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, 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 Next Stepp Center

The Next STEPP Life Center is a nonprofit Christian organization offering life-affirming solutions to women, men and families facing unintended pregnancy and resources to pregnant and parenting women and their families.

They offer families “Life, Help, & Hope”; Life by counseling on life-affirming alternatives to abortion; Help through support, education, and providing material resources, and Hope as we present the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. Our clients receive free, confidential, easily accessible services.

The Next STEPP Center serves everyone regardless of age, race, ethnicity, religion, economic or marital status, however, because the majority of our clients are African American, they are particularly concerned that the lives of nearly 45% of all African American babies end in abortion. With that in mind, they are also the Next STEPP to the community as they Support, Treasure, Educate, Promote and Preserve a culture of life in the community.

You can give, pray, volunteer, mentor and more.

If you would like to participate in any of the above opportunities, please go here or call The Next Stepp directly at 727-896-9119 or go to www.nextstep.org.

Created 

“Created Is A Non-Profit, Non-Denominational Christian Organization Committed To The Restoration Of Vulnerable Women Involved In The Sex Industry To An Understanding Of Their Value, Beauty, And Destiny In Jesus Christ.”

They believe that a growing, thriving relationship with Jesus is the context in which vulnerable women will find hope for emotional, physical, and social healing from the wounds that sexual exploitation and their involvement in the sex industry has inflicted. By offering new life through a relationship with Jesus Christ, a message of identity (a name), a place for belonging and community (a place), and advocacy for the women (a voice) they hope to bring light, hope, and transformation to women caught in prostitution and other forms of sexual exploitation.

Get involved through prayer, street outreach, club outreach, transport, mentoring, life skills training, donations and more.
