Dan Sommer

Youth Missions Director

Dan joined our team in 2021 after serving more than 2 decades as a Pastor of Student Ministries in the EFCA. Dan is passionate about seeing young people respond to Christ, follow Jesus with others, and invite others all around the world to know Jesus. Dan loves to introduce students to world missions. As students step out of their comfort zone, learn to depend on God outside their normal context, and experience God working in and through their lives it significantly strengthens their faith and helps lead them to the lifelong adventure of missional living.

Peter and Debra Bors

Peter and Debra are our National Youth Missions Directors, they train, coach, and mentor both mission and leadership team members as well as youth group participants during the summer and encourage them to take next steps in missions or ministry. Peter and Debra also oversee logistics, including housing, meals, and ministry sites, as well as developing ministry partnerships that provide effectiveness and sustainability. They are passionate about maintaining relationships in our current city sites and developing new sites within the U.S. As the parents of four adult daughters and with years of experience in both the Navy and youth pastoring, Peter and Debra enjoy working with the next generation because they see an opportunity to help mold young people and discuss Scripture with students, who always seem to ask so many great questions. They are adventurously expectant as they live full-time in their RV, which allows them the mobility to continue to build partnerships with churches, universities, and the next generation.
