Our Year-Round Team!
Executive Director- Mark Wurtz
Mark has been the executive director since 2001, but his first time as summer staff was over 25 years ago! He is great at his job because of his a desire to see the camp grow and impact many for the Kingdom of God and he makes this vision contagious. Mark enjoys the many different tasks his job entails, both in and out of the office, and he has the skills to hit those tasks out of the park! Mark is inspired by the Bible, the Holy Spirit, his family, and the beautiful Candace Wurtz, who is his wife and his hero. When he has spare time he enjoys reading, playing squash, vacations with his family, and, of course, cheering on the Saskatchewan Roughriders!

Associate Director - Holly Epp
Holly joined the year-round staff at YFBC in the spring of 2014 after volunteering here and there during the few summers before. This place felt like 'home' and Holly knew she wanted to serve the Lord here full time, excited for the variety of work, ministry, and seasons that camp-life has to offer. Although she can recite the alphabet backwards this skill is not needed for her roles at the camp. Traveling, baking, and drinking coffee are all favorites for Holly, each one of these things made better when paired with quality family or friend time.
To touch base with Holly please email - email@example.com or phone - 1 855-855-9322 ext 1
Site Manager - Jacob Wielinga
Jacob dug up his Ontario roots in June 2016 and made the brave move over to Saskatchewan to take on the role of YFBC's site manager. Throughout his adult life, Jacob has been gathering skills and experiences from carpentry to theology to fatherhood, to name a few. These have all come together to form a great mosaic of abilities and passion for the many tasks he works on at YFBC taking care of the yard, buildings, and animals, as well as being active in the summer camp program and corn maze season. Jacob's passion to serve in this ministry is also shared by his wife, Angela, and their five daughters.
If you have any questions or comments for Jacob just email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 1-855-855-9322 ext 2
Office Administrator - Bev Neudorf
Bev's background as an account clerk, and even more important, a full time mom, equipped her for her position as the beloved office administrator here at YFBC. She has been a dedicated staff member for over two years because she loves the Christ-centered environment. We know Bev is one amazing lady because the apple doesn't fall from the tree! Bev describes her mom as her hero, an amazing woman, who could go from cooking a meal for her family to sewing their clothes, then out to the barn to deliver a calf and finish the day by fixing a fence. Bev hasn't needed to fix one of our fences yet but it's nice to know your camp registrations are organized by someone who feels so at home on the farm.
Getting in contact with Bev can happen by email - email@example.com or phone - 1 855-855-9322 ext 4
Horsemanship Director - Cheralyne Gibson
The Youth Farm Bible Camp has been a part of Cheralyne's story for many years. Starting out as a camper, then volunteering as a WIT, and joining the summer staff as wrangler and riding lesson instructor. In June of 2017 Cheralyne and her husband, Aaron, moved to YFBC as she joined us full-time to look after the horses, develop our horsemanship programs, and teach lessons in both Western and English disciplines. Her passion is to see lives impacted by horses and transformed by Jesus. At YFBC these two elements come together and she could see the Lord calling her here to use her gifts and talents.
To reach Cheralyne please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call her at 1-855-855-9322 ext 6
But as for me and my household, we will serve the Lord. -Joshua 24:15
