Mission Statement

Morning Glory Ministries International Inc. founded in 2001 is a faith-based organization founded on Christian principles. It has been a lifetime aspiration of Rev. Sylvia Medley to help youth to develop their talents and dreams. With the encouragement of and inspiration of her husband, Rev. Russell E. Medley, Jr. and the Morning Glory Board of Directors,this benevolent work has begun. Rev. Medley's vision for the ministry is two-fold. 1. Since the untimely death of her brother, William David "Boo" Dilworth, in a car accident at the age of 17, it has been the desire of Rev. Sylvia Medley to help youth with talent to flourish and blossom as the Morning Glory flowering vine spreading and climbing over everything that they touch. 2. While the ministry is helping youth, it will also be providing much needed jobs for youth as well as adults of the community. The Board of Directors have caught the vision of Rev. Medley and strive with the help of the community to inspire young people to develop their talents and dreams, whether it be music, drama, sports, or their spiritual gifts. It is the vision of the Founders, Board of Directors, Advisory Board and Honorary Board of MGMII to establish the Morning Glory Ministries Dream Builder Center to develop the talents of youth that will house the administrative office and include an art gallery, a sound studio, theater, and well as other studios to develop and showcase the talents and dreams of young people dreaming the possible dream.
