Charity spotlight: Tri-Lakes KLIFE

For Tri-Lakes KLIFE, it's all about reaching out to teens, rather than waiting on them to visit.
For Tri-Lakes KLIFE, it’s all about reaching out to teens, rather than waiting on them to visit.

The chapter director of Tri-Lakes KLIFE, a non-profit youth ministry based in Branson, puts it this way about the organization’s mission:

“Our mission is to walk alongside these students and show them the love of Jesus Christ through consistent and authentic friendships,” Robert Bruce said. “We have realized that the best way to build trust with the students is by being consistent and available. With social media and text messaging so prevalent in today’s world, face-to-face contact and hand-written notes go a long way in building trust and authenticity. We want these students to know that we care and, by doing so, it will open up an avenue for us to share the Gospel with them.”

The Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to call Tri-Lakes KLIFE one of its charities. The tournament, part of the PGA’s Tour stop, has gifted almost $14 million for children’s charities in the past 27 years.

About Tri-Lakes KLIFE

KLIFE TriLakes-logo

Tri-Lakes KLIFE is a non-profit youth ministry dedicated to impacting the lives of local youth with the gospel of Jesus Christ. The organization builds genuine friendships in order to earn the right to proclaim the truth of Scripture, and loving students regardless of their response.

In essence, KLIFE Tri-Lakes spends its time going to students, rather than expecting and waiting for students to visit. On any given day, a staff member or volunteer leader hangs out with students in the school lunch room, at sporting events, pep rallies, plays and other school functions.

More so, the organization spends time with students in other creative ways, such as assistant coaching, outdoor activities, sharing a meal and so forth.

Weekly club meetings for middle school groups and high school groups include fun games before turning attention to the Bible.

Monthly events are focused on drawing students in who would never be found at church. The groups share the gospel and encourage them to get involved in clubs or a small group, and hopefully church as well.

The guiding verse for Tri-Lakes KLIFE is 1 Thessalonians 2:8, which reads, “We cared so much for you that we were pleased to share with you not only the gospel of God but also our own lives, because you had become clear to us.”
