This week’s chat features an old friend of host Matt Fulks, Rob Browne. Although most of these episodes feature someone with Kansas City ties, we’re breaking that this week. Rob is from Atlanta and lives there now, but there’s no doubt that you’ll be entertained, enlightened and encouraged after listening to this conversation.
Rob played basketball at Lipscomb University under Hall of Fame coach Don Meyer before embarking on a career focused on serving others. Not long after graduating from Lipscomb, Rob became a missionary in Russia, but not just any part of Russia…Siberia to be exact. He eventually became the Director of Russian Operations for YouthReach International, and nearly 10 years ago — in December of 2011 — he became the President and CEO of YouthReach International, which establishes local mentoring communities to serve vulnerable youth. Their locations include Ukraine, Zambia and Beirut.
Rob and Matt discuss the leadership lessons of Don Meyer, tell a story about how Rob had a chance to make the Bisons better once, and how those leadership lessons have carried with Rob as a missionary and nonprofit CEO.
