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.

A JBQ Winning Attitude

Whether your quizzers are on the winning team, or the team that came up just a little short, it’s your job as a parent or coach to make sure they react the right way. Here are three keys to making sure your quizzers are prepared to handle the joy of victory and the agony of defeat.

Keeping JBQ Practice Fun and Engaging

Each year we start off our JBQ season reminding parents of our number-one goal for their children: We want them to have fun! Some may say this goal is not appropriate. It could be said a better goal would be for kids to have God’s Word hidden in their hearts or to have a team do well in competition. I contend, though, that if kids are having fun, both things will happen naturally.

Outreach Assimilation

As summertime approaches, you are probably planning your summer outreaches and ministry events. Summer can be very busy in the kidmin world, so it’s important for us to have an attack plan before June 1st rolls around. As vital as the event itself is to plan, it is equally crucial to have a plan of attack to get all those kids to come back to church on the weekends.
