About

OUR MISSION
We bring lasting hope to urban teens one relationship at a time through outreach, fellowship, mentoring and discipleship.
 
“Having thus a fond affection for you, we were well pleased to impart to you not only the Gospel of God, but also our own lives, because you had become very dear to us.”
I Thessalonians 2:8
OUR VISION
It’s our vision to enter into the daily lives of urban teens by investing in SLPS high schools, establishing trusting, influential relationships, and transformationally impacting students and families for generations to come.
 
WHAT MAKES URBAN K-LIFE DIFFERENT AND EFFECTIVE?
  • Urban K-Life Relationship Managers relocate their lives/ families to become a part of the St. Louis city community.
  • Relationship Managers live in the city community where the students live.
  • Relationship Managers and staff are present in the local public high schools of St. Louis city several days each week (coaching, academic support, volunteering).
  • Our Relationship Managers and staff currently have regular contact with students attending seven different city high schools.
  • Students from as many as ten city high schools have attend weekly Klub gatherings at Urban K-Life this year.
Urban K-Life Relationship Managers and staff lead weekly K-Life Klubs & small group bible studies, and engage in dozens of 1-on-1 hours with teens. Building quality relationships is the key to successful mentoring.
