Geordon and his wife, Marilyn, are Canadians who have served together on behalf of this mission in many different countries over the past three decades.
Geordon was raised in Colombia, South America. After completing high school in Bogotá and a BA in Criminology in Vancouver (SFU), Geordon worked as an officer with the Saanich Police for seven years. In 1995, Geordon & Marilyn moved overseas with Youth for Christ. In 2005, Geordon completed a Masters in Leadership and Training (RRU) with an emphasis on NGO governance.
As co-preneurs, Geordon and Marilyn pioneered Youth for Christ in Venezuela and served in Argentina, recruiting indigenous staff and board members and assisting in the growth of ministry to youth in these nations. Then as Americas Area Director they led a multi-national virtual team from eight different countries, serving 32 nations in the Americas with over 15,000 staff and volunteers. Through their ministry they have been able to mobilize indigenous leaders, particularly young people – engaging, empowering and equipping them – to bring hope to this generation.
