Los Angeles, California

Due to COVID-19, AYC 2020 has been canceled. AYC 2021 destinations will be released in the summer of 2020.

Participants will join missionaries David and Monique McGovern in ministering to the Los Angeles California area. Los Angeles has a rich apostolic history; Home to Azusa Street, Arroyo Seco, and the great revivals of the early 20th century. Many regard it as the birthplace of Modern Pentecost and Jesus Name Baptism. We believe it is time for another miraculous Holy Ghost downpour in this city!

AYC changed my life. My desire to reach out and witness to hungry souls was both ignited and deepened on this trip. This was an incredible experience and something I will carry with me the rest of my life.
