WHAT is KLIFE?
Stillwater KLIFE is a community-wide interdenominational Christian ministry centered in Stillwater, Oklahoma. KLIFE works alongside churches, schools, and families to teach and encourage kids to be strong in the Lord in spite of all the worldly pressures they face as teenagers.
The heartbeat of KLIFE is discipleship. We get to a place of authentic discipleship by emphasizing our small group ministry. Kids can join small groups that meet weekly or bi-weekly with a KLIFE staff or volunteer leader to learn more about God and how to develop an abiding relationship with Him. These groups allow for spiritual growth and development of peer relationships that encourage accountability, individual growth, and support.
In addition to our small group strategy are the more visible components of our ministry: weekly Klub meetings, activities, events and retreats. Klub consist of songs, games, skits, and talks that contain a lesson with a relevant life application from the Bible.

Travis hails from the great state of Texas, and graduated from Texas A&M University in 2013. Landon was born and raised in Missouri, and graduated from Mizzou in 2015. Both Travis and Landon have worked at Kanakuk Kamps for multiple summers (where they first met), and both have attended the Kanakuk Institute. Best of all- they are getting married on September 22nd! They are excited to call Stillwater home and passionate to see the gospel of Jesus Christ shared with families and students in our community.

The heartbeat of our ministry is small groups. Our small groups are made up of boys or girls in the same grade. They are led by college students who have a heart for ministry and working with kids. Small groups offer our students the opportunity to build Christ-centered friendships in a smaller, more intimate setting. Our prayer is that through small groups, our students will grow in Christ together!
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.
