David Boyd

Springfield, MO / Assemblies of God

David oversees Boys and Girls Missionary Challenge (BGMC), the children’s missions program for the denomination he belongs to. He and his wife, Mary were full-time children’s pastors in three great churches for seventeen years. The Boyds have been involved in children’s ministry for over thirty years. 

David is a graduate of North Central University with a BS in Pastoral Studies. He also has an MA degree in Theological Studies from the Assemblies of God Theological Seminary.

David’s passion is to instill a heart of compassion for missions in kids. He believes that kids can make a difference in the world through praying, giving, and being willing to go. Kids can be challenged to pray for missionaries, for countries, and for people groups. Kids can be challenged to sacrifice for missions so missionaries can have the supplies they need and so the needs of those less fortunate can be met. Kids can also be challenged to keep their hearts open to the call of God to become missionaries and to reach the world with the gospel message.

David has been the guest speaker at numerous conventions, retreats, camps, and other children’s ministry endeavors both here in the US and around the world. He has a big heart for missions, training teachers, and touching the lives of kids.

Camp Volunteers

I once heard what I thought was the perfect description of kids’ camp for a child. It was in an online article. The author was Dick Gruber. He described kids’ camp through the eyes of a child, as a week-long glimpse of what heaven is going to be like. I wholeheartedly agree with this statement. However, in the running of kids’ camps, kids are not the only ones that are a part of the kids’ camp experience. It’s the children’s pastors, moms and dads, and volunteers that help you achieve that goal for our kids.
