Wondemenh Baye – Ethiopia

Regional Director

Wonde Baye is a regional director in Ethiopia. He loves serving God and serving kids in the ministry of Young Life. He is one of the faithful Young Life staff members who works in the large country of Ethiopia, which is only second to the US in number of kids reached. Wonde grew up in a Christian family but it wasn’t until late in high school that he decided to follow Jesus. After meeting Regional Director Moges Berassa in 2002, Wonde visited a Young Life club and instantly loved it. He then started volunteering in the same club, and eventually came on staff for Young Life soon after. He now works in developing a new area of Addis Ababa, and oversees a total of six clubs in heavy Muslim populations. Wonde loves that Young Life values the relational aspect of ministry because he knows that it takes that personal connection to really introduce kids to their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Those relationships have led to over 400 kids’ involvement in Young Life, including many Muslim kids who have come to know Jesus in a new way.
