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.

Jackson Hull was born and raised in Fort Worth, Texas. He went to Southern Methodist University to pursue a degree in Electrical Engineering where he felt The Lord calling him to Ministry. Jackson left SMU to attend the Kanakuk Institute where he spent a year intensively studying the Bible. He and his fiance, Natalie, have a passion for discipleship and are so excited to join the Denver KLIFE Family. Jackson enjoys hiking, sailing, playing volleyball, watching movies, playing video games, and reading! He is so grateful to get to serve the families and kids of Denver KLIFE!



Meg grew up in Shreveport, Louisiana and attended LSU-Shreveport while working with a youth group at a local church. She felt called to further pursue ministry, which led to her transferring to Baylor University to study Religion in the fall of 2013. Meg’s ultimate goal for youth ministry is for girls to have an intimate relationship with Jesus, and to find true identity in Him alone. The ultimate girly-girl, Meg is a freelance hair-stylist and make-up artist for weddings and special events. Some of her favorite things are spending time with friends, good conversations over cups of coffee, and doing life with her husband, Ben.

Hannah had the privilege of growing up in the Chicago Suburbs where she lived off of hot dogs and pizza! She now has the privilege of attending Colorado Christian University which means living in the beautiful Denver area! She loves hiking, reading, and dancing in the car to music! Youth ministry is something she is passionate about and she is so grateful for the opportunity to serve the KLIFE family! 

small groups

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 Curriculum

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.
