My name is Daniel Youngblood, and I’m from Meadville, MS. I graduated from Mississippi College in May of 2022. I love writing music and poetry, the mountains, cooking food, and talking about the Chronicles of Narnia or anything else by C.S. Lewis.
Before I met Jesus I was pridefully seeking control of my own life and anxious about my insufficiency to do so. Then, when I was 13, I realized that he wanted a relationship with me, calling me to surrender control and trust his plan. Now I live a joyful, love-filled life in godly community pursuing God’s will for my life.
At Morrison Heights, I was brought into a community that was committed to the mission of God. I was discipled and taught how to read God’s word and apply it to my life. I was given opportunities to grow and lead, and I was expected to be on mission with my church.
I believe the Lord has called me to lead the charge to engage college campuses in Jackson and proclaim the gospel where it is not currently being proclaimed. To do this, I will encourage and challenge our students who do know the Lord to join me in living on mission right here in Jackson!
My prayer is that one day soon, all of the college campuses of Jackson will be full of passionate believers in Christ who are committed to proclaiming the gospel on their own campus. I pray that these campuses will all become missionary sending hubs from which the church can send out leaders all over the world to proclaim the gospel.
