Ben Snethen Support Team

History & Fundraising

In the spring of 2011, Youthfront offered me the Summer Staff position that I’d been wanting for years. I was finally going to be one of the Cabin Leader Supervisors at Youthfront Camp West. I’d landed my summer dream job. Fast forward a few months, and I was approaching our Camp Director to talk about the possibility of a full-time position with Youthfront.

In September of that year, I began raising support. Most of Youthfront’s staff do fund-raising as a way to help bridge financial gaps and ensure our non-profit can effectively do the work God calls us to do. I’ll be honest with you…this is by far the most difficult part of my job. Asking for money is uncomfortable. It was the thing that almost stopped me from joining Youthfront full-time back in 2011. However, I’m committed to the ministry Youthfront does, and I believe in the mission we’re carrying out – Bringing youth into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ.

What Am I Asking For?

Simply put, I’m asking if you’d be willing to join my financial support team. I raise funds for the organization. That money goes into a support account from which I draw my salary. There is some natural attrition involved in the support raising process. While I gain new supporters occasionally, I also lose some as well. As cost of living increases, I need my salary to increase correspondingly. To continue with this ministry at a healthy pace, I believe I need to raise an additional $500 of monthly support. There are three ways you can help:

1) Become one of my monthly supporters! You can do so online by filling out the form at the bottom of this page

2) Share this fundraising page on one or more of your social media platforms

3) Pray for me and for anyone considering joining my support team

If you cannot commit to a monthly donation but would still like to help me reach my goal with a one-time gift, there’s an option for you as well! You can visit the Youthfront Staff Support Page to designate a donation toward my support account.
