At the Bluffton Lions club meeting, April 7, 2015 Jerry Diller & Lynn Thompson provide the club with a program about the Rally Point youth center. The Center is a nonprofit Christian safe haven for teens in Lima, Ohio and is a ministry of the Youth for Christ. Currently, Rally Point is looking to expand its facilities by purchasing the south adjacent plaza, 1640 N. Main St, Lima, Ohio. The center serves the following people: Teens ages 12-18, teens within the north side of Lima, Elida, Bath, and Lima City students, Latch key teenagers, Single-parent families & low-income families.

The centers vision statement is…Rally Point exits to provide teens in the north side of Lima a safe, off the street, Christian environment. Through caring Christian adults, Rally Point seeks to provide positive influences to improve teens school work and personal decisions through a holistic model. We provide an alternative to hanging out with negative influences such as gangs, friends that are into drugs, and sexually impure relationships. We do all this by building relationships with teens during our afterschool programs and special events.
