Scott Luebke, Club Beyond director, talks to middle school and high school students at the Nellis Air Force Base chapel, Aug. 9, 2012. Luebke spoke about life issues that impact the lives of young adults.

NELLIS AIR FORCE BASE, Nev. — Each Thursday evening the Nellis Air Force Base chapel comes alive with the voices of middle and high school youth coming together for games, snacks and a place to hang out with friends, while learning about teamwork and what Club Beyond is all about.

Club Beyond is a community-based, teen-oriented, non-denominational chapel program for middle school and high school kids. The program is sponsored by military chaplains as part of the Nellis AFB Protestant Chapel community.

According to the National Military Family Association, more than 600,000 military children are of middle and high-school-age.

Military Community Youth Ministries is known as Club Beyond in military communities. MCYM has 90 full-time staff and volunteers serving at more than 45 locations around the world.

Club Beyond started at Nellis AFB Feb. 2012. The program is run by Scott Luebke, Club Beyond Community Director, with the help of volunteers, parents, families and chaplains.

“We started the program from the ground up at Nellis AFB,” Luebke said. “Our volunteers are the key to running the program.”

“With Nellis having more than 1,100 youth associated with the base, this program provides a place for kids to get together once a week for fun mixers, crazy games, energetic music and a short message,” Luebke said. “Club Beyond exclusively serves military teens but anyone that can get to the weekly meetings is more than welcome.”

Currently weekly meetings are held at the Nellis AFB chapel from 6 – 7:30 p.m. every Thursday.
