Mike Jefferson, Director of Middle School Youth
Email: mjefferson@mccag.org

I have lived in the central Virginia area for all of my life, and had the privilege to be raised in Church by a Godly family. I graduated from New Kent High School in 1998. In March of 2000 I married the most amazing woman, my wife Drema. Drema and I have always felt a call to ministry, and in 2004 we started working as volunteer youth pastors for the Church of God church I grew up in as a child. In 2007 we started to further our pursuit in our call to ministry. We attended the calling and ministries program, followed by the Ministerial Internship Program through the Church of God where upon completion I received my ministerial credentials. In the summer of 2011 we felt God calling us out of the season of life we were in and the church we were volunteering at to start a new adventure with Him. We left that church in the fall of 2011 and God led us to MCC. It was a short time after we started attending here that we were able to connect with the student ministry here. In January 2012 we started working with the amazing middle school students here at MCC. In June of 2013 I started working as the director of middle school ministry here and it is where I currently serve now, having the privilege to work alongside and minister to what I believe are the greatest middle school students ever. 

My wife and I have a beautiful and amazing daughter that God blessed us with in June of 2005. We have been truly blessed and are blessed to be a part of what God is doing here at MCC.
