A Word From Our Area Site Director

Blessings to you from the Antioch location of Kindred Life Ministries! I am Sarah Love and I have recently accepted the position of Antioch Program Director. I’m so excited to begin with our families. 

I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education from Bethel College, Indiana. Most of my 20’s I spent living overseas as a missionary including (3) years in Kenya as a teacher at a boarding school and (1) year in Albertville, France studying French full-time and thoroughly enjoying the cheese and pastries. I’m eager to get to know our young families and our team in Antioch.  I look forward to our great adventure ahead!

If I can help in any way, or you have any questions or if you are  looking for a place to serve as a volunteer, please contact me at 847-338-8587 or Sarah@KindredLife.org

Host Church Spotlight

St. Mark Lutheran Church in Lindenhurst

The Antioch Program at Kindred Life wants to take a moment and acknowledge to thank our host church.

Pastor Terry Breum and the congregation at St. Mark are passionate about the sanctity of human life and supporting young parents who choose to give life and parent their children.  For several years now they have graciously opened their doors and provided our Antioch Area Program a home.

Volunteer Spotlight

This year’s Volunteer of the Year is Ivan Garcia.  Ivan began volunteering with us last May as a mentor to our fathers.  He has thrown himself into this ministry with a passion and fire. He not only assists Steve with our Dad’s Life Education nigh, but he also regularly texts and calls our dads, takes them out to lunch, and meets them week after week at churches all around the area helping to find a place for these men to plug into.  In addition to reaching out to our dads, Ivan has reached across program areas to other dad mentors to brainstorm ideas, topics and direction for our  program. Ivan Garcia, thank you for passionately pursuing or vision to see young families thrive!
