Greg Perry, founder of global ministry for orphans, steps down


Greg Perry, who launched YouthReach International in 1993, has stepped down as a member of the ministry’s staff.
The ministry, formerly known as World Wide Youth Camps, “provides positive adult relationships for orphans and at-risk children through mentoring opportunities with local Ukrainian and Russian … mentors,” according to its website, www.youthreach.org.
Perry will continue to serve on YouthReach’s board.
“Greg has worked to bring the hope of Jesus Christ to thousands of children worldwide,” said David Hennessey, YouthReach’s executive director. “Hundreds have followed his lead by going to the mission field and serving the forgotten in their own countries.”
Under Perry’s direction, YouthReach sent more than 100 short-term teams to 15 countries. The ministry’s mentoring and orphanage outreach programs serve more than 600 Russian and Ukrainian orphans.
