Youth Dynamics’ founder, Paul Evans, (Nov. 13, 1946 – Aug. 30, 2019), has passed away. Paul and Connie, his wife of over 50 years, founded Youth Dynamics in 1970. He served as the President from 1970 until 2000.
Youth Dynamics started from two passions that burned deep in Paul’s soul. One, his love for Jesus Christ, and two, the immense need he saw for a ministry to rural teens. Paul and Connie sensed God was leading them into full-time Great Commission work with young people in Anacortes, WA, so they asked God to provide $200 to begin this new work. Three days later a check for $200 arrived. God answered through a person who mailed that check who knew nothing of their prayer or desire to start a youth ministry.
Little did Paul realize that this was just the beginning of a ministry that would expand throughout the Northwest.
