The Wellspring Foundation is excited to welcome
Andy Harrington as its Chief Executive Officer
Andy has already had quite the first two weeks, including successfully completing a 220 km bike ride in our annual Lake2Lake Ride for Rwanda.
In his new role, Andy will work closely with the Wellspring Board, founders Richard Taylor and Jeffery Komant, and the entire Wellspring team to provide critical leadership for organizational growth as Wellspring envisions the future and seeks to expand its impact in Rwanda and beyond.
Andy Harrington is one of the most respected Christian leaders in Canada. He has a successful track record in organizational growth, strategy and planning, youth ministry, and international development. Since moving to Canada from the UK in 1999, Andy (with strong support from his wonderful wife Helen) has helped lead a dynamic team of 65+ staff and over 300 volunteers at Greater Vancouver Youth for Christ (Youth Unlimited).

Andy fits with Wellspring's values and culture and passionately believes in our calling and potential. For Wellspring's founders and board, it has become increasingly clear that we will benefit from working together as we enter the next stage of organizational growth. We are 100% behind this hire and are committed to working closely together with Andy to grow Wellspring.
We would like to thank the Board of Greater Vancouver Youth for Christ (Youth Unlimited) for their support for Andy and The Wellspring Foundation in this transition process. They have set an incredible example and we pray that God will bless their ministry moving forward.
