Never lose your wonder

There's No "Junior" Holy Spirit!

KIDSLife and KIDS180 create an atmosphere where students become world changers.  Here they will come to know God’s character, experience His presence, and share His love. Our heart is to guide children into knowing who they are in Christ based on what God’s word says about them so they’ll be equipped to reach their life destiny.

What to expect? When? & Where?

We create an environment of love, joy, and peace by reflecting the complete adoration that Father God has for each tiny one that comes under our care. We meet physical, emotional, and spiritual needs by playing, dancing, worshiping, reading, holding, and rocking babies all service long. 

Nursery Room: 0 – 3yrs 

We also have an inviting & quiet room for nursing mothers attached to the nursery.

Children's Pastor

Leah DeVyldere

KIDSLife exists to support families in each child’s spiritual training. By teaching young people to give out what they have learned as soon as they have learned it, our goal is to create a perpetual cycle of genuine growth that reaches into future generations.

I am a mom first and a teacher always. Ministering around the globe since my early teens, I have a lifetime of experiences with all learning styles, ages, backgrounds and nationalities. Whether I am instructing, parenting, training teachers or writing curriculum, my passion is to share the good news about our true identities as beloved sons and daughters of God.

My husband Tony and I are enjoying the crazy journey of life with our 13 children through homeschooling, high school events, backpacking, kids in college, running summer camps and lots of sports! Teaching is a family passion, as my teens often work with me in KIDSLife Ministries.

We have also developed “Mid-Valley Learning Haven” for Home Learning Resources & Tutoring. Simply go to: to learn more.

Youth Pastors

Nathan & Chloe Andrews

The youth is the future of society. They are the next prominent generation. Impact them. Empower them.

Equip them to -not be confident in their place in the world “ahead of time”- but to be so confident in who HE is that no matter what happens in their lives, in their communities, or in society- they already have all the tools in their tool belt needed to guide them and others towards Gods Glory fulfilled.

Youth Group is how we get there. Our vision for youth group is to create a safe space for kids to come and experience Holy Spirit in freedom through impartation, practical teaching, radical encounters, consistent activation and encouraging community.

We believe that by allowing Holy Spirit to show us what our meetings look like on a regular basis, we are giving God the room to go to work in our hearts as the pastors, the hearts of our leaders, the hearts of the kids, the hearts of their families, and ultimately, the heart of our community.

We are "The Foundation" Youth Group

YOU ARE INVITED to be with us every Wednesday night for group

(excluding some holiday breaks)!

We meet in the Loft of the Life Training Center from 6:30pm to 8pm for games, a message, worship and small groups. Throughout the year we schedule fun beach trips, family style dinners, over-the-top all nighters and seriously so much more!

Whether we are gathered together to worship, hear a great message, or having fun just being together, we know that we are bringing Heaven to Earth! We know that we have a good Heavenly Father who loves to see His children: play, laugh, sing, learn, grow & be completely silly!
