Growing up as a son of Michael Youssef can carry a great deal of weight. Early on in life, I was sure of one thing, I was never going to be in church ministry as my vocation. God has a sense of humor though and after working briefly in politics, I realized people had a great need and that need was Jesus. The Lord impressed on my heart a great desire to articulate and proclaim the gospel and so I enrolled at Reformed Theological Seminary. I met my wife Lindsey while working at Leading The Way and studying at RTS part-time. In 2015 we married, I graduated from seminary and we moved to Sydney Australia. For 3 years we learned how to minister to people. It was there that I had a growing passion to see the church united across ages, stages, socio-economic background, race, and culture. It is my desire that Apostles would be a church that stands out against the culture in these ways.
