Leadership is a big deal to Danny Ferguson and something that he desires to constantly grow in. “I always had interest in leadership and have held leadership positions in several non–profit organizations”, says the man who recently completed a graduate leadership certificate through Arrow Leadership Program.
For Danny, leadership encompasses who he is and the position that he plays in Youth Unlimited. “In my role, I provide leadership and supervision to the staff team in Langley as well as work to keep the programs well funded.” Along with this, his role involves directing Creative Life in Langley, a program which utilizes art to connect with the community, using creativity to express people and their beliefs.
Always learning, if this Area Director has time off, you can find him reading a book to better himself as a leader, husband, father and youth leader. And of course, the occasional comic read- which always makes him better at Geek Trivia.
When asked what quote connects with his passion at Youth Unlimited, Danny shared Shane Claiborne’s words from ‘The Irresistible Revolution’. “I think what our world is desperately in need of is lovers, people who are building deep, genuine relationships with fellow strugglers along the way, and who actually know the faces of the people behind these issues they are concerned about.”
Together we can transform the world our youth live in—but we can’t do it without you.Take Action
