On Wednesday, March 8, Pastor Wayne Younger will preach during Lenten vespers at 7:00 p.m.

As Executive Director of Open Hand Ministries, Wayne Younger brings more than twenty-five years of nonprofit service experience in the Pittsburgh region to his work with our mission partner — including proficiency in organizational management, public speaking, strategic planning, fundraising, and board development. Wayne’s entrepreneurial and executive leadership is marked by a focused mission to advocate for and improve the lives of economically marginalized persons. He does all of this with a pastor’s heart, as a co-founding pastor of Cityview Church in East Allegheny.

A native of Pittsburgh, Wayne is a graduate of Langley High School and Asbury University in Wilmore, Kentucky. Previously, he has led and served in mentoring programs and churches, and he was program coordinator at Pittsburgh Urban Leadership Service Experience (PULSE). Most recently, he served as the Executive Director of the Pittsburgh Project.

We give thanks that Pastor Younger will proclaim God’s Word among us during this Lenten season. Please join us in welcoming him to Shadyside’s pulpit.
