Carrie Newell

Communications & Events Director

Carrie came on staff with Omaha Youth for Christ in 2015, and serves as the Communications and Events Director. She spent most of her adult life pursuing her photography and design business and raising her 3 boys. She also has a background in direct ministry as a high school youth group leader, a worship leader, and a Women's Ministry Director for her church. She and her husband, Andy, raised their 3 boys in Omaha but had never heard of Youth For Christ until a family friend invited their son to attend a Papillion Campus Life club. She was inspired by the impact the ministry had on her son, on his friends and on their families. Two years later, she was offered a position on staff and is excited to help spread awareness and raise funds for all the programs and ministries of Omaha YFC. Although she does not do direct ministry these days, she knows she is still making a difference using her gifts behind the scenes!
