what is klife?
KLIFE is a community-wide, interdenominational Christian ministry of discipleship and fellowship for youth and their families. Through a variety of activities (Klubs, small group Bible studies, mission trips, and monthly events), KLIFE kids grow in their faith and have lots of fun in the process. They learn that following Christ and discovering His plan for their life is the most exciting adventure of all and that they can count on friendship and support from leaders and peers who care.
KLIFE works alongside churches and families in the community to teach and encourage kids to be strong in the Lord in spite of all the negative pressures they face as teenagers. KLIFE networks kids from different churches, and those without a church affiliation, to build positive, Godly relationships that can withstand the negative peer pressure so prevalent in today’s youth culture.
The heartbeat of KLIFE lies in the ability to build relationships with kids and bring the content of God’s word to bear on those relationships. Our desire is that kids would choose to participate in one of our small groups led by our staff and volunteer leaders. The purpose of these groups is for kids to gain a greater knowledge of God’s word, build Godly relationships with peers, and have access to a mentoring leader to come alongside them as they navigate those difficult adolescent years. Supporting and surrounding our small group strategy are the more visible components of our ministry: weekly Klub meetings, activities, events, and retreats. Weekly meetings consist of games, skits, worship and talks that contain a lesson with a relevant life application from the Bible.

The heart of our ministry is small groups. Our small groups are made up of boys or girls in the same grade, and they are led by our volunteer leaders who have a heart for ministry and working with kids. Last year our leaders spent over 14,000 hours with their small group kids!
Each one of our small groups is led by KLIFE volunteers (college age or older) or a KLIFE staff member. The leaders have been through an interview process with a staff member, have been background checked, and have signed a commitment to follow Christ in their own life. The groups are assembled according first by gender, then by groups of friends possibly covering a couple of grades, but are purposeful in bringing groups of kids together to build accountability relationships.
KLIFE small groups meet once a week to study the Bible or a biblically-based book, but our leaders also love spending time with their kids at school, sporting events, or for a quick run to Sonic.

LIVE is a digital curriculum that gets kids into the Bible and the Bible into kids. LIVE crafted lessons are easily understood, with principles that our leaders can grasp and pass along to students. Plus, the lessons emphasize discussion, dialogue, and meaningful connections among the group. This allows leaders and students to just enjoy spending time with one another and each will thrive with this curriculum. For more info, check out LIVE Curriculum.
