Youth Missions GALA


We live in a unique moment in history. More than ever before the Gospel of Jesus Christ needs to be preached here locally and around the globe. We believe that students and leaders are being used by God to speak boldly and to give generously to advance the Kingdom of God.  Through the ministries of Speed the Light and Youth Alive we are able to bring hope to all ages, people groups, and generations. The torch of the Holy Spirit will be carried on to the next generation.

You are invited to join us for the 2021 Missions Gala where we will say thank you for partnering with STL and YAFL in this fight. Together, we will be touched by incredible stories, challenged to reach the lost, and we will celebrate what God will accomplish this year.

This gala is our annual charity gathering. Every church or supporter that has given $1,000 to STL or YAFL will receive 4 FREE tickets to attend.  Additional tickets are available for $50 per person. Come prepared to have a special night out, which will include a dual entrée plated dinner and a comedian who will make you laugh your socks off.

Comedian Andrew Stanley

Homeschooled preacher’s kids with finance degrees don’t usually quit their Budget Analyst jobs that provide health insurance to be stand-up comedians, but Andrew Stanley didn’t know that. He is now touring all over the country (as well as internationally) performing at clubs, festivals, fundraisers, churches, corporate events, bars with 4 people in them that “didn’t know there would be comedy tonight…” Andrew possesses a unique perspective that pairs well with his dry delivery and observational nature.   He was the winner of the 2017 Search for the South’s Funniest Accountant and in 2019, he was selected as a New Face of Comedy at Montreal’s prestigious Just For Laughs Comedy Festival.  Andrew’s parents are still alive so he works clean.

Pastor Josh Wellborn

After pursuing a career in broadcasting, Josh became a youth pastor in 2001 and has served in Brussels, Belgium; Seattle, Washington; and Michigan. Josh and Jennifer Wellborn served at Mount Hope Church in Lansing, Michigan which was nationally ranked in the Top 10 for Speed the Light giving.

In 2015, Josh was appointed as the Michigan District Student Ministries Director, where he oversaw both youth and children’s ministries. Then, in January 2018, he was appointed National Director of Assemblies of God Youth Ministries. Josh and Jennifer live in Ozark, Missouri with their four children—Isaac, Symon, Liza, and Stella.
