Dr. Al Metsker, the founder of Kansas City Youth For Christ, had a dream of establishing ministries all over the United States with the purpose of reaching teens with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Midland was a part of that dream. Originally established with a Youth Rally in Hiawatha, KS held on October 18th, 1977, Midland operated as an associate ministry of KCYFC until July of 1989. KCYFC desired to concentrate on the metropolitan Kansas City area and requested that ministries outside Kansas City, become independent of KCYFC.
On July 1, 1989, we officially became Midland Ministries. Mike Mosiman served as the Executive Director and CEO til his death in 2013. Jon Henderson has served as the Executive Director and CEO since that time.
