  Joel 2:27-29    28 "It will come about after this That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind; And your sons and daughters will prophesy, Your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions.  29 "Even on the male and female servants I will pour out My Spirit in those days ..


Giving all thanks to our Lord and Savior for allowing us this opportunity to serve the young people of the Central Conference as Director alongside Chacoryia Burns, Central Conference President.

We give thanks to the sensational leadership of the Central Conference, Rev. Hartford (Bernice) Lee, Presiding Elder & Consultant of the Daytona Beach District; Rev. Henry L. (Beverly) Postell, II, Presiding Elder & Consultant of the North Orlando District and Rev. Valarie J. Walker, Presiding Elder of the Orlando District, our amazing Pastors, the phenomenal Missionaries that support us and the young people who continue to Glow, Grow and Go for Christ.

In this millennial generation, full of infinite influencers, the work of the YPD allows our youth to build a solid foundation to traverse the ever-changing world. This foundation is rooted in a love for Christ and an expectation to engage our communities through mission.  We believe strongly that if you train up a child in the way they should go, they will not depart when they become adults. This message guides our programming and projects throughout the conference year. We aim to tackle real-world issues faced by our young people and facilitate open communication as we seek answers through Christian faith.

The Central Conference Young People and Children’s Division (CCYPD) is operated under the purview of the Women’s Missionary Society. The CCYPD comprised of 7 area societies, throughout 12 Counties; it is the young people in the local church within each area that inspire, change and motivate the work of our conference.  Alongside the following Area Director and Area Presidents, the work of the CCYPD is always forwarded. Our Conference is divided into seven Areas: The Daytona Beach District: The Lillie M. Pickett Area – Latreace Flynt, Area Director, Tyla Plowden, Area President ; The Mary L. Jennings Area – Edith Baines, Area Director, Kayla Davis, Area President; The Morse-Tucker Area – Dana Biggs, Area Director, Jaleondra Abel, Area President. The North Orlando District: The Laura Sampson Area – Nicie Allen Parks, Area Director; L.R. Randall Area – Connie Hull, Area Director, Lakeja Simmons, Area President. The Orlando District: Jessie D. Smith Area – Trenisha Simmons, Area Director, Lia Williams, Area President.; Reed-Cole Area - Ranata Wright, Area Director, Aaliyah Seabrook, Area President.  

In this new Quadrennial 2015 – 2019, we are excited for the work that will be done and the lives that will be changed in and through the young people of the central conference. On behalf of the Officers and Directors of the Central Conference Young People and Children’s Division, we are fired up and ready to serve the people of Central Florida and beyond!
