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!
"It's been a long time getting here." Those are the first words off of edenlight's newest release "between a garden and a city". It certainly feels like it's taken forever to get this one wrapped up. After traveling through a few years of pandemic, isolation, social unrest and a lot of miles throughout Texas, Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania visiting incarcerated brothers and sisters, this one is finally done and it covers a lot of territory!
Where ever you are, you're not too far to join us for this special event. We're privileged to have guest performances from Isaac Bicko, Justin Robbins and Mike Reed. This is a free event with some light snacks and beverages. Join us at Hatch Hollow, 245 Chestnut Street, Meadville, PA. 7:00 to 9:00 PM January 4th, 2023
YELOline is currently scheduling another edenlight foray into Texas. We have a few dates on the books for late February and are praying for open doors for at least three more institutions. Also pray that we can schedule a few correctional facilities in Louisiana as well.
“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
Praise God that edenlight was able to purchase a good used van on their YELOline Initiative sponsored "Palm Trees & Prisons Tour" in October. Having spent it's life in the Tampa, Florida area the van is experiencing a little shock in Northwest Pennsylvania's sub-zero temperatures. Thanks for all who prayed for this resource.
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”
