Calvin Yoder was born and raised in an Amish family and made the choice to leave the community at age 16. He was arrested after robbing his parents at a young age and found himself in prison. While incarcerated in Westville, Indiana, he received a flyer for the Life Learning Program and began spending time in Bible studies with Dan Swets. Through God's faithfulness, Calvin's eyes were opened to who Jesus is and he surrendered his life to Christ.
