. Check out the music, check out the message and mission. And please pray for us. God bless!
Checkout edenlight/YELOline Initiative at the 2022 Erie SONSHINE Festival. We'll be playing on the same bill with the "world famous" Scott Jones. This is a free outdoor event at Trinity Lutheran Church at the Corner of State and 38th Streets in lovely Erie, Pennsylvania.
YELOline was really happy to sponsor edenlight's first performance at Nobel Correctional in Caldwell, Ohio! It was great playing to a packed room and fellowshipping with the men there. We look forward to seeing them again in December to celebrate the birth of the Savior.
“When we are here in the chapel things are ok. But when we go back to our cell blocks
There is evil there. There’s dealers, There’s drugs. There’s gangs. It’s very hard and there’s
a lot to be afraid of. And that’s where satan attacks us….in our fears. Your fears will make you conform to your surroundings, but when you keep your eyes on God, you’re OK. That’s why it’s encouraging when people like you come in. You give us encouragement to get through and bring in the light.” Inmate at Trumbull Correctional
YELOline Initiative sponsored edenlight’s travel to Texas at the end February and early March where they performed three concerts at two prisons; the Stringfellow unit in Rosharon, TX an all male facility; and two concerts at the Plane Unit in Dayton, TX an all female institution. They played original music and shared the gospel with between 800 to 1000 inmates.
We are currently lining up a string of Florida facilities for October. Please keep our expansion into the Gulf Coast region in prayer. We look forward to increased opportunity to share the gospel and fellowship with inmates in this region of the country!
If you have a mid-mileage van in good condition that you you would like to donate or sell please contact us. As we are traveling more we need something that will reliably get us from here to there and back again.
We are currently 60% funded while trying to do 100% of the work. We could use a hand. Please prayerfully consider helping out. It's easy, just click the yellow button below!
And all of this is a gift from God, who brought us back to himself through Christ. And God has given us this task of reconciling people to him. For God was in Christ, reconciling the world to himself, no longer counting people’s sins against them. And he gave us this wonderful message of reconciliation. So we are Christ’s ambassadors; God is making his appeal through us. We speak for Christ when we plead, “Come back to God!”
2 Corinthians 5:18-20
“There’s a coin that’s lost
There’s a child that’s gone
There are days
That won’t end
They drag on and on
But there’s always hope
Even when all hope is lost”
