New Addition to the Team


Hello Family,

For over 20 years, UYWI has been identifying and developing next gen urban leaders to reach urban youth in the hardest parts of our cities and to lead the Church into the future. The future is now and the world is young, urban and multiethnic. Never has the need for bold visionary urban leadership been greater than it is.

To help us lead in this new reality, and to share in our mission: to power the urban youth worker so that urban youth have the leaders and role models they need to live transformed lives by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, we would like to gratefully announce the addition of D.A. Horton to the UYWI leadership team as Chief Evangelist!

D.A. is a longtime friend of UYWI since his youth ministry and then church planting days in Kansas City. We so appreciate D.A.’s heart for shaping urban leaders, his passion for the Gospel as well as his deep commitment to solidly teaching God’s Word. He is the featured speaker in UYWI’s Discipleship Toolkit (DKIT.UYWI.ORG) and is quickly becoming the face of the organization to the next generation through this most relevant urban discipleship resource!

Please join me in welcoming D.A. to our team and be on the lookout for his featured resources on our mobile app.

Larry Acosta
