For over sixty years the General Youth Division (GYD) has paved the way in fundraising for the United Pentecostal Church International (UPCI) through Sheaves for Christ (SFC). The purpose of Sheaves for Christ is reinforced by the motto of the UPCI: the whole Gospel to the whole world by the whole church. This year $4,394,006.04 was raised for the offering, allowing for the first $1 million allocation to Global Missions. Sheaves for Christ not only supports Global Missions but many other sponsored ministries including Apostolic Youth Corps, Bible Quizzing, Tupelo Children’s Mansion, and North American Youth Congress.

For the past several years, the GYD has developed the Real McCoy contest. To qualify, a student must raise at least $1,000 for SFC. This year, the GYD invited thirty-six Real McCoys to St. Louis for the weekend in honor of their $100,000+ … Read More »

2013 Real McCoys Highlight

Posted by admin in Sheaves for Christ. No Comments

2nd November

High school junior Dalton Dismore raised $6,454.88 for Sheaves For Christ in 2012. It was the second largest SFC offering from a student in North America that year and earned him recognition as The Real McCoy for the Texas District.

“The Real McCoy” is the title given to the top student SFC fundraiser (minimum contribution of $1,000) for their respective districts during a given year. As a reward, the General Youth Division invites all Real McCoys to St. Louis, Missouri for a weekend celebration. Dismore said The Real McCoy Weekend 2012 was amazing. More importantly, interacting with other Real McCoys inspired him to dream bigger in 2013.

“Meeting people, hearing their stories—I wanted to do it again,” Dismore said.

So he and several other 2012 Real McCoys went back to work. One year later, their results are in. This year’s class of … Read More »
