On May 8 we welcomed fellow Elkhart Rotarian and Lifeline Youth Ministries executive director Darrell Peterson to share updates about lifeline, including their new expansion project, the Lifeline Hub, a place that provides a safe, family-like atmosphere for youth from 1st-12th grade. The Hub will comprise 36,000 square feet, is centrally located near Prairie and Hively, and will serve over 1,000 kids per year. 
Lifeline's mission is to share God’s love by providing inner city youth with caring role models, teaching basic life skills, developing student leaders and connecting students to their local schools and churches. Lifeline is a full-cycle of engagement ministry that provides a safe, family-like atmosphere for youth from 3rd-12th grade. While at club, youth can enjoy a variety of activities: gym time, games, tutoring and the friendship of others. They receive a Bible lesson and participate in a small group interaction as it relates to the lesson. Club members also get the opportunity to earn points redeemable for prizes. Prizes can be anything from a bag of Takis up to Bikes. It all depends on how motivated they are.
