Bryan serves as the Director of Development for Youth for Christ International, an integral role in Youth for Christ’s strategic focus of reaching all the young people of the world.
Working together with the local church and other like-minded partners Youth for Christ is raising up lifelong followers of Jesus who lead by their godliness in lifestyle, devotion to the Word of God and prayer, passion for sharing the love of Christ and commitment to social involvement.
As the Director of Development, Bryan leads a team that is helping YFC staff, nations, and programs raise up funds to enable them do what God has called them to do–reaching young people everywhere and raising up life-long followers of Jesus; and doing it in a way that brings glory to God and great joy and satisfaction to YFC’s many financial partners around the world.
Bryan began ministry with Youth for Christ in 1983 and has served in Minnesota, Germany, and as International Liaison Director for YFC’s Europe, Middle East & North Africa Area. He began his role as Director of Development in 2015. Bryan and his wife Jill have three children, Mykala, Cody & Elijah.
“I can think of nothing greater than reaching young people with the life-changing message of Jesus,” Bryan said. “It is a great adventure and privilege to serve God through Youth for Christ. The challenges are tremendous, but so are the opportunities! I love it when others get involved, too, and experience the great joy of being part of what God is doing around the world.”
