October 2020 – After growing up in violence-inflicted Chicago, youth pastor Terrance Wallace wanted to make a difference in the lives of underserved young men. So he founded the InZone Project. The project currently consists of Wallace as the dual-guardian for seven young Black men, and he has plans to serve more.
With each young man’s parents’ or guardians’ involvement, Wallace has moved them to his suburban home. By doing so, Wallace is giving them a better opportunity for education, discipleship, daily devotion, and a future with Christ at the center. These things were not available in their prior neighborhoods.
“It all started because God spoke to me to go do this,” said Wallace. “I’ve had to turn down funding because people wanted to not have the spiritual aspect, but I can’t do InZone without introducing the Christ element.”
