YouthReach International ministers to children in Eastern Europe by establishing local mentoring communities which equip orphans and at-risk youth for success in life through spiritual development, positive role models and practical life skills.
Rob Browne is the Executive Director of YouthReach International. Rob has a Master's Degree in Cross-Cultural Missions from Abilene Christian University and a Bachelor of Science Degree in Business Communication from Lipscomb University. He has used this combination, along with his dynamic personality and a passion for the people of Russia, to serve for a total of 19 years as a missionary either living or working in Siberia.
Rob and his wife, Traci, were raised at Campus Church, serving in and on various mission and ministry teams. Both are graduates of Greater Atlanta Christian School where they knew each other but, according to Rob, "God was protecting Traci from me until he could get some things worked out."
As Executive Director, Rob oversees the stateside elements of the ministry including operations, fundraising, promotion, partner network, and staff/board development. Rob helps expand the YouthReach International partner network in Russia and select new target cities and countries.
The Brownes live in Monroe, GA, with their children Benjamin, Nate, Aidan, and Anna.
