Michael Yoder joined the Associated Ministries team as Executive Director in August 2015, bringing more than 30 years of experience as a nonprofit leader with a career that has been marked by innovation and communications excellence.
Mike shared: “I’m energized by the vital role that Associated Ministries has always played in catalyzing faith-based efforts to positively impact social needs in our community. I believe a new movement of interfaith service and cooperation is being birthed here in Pierce County, and AM and its partners can be the catalysts of that movement.”
As part of his three decades of work with international religious and humanitarian organizations, Mike has traveled to 30 countries and is a dedicated observer of news and trends affecting nonprofits and social justice issues. He earned a degree in Communications from California State University and lives in Puyallup with his wife, Debbie; his son and daughter are away from home as university students.
