Meet our Board

  • Mike Robertson
    CIYFC Board Chair
    Principal, Robertson and Associates

    Being on the board, I get to play a small part of God's greater plan for us all to have a richer life.

  • Tim Norton
    Executive Vice President, Colliers International

    I love that this organization values the individuality of kids and seeks to build authentic relationships with them. It is through these genuine, loving relationships that God reveals himself to these kids. It is humbling to be part of this work.

  • Lisa Heindricks
    I was originally asked to be on the steering committee for Teen Parents, but now serve and support in a variety of ways. I am honored to serve with CIYFC and look forward to seeing where Christ leads us. 

  • Rev. Lisa D. Holland 
    Associate Minister at Light of the World Christian Church
    I was introduced to Central Indiana Youth for Christ through volunteering with Parent Life. It is amazing to see youth from various backgrounds embrace Christ, grow into the leaders they are created to be, and be willing to share their faith with others. Being a member of the Board affords the opportunity to continue to do transformational ministry for our youth and the broader community. It is also an opportunity to encourage and empower future generations of young people to seek and develop a relationship with Jesus and to realize their full potential.

  • Jack Sandlin
    President, Jack Sandlin & Associates

    I have personally witnessed how the ministry of CIYFC has made a difference in our community.  I serve on the Board to help in all ways possible to expand and grow God’s ministry at CIYFC, reaching even more youths with the good news of Jesus Christ.

  • Greg Turnbull
    Vice President, N.A. Williams Company

    God is doing some incredible things in Indianapolis in the lives of middle school and high school students and I love being a part of it.  Campus Life and YFC are meeting students right where they are and introducing them to the hope that Jesus offers.

  • Rex Miller
    CPA, CGMA - Partner
    Donovan CPAs

    I started volunteering with Campus Life when my youngest son entered middle school and became his small group leader throughout his middle school years.  By serving on the board, I see the full reach that is Central Indiana YFC. Christ is using CIYFC to mentor, support, and encourage young people in and around Indianapolis… that is exciting!  

  • Nathan Peterman
    Vice President, Hylant                         
    At the age of 16, my life’s trajectory was eternally impacted by two YFC staff who served at Carroll High School.  As my kids reach the stage of life when they can have the same experience, my passion for the organization ignited and I determined to make sure both my kids and every kid have the same opportunity.

  • Brent Benge
    CEO of KennMar Companies

    I’m privileged and honored to serve on the CIYFC’s Board. CIYFC empowers young people by providing a tremendous amount of hope and support in the following ways: praying together, building loving relationships, and embarking on local ministry programs. Matthew 18:10 - “See that you do not despise one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels always see the face of my Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 19:14 - But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of heaven."

  • Todd Bieberich
    Financial Advisor with AIG Retirement Services 
    I started attending Campus Life in Middle School and continued all throughout High School. It had such a positive and meaningful impact in my life that I wanted all students to share the same experience. After getting Campus Life up and running in my kids' school district, I started volunteering. I am excited to continue to support such a great organization by being on the board.
