We believe God created each of us for a purpose.

And that purpose is threefold. Love God. Love Others. Make Disciples.

As the Mississippi Assemblies of God District Office for Youth and Children, or MYC as we like to call ourselves, we strive to EMPOWER OUR LEADERS to RAISE UP STUDENT LEADERS to IMPACT THE WORLD FOR CHRIST. We believe that we can do this by creating a vibrant community that shares relevant resources, encourages one another, prays for each other and works towards the goal of introducing this generation to Jesus in a real and personal way.


Benefits of MYC

“Being a part of the MYC has been more than a blessing, it feels more like being part of a family. The relationships and the genuineness that comes from this diverse group is unmatched. Pastor David has truly been integral in making us feel welcomed and you can tell that everyone else shares his vision and that DNA for community. That ‘longing for belonging’ need is met with sheer genuine love.”

Will Ceaser, Youth Pastor

New Covenant Assembly

Why be a part of the MYC?

“In ministry it is really easy to feel like you are on your own trying to figure it all out, but since joining the MYC I have found a community of other ministers that I know I can lean on and grow with. From David Maxwell to every leader who is an integral part of this community the MYC has kept me encouraged and pointed in the right direction of changing the lives of students for the kingdom of God.”

Grant Westbrook, Associate Pastor

Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion – it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.

Billy Graham

Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves. Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Philippians 2:3-4

God cannot give us a happiness and peace apart from Himself, because it is not there. There is no such thing.

C. S. Lewis

Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable–if anything is excellent or praiseworthy–think about such things.

Philippians 4:8

Team Leadership vs Self Leadership 

Do you prefer Team Leadership or Self Leadership?  This thought came to me as I was listening to the new book by Michael Hyatt and Daniel Harkavy “Living Forward.”  A quote about self leadership shared by Daniel really jumped out at me.
