K-Life, an inter-denominational approach, is a youth ministry focused on mentoring, coaching, and disciplining today’s teenagers. Vilonia K-Life, in its second year, has a new full time staff member, Area Director Jordan Dodd. Jordan’s theme for this school year in Vilonia is “Not Ashamed” based on Romans 1:16. Dodd said, “Our vision is to network as many kids as we can to provide a positive reinforcement of Godly choices.”
Dodd originally calls San Diego, Calif. home although he was born in France where his parents were missionaries for a number of years. Following his college graduation from Taylor University in Indiana, he spent a year in Kanakuk Institute training for K-Life leadership. As part of this training, he did an internship with the Harrison K-Life chapter.
K-Life will be hosting a tail-gate at the Vilonia Home Coming, Friday from 5-7:30 p.m. Dodd is asking and inviting all to attend the tail-gate and come prepared for a good time prior to the game. Tickets for the BBQ tail-gate are $5 for students and $7 for adults.
K-Life is looking for 400 donors that are willing to donate $10 a month in support of Vilonia K-Life. K-Life of Vilonia is a non-profit organization that depends entirely on contributions from local supporters to carry out its mission to serve the youth of our community. All gifts are tax deductible. Donations may be made as a one-time or monthly donation at http://vilonia.klife.com.
K-Life’s plan is to support Vilonia teenagers through mentoring, coaching, and disciplining.
“It is so great to be a part of this wonderful community and it is so amazing to see how God has worked in Vilonia,” Jordan said. “I am so glad to be here and to work alongside the church to impact this community for Christ.” K-Life is partnering with the churches in the community that will see their youth departments grow as K-Life directs these teenagers toward them, based upon the choice of the individual.
Partnering with students, parents, churches, and the community K-Life’s aim is to affect the lives of Vilonia’s teenagers positively so that their lives will be greatly enriched as they prepare for life after high school and so they will have a huge impact on the community. All teenagers in grades 7-12 are welcome and encouraged to attend the club meetings. The first club meeting is planned for Oct. 23 at 7 p.m. at the VES (Vilonia Elementary School) Gym.
