David Young is the director of the Youth Ministry Institute. A graduate of Temple Christian and Ministry Team alumni, David attended John Brown University in Arkansas where he studied Electrical Engineering while starting the TFC Arkansas chapter. After working at TFC as the business administrator from 2012-2014, David moved to Texas to continue his education at Dallas Theological Seminary. While in Dallas, he married his high-school sweetheart, Samantha. They moved back to Ohio in the summer of 2017 to direct the YMI. David enjoys playing and producing music, designing and developing websites, and teaching the Word of God. His passion is to train the next generation of leaders who are committed to advancing the kingdom of God locally and around the world.
As a teen, God used TFC to grow Samantha and now she's excited to continue to be a part of this same work. After high school, Samantha studied English Education and Literature while at Cornerstone University. Shortly after graduating, she started her journey at Dallas Theological Seminary studying leadership. Over the past ten years, she has volunteered with TFC and multiple other ministries around the US in varying teaching and leading capacities. In her free time, you'll find her writing, enjoying the outdoors, learning something new or cooking with her husband, David. Samantha has a passion for leaders to know God by trusting and resting in the finished work of Christ. Therefore, she couldn't be more grateful to help lead and train the next generation of leaders through the YMI.
