Youth Explosion at Mt. Gilead

The Annual Youth Explosion was held at Mt. Gilead MB Church on Saturday, August 24, at 10:00 AM.

We were blessed to have Bro. Jermaine Keyes, pastor of Pleasant Valley Baptist Church of Laurel, MS, for our dynamic motivational speaker. He spoke from 1Samuel 17:32-38, “When Your Faith Supersedes Your Fight.” He spoke admonishingly to the youth through his powerful message. Some of his words of wisdom follow: when you are favored by the Lord, you will come out not looking like what you have gone through. We should learn to handle the minute problems before we can handle the mega problems; and if you have the faith, God has the power. Everyone in attendance was blessed by his words of exhortation. Following the explosion, attendees enjoyed a hearty lunch. Sis. Cynthia McKenzie is the Youth Director. Bro. David McKenzie is the Youth Pastor, and Dr. Larry McKenzie is the Senior Pastor.
