Dennis Okurboth* – Uganda
Dennis is an area director in Northern Uganda. As a teen, he allowed partying and drinking to define his life. When Dennis learned about Young Life, he was working as a police officer. In 2014, a now regional director named Stella invited police officers in her town to attend a Young Life camp. During the week, when Dennis heard the message from the speaker, he started to evaluate his life. The words spoken touched his heart, and he knew something had to change. Later, Dennis ultimately left the police force in order to pursue lost teenagers for Christ. Dennis continues to be a committed leader and man of God who is passionate about showing Christ’s love to his family and friends.
