Jeanne Mayo (2019 Inductee)
Acclaimed by Ministries Today as “America’s Number One Youth Pastor,” Jeanne Mayo has thrown her heart and passion into youth and young adult ministry for over four decades. Her ministry DNA is reflected in her life mission statement: “The motivation and mentorship of Kamikaze Christianity into practicing and potential Kingdom champions.” She has taken 5 different youth ministries from handfuls to hundreds; and even today, she is still actively in the trenches and on staff at Victory Church, a thriving church of over 16,000. She also criss-crosses the globe as a public speaker to teenagers, college students, young adults, as well as to their leaders.
In recent years, Jeanne founded Youth Leader’s Coach, a non-profit organization that seeks “to instruct, equip, inspire and encourage the youth pastors and youth leaders of this generation.” Through this venue, she has begun a coaching/mentoring arm called “The Cadre.” Over 1,000 of the nation’s premiere youth and young adult leaders and ministries have now experienced this intensive year of personal mentoring and coaching with Jeanne.
