Kory & Alison Lantz ’09

Young Alumni of the Year 

After graduating in 2009, Kory and Alison (Gingrich) moved to the northwest side of South Bend and started building relationships with their neighbors. Their passion for youth, hospitality and culture drove their decision to put down roots just 15 minutes away from Bethel. The Lantzes now serve at Transformation Ministries, an organization that provides support for middle school and high school students living in the Keller Park area. One of several avenues the Lantzes use to reach their neighborhood is Iron Sharpens Iron (ISI), a youth leadership program they started, named after Old Testament verse Proverbs 27:17. In ISI, neighborhood youth spend time eating, talking, holding each other accountable, and bearing one another’s burdens. The Lantzes also run the Urban Ministry Experience with Bethel students, host study tables, and run Greater Impact Lawn Care – a for-profit business to teach youth how to work through meaningful employment opportunities.
