Seneatha Clayton

Seneatha Clayton fell in love with missions the summer after high school on her first trip to Central America. When asked by the UPCI Youth Ministries to serve in the AYC ministry, Seneatha saw this as an opportunity of a lifetime. The chance to serve with youth across North America on the mission field was a dream come true! Seneatha graduated from Missouri State University with her bachelor of science degree in accounting and plans to finish her master’s degree in the future. Along with her love for numbers, she enjoys volunteering, event planning, and all types of travel. She has served on different leadership teams in administration, Bible Quizzing, and other areas revolving around youth ministry. As a young person, her life was impacted by youth ministry and the people involved, so she takes every opportunity to pour back into the youth of today

I have met so many people through AYC and my personal network spans globally because of it. But its not just ANY people that I have met. Its the servants. The ones who give up so much to take the gospel to every nation, and the ones who skimped and saved to experience one week giving of themselves to others. Those who have gone for a few months, to those who live on the mission field. Those overseas and those on home soil. The ones who face down loneliness, discouragement, and isolation to do what God has called them to do. I’m proud to know the servants. I have learned so much about the servants heart in the years of going on AYC trips. Every trip gives me more insight on how I can serve, both in my church and my community. I wouldn’t trade the experiences I’ve had, the places and things I’ve seen, the lessons I’ve learned, and the people I’ve met for anything offered.
