“Advancing the Kingdom Award”

Recipient – Mount Olivet Children, Youth and Young Adult Ministry


This year’s ADVANCING the KINGDOM AWARD goes to the Youth and Young Adult Ministry. Each third Sunday without fail this ministry serves with distinction, singing and ushering. Children’s Church has well met the needs of our younger congregants through participation and dedicated workers. Our children, youth, and young adults accompanied by other members surprised Pastor Billups in July at the Louisiana Missionary Baptist State Convention, Lake Charles, Louisiana. The occasion was the Annual Dean’s Hour, Pastor Billups is the State Dean. The singers and musicians kept the Convention awestruck as they praised God and supported Pastor Billups. The entire delegation was dressed in bright gold monogrammed shirts and black slacks and skirts. Their authentic praise and presence garnered requests for our ministry to appear at other churches. One request was recently accepted in Farmerville, LA.

This ministry presented a musical with the adult choir in the month of September entitled, “Make His Praise Glorious”. Again in December the children, youth, and young adults presents a Christmas drama, “Come to Bethlehem and See” complete with music.

Many of the members of this ministry participated in Christian Education classes and in the Music and Ushers ministries in the Tenth District Missionary Baptist Association in March and August.

Members of this Ministry were finalists in an essay competition in February at the Martin Luther King Foundation’s Annual Program. They received monetary prizes from first to third place finishes.

We salute all members of the Children, Youth, and Young Adult Ministry of our church and those who work with them. We especially recognize Yolanda and Donald Armstrong for their faithful and unselfish service as leaders of the Ministry.

Thank you all for your sacrifice and service.

Pastor Oliver W. Billups Jr.
