Steve and Dyan Larmey

Steve and Dyan have each been on Young Life staff for over 20 years serving in various roles. Steve served as Regional Director of Indiana/Kentucky and is currently Senior Vice President for Young Life Africa/Middle East. Dyan served as an Area Director for 10 years before moving into training and development roles. She currently serves as African Staff Development Director, Divisional YoungLives Director and she leads women in leadership programs for Africa/Middle East.  She is the founder of Karama, Inc., a nonprofit social enterprise which provides a marketplace to artisans in Africa and donates proceeds to send kids to Young Life camps in African countries.

The Larmeys have served the mission in Africa since 2002 when YL was operating in a couple of high schools in only one African city. Today – 26 countries, almost 8,000 volunteer leaders and almost 225 national staff later – YL Africa/Middle East is the fastest growing frontier of YL ministry. This year, over 1,100,000 kids have been reached for Christ and 94,000 kids and leaders attended a YL camp in Africa/Middle East.

Beyond recruiting and coaching the team of Africa and Middle East leaders who oversee this work, Steve and Dyan are active in their local church, volunteer with WyldLife and sit on the Board of Trustees for Haven of Peace Academy.  They have four children.
