Our New Director of Promotion
We are pleased to announce the appointment of Michael Thomas (Alabama District Youth President) as the new director of promotion for UPCI Youth Ministries!

Michael has served the Alabama District Youth Department in multiple leadership capacities. He has exhibited incredible leadership as a sectional youth director, district youth secretary, and district youth president, a position he has held for the last eighteen months. For the past eleven years, he has served at Church on the Rock in Gadsden, Alabama (Pastor Stan Davidson) in many local church roles including evangelism director, youth pastor, hyphen pastor as well as associate pastor. He attended Gateway College of Evangelism/Urshan College and continues his educational pursuits through Hope International University of Fullerton, California.

He met his beautiful and charming wife, DeAnna, at an Alabama youth camp, and they have been married for eleven years. They are parents to a five-year-old, blue-eyed ray of sunshine named Myla Joy. Myla rarely meets a stranger, and if she does, she quickly converts them to a friend. Michael enjoys going on adventures and spending quality time with his “girls.” His interests are running, kayaking, and golfing. His passion is soul-winning, disciple-making, and serving this incredible generation of Apostolic students.

We look forward to the Thomas family assuming their new role on January 1, 2018. Please pray for them as they begin their transition to St. Louis, and join us in extending a warm welcome as they join the YM Executive Team!
