YELOline Initiative, Inc.

Goal: $3,000.00

Specific Need

As Yeloline Initiative has become a fulltime commitment with an aggressive prison load we are looking at increased travel costs and time commitments in addition to growing administrative responsibilities.


Our mission is to take hope behind bars to the unseen population of our society to encourage them in their individual pursuit of rectification and reconciliation.


Hi, we’re a husband and wife duo that performs and records original music.  A special opportunity that God has given us throughout our career is to perform in prisons; from minimum security and super-max facilities to death row cell blocks. It is very humbling to present our music and share hope  with  men and women who have found themselves in the darkest of  circumstances. Most people are trying to get out of prison. We keep trying to get back in.


So what does YELOline mean?

In one of the facilities where we perform there are six, phone booth sized  cells on the balcony of each cell block. Inmates, shackled hands and  feet are escorted into the small cells. A yellow line is painted on the  cement floor about three feet in front of the cells.  For these men, this is where church takes place.


We are not allowed to physically cross the painted yellow line.  But for an hour we play music that breaks down that barrier and brings  peace and hope, conviction and encouragement. That yellow line is de-humanizing for the inmates on the other side of it. But for us it became a song that communicates the heart of what we do: Take the reality of Jesus Christ to the deepest, darkest place and leave His hope behind.
