District ends partnership with evangelical ministry (November 2023)

FFRF has worked with Bolivar R-1 School District in Missouri to keep evangelical Christian ministry from imposing religion on students during student mixers.

A concerned district community member reported that a Christian youth group, K-Life, recently DJ’d at the Bolivar Middle School back-to-school student mixers. K-Life’s mission statement is “to point students to Jesus so they will know Him, Love Him, walk in surrender to Him and be equipped to point others to Him also.”

FFRF Anne Nicol Gaylor Legal Fellow Sammi Lawrence wrote to Superintendent Richard Asbill, who detailed for FFRF the steps the district is taking to ensure that students will be free from proselytization.
