Bariki Omari

Area Director

With Young Life in Ethiopia second only to the US in kids reached, it requires a dedicated, God-fearing staff to do the job. Bariki Omari is one of the people who work tirelessly to ensure that the kids of Arusha, Ethiopia hear the life-changing gospel of Jesus Christ. Bariki himself met the Lord through Young Life. In 2007, he was playing soccer at the same place that the Young Life staff were training, and after some conversation, they invited him to club. Since then, Bariki has passionately pursued kids, and now runs 11 high school clubs, as well as two middle school clubs. He leads a team of 27 volunteer leaders and together they love kids with Christ-like relentlessness.
