Vanderbloemen Retained by Youth For Christ for President/CEO Search


Youth For Christ

ENGLEWOOD, Colorado – Youth For Christ has retained Vanderbloemen to assist them in their search for a new President/CEO. 

Youth for Christ, located outside of Denver in Englewood, Colorado, has been a pillar of missional ministry since 1944, when Rev. Billy Graham served as YFC’s first full-time staff member.

Dan Wolgemuth assumed the position of President/CEO of Youth For Christ USA on April 1, 2005. Youth For Christ has continued to be both a rural and urban ministry on mission, and always about the message of Jesus. 

Vanderbloemen, serving clients with a greater purpose, including churches, schools, nonprofits, family offices, and values-based businesses, loves the whole church and is honored to partner with Youth For Christ on this vital and important hire. 

“We are honored that Youth For Christ, a place that has had such a deep and historic impact on the Kingdom, would ask us to help guide them to the next leader God is raising up,” said William Vanderbloemen, Vanderbloemen founder and CEO. “We’re thrilled for the new chapter of ministry God is writing for YFC.”

Throughout YFC's history, there has been an unwavering commitment to youth evangelism and biblical Christianity.

One of YFC’s cornerstone slogans for over the last seven decades has been "Geared to the Times, Anchored to the Rock.” YFC strives to both demonstrate and communicate this message of hope, grace, and love in a variety of different cultural settings, and always pursuing teens in personal relationships. Your prayers and financial support continue to help change the lives of young people… one at a time. YFC refers to this pursuit as a 3Story® lifestyle and offers resources and training opportunities to take a “deeper dive” in this way of life.

Every day at thousands of community centers, high schools, middle schools, juvenile institutions, coffee shops, and local hangouts, YFC staff and volunteers meet with young people who need Jesus. Their focus as a movement is on multiplying fruitful and sustainable ministry sites across the nation and around the world.

“Youth For Christ has an incredible history and a rich heritage. Their profound Kingdom impact has reached around the globe, as well as into my own family. It is an honor to work with such an amazing organization,” said Executive Search Consultant Brian Jensen. “With each new organization I work with, I always reiterate the importance of remembering that the sovereign Lord already knows exactly who He is calling into the position, and He has already begun a good work in their heart and mind in preparation. It is our job to do the diligent work of discernment as we identify who that person is. We are very excited to partner in this work with Youth For Christ as we figure out who the Lord is calling to be their next President/CEO.”
