Maurice and Samantha McDavid

Youth, the vibrant force of any organization, church family, and nation. Youth are important to the United Pentecostal Church of DeKalb.  They are integregated in just about every program.  Led by Asst Pastor Maurice McDavid, they take part in many weekly activities: Youth prayer, Comfort Care services, Bible Quizzing, Worship services.  Through out the year, special activities, fund raising, and events are planned: Youth convention, seasonal parties, SFC relay, special outings and trips like National Youth Convention, Camps, Banquets, and youth services and revivals.

It makes for a busy calendar, and a team approach is needed for the various events. Brother McDavid is an administrator, Principal, in the West Chicago School System, beginning his role in July 2020.   His wife, Samanatha teams up with him on many different projects.

She also was elected to the local school board in 2019, where she has served as Board Presdent, and now serves as Board Secretary.
