We are happy to inform you about the outcome of the recruitment process for the new National Director of Youth for Christ in France. After a search process lasting three months, on January 23 the Board appointed Patrick Nussbaumer the new National Director.patrickfrance

Patrick Nussbaumer, current Chairman of Youth for Christ in France, will assume the role of National Director in September 2016.

Patrick has been Chairman of the Board since 2008 and has been active in Youth for Christ events for many years. One of the Youth for Christ events that happens yearly that he tries not to miss is Plagestation, where he can put his juggling skills to good use drawing in and keeping the attention of crowds of beachgoers.

After the Board voted, Patrick had this to say, “I welcome this prospect of serving in a new way through Youth for Christ in France as the National Director. My aim is to help staff and volunteers enable each young person to live out the Gospel.” Patrick is the successor of Sam Weiler; Youth for Christ in France has grown a lot under his leadership.
