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, ski 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 songs, games, skits, and talks that contain a lesson with a relevant life application from the Bible.

Hi everybody, my name is Megan Cullum and I get the privilege to serve here in Sheridan, WY!

I love the purpose of KLIFE- to impact the youth culture for Jesus Christ, 1 Thessalonians 2:8. Discipleship and fun is the great combination you will find here at KLIFE Sheridan. Join what God is doing in and through KLIFE. God Bless you!
Kendyll Ebert-Assistant Womens Director
Hello y'all! I'm Kendyll and I have been able to be a part of Sheridan KLIFE since 2013. Growing up in the same community I'm now serving in has lead to a great deal of amazing relationships. I am so blessed to be used by God in Sheridan to impact kids for His Kingdom. Our Chapter is pretty new yet, but I am super excited to see where God takes us!
Hazen Cox - Intern
Hi, my name is Hazen Cox. This year I have joined the KLIFE team as an intern, and I am so excited about the opportunity to be apart of this ministry. I am a Wyoming native, and I have been living in Sheridan for a little over a year now, studying Elementary Education at Sheridan College. Throughout the last few years, I have spent a lot of time serving in the community of Gillette, Wyoming and also internationally in Fond Blanc, Haiti. This year I am absolutely ecstatic to build relationships with the youth here in Sheridan, and to see them grow in their walk with Christ.
The heart of our ministry is small groups. Our small groups are made up of boys or girls in the same grade. They are led by young professionals and college students 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 small group has one or two KLIFE volunteers (college age or older) or a KLIFE staff member leading it. The volunteer has been through an interview process with a staff member, has been background checked, and has signed a commitment to follow Christ in their own life. The groups are assembled according first to 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.
A small group meets once a week and studies the Bible or a biblically-based book keeping in line with the KLIFE curriculum. The time they meet is determined by the leader of the group based on when everyone is able to get together.

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.
Each KLIFE Small Group may use the interactive LIVE Curriculum to help each group be effective and focused. Your KLIFE Staff Director will set you and your group up into the system.
