Kaleb & Ellerie Saucer
Kaleb and Ellerie Saucer - We have been involved in youth ministry - specifically campus ministry for 11 years. Between the two of us, we have been on a total of 8 AYC trips! Needless to say, we love missions and we love AYC. Currently we live in St Louis, MO, serving as the Campus Ministry International Director and working in the UPCI World Headquarters for the Division of Publications. We recently had our first kid, Easton, and while we will certainly miss him, we are looking forward to spending time with all of you!

I have met so many people through AYC and my personal network spans globally because of it. But its not just ANY people that I have met. Its the servants. The ones who give up so much to take the gospel to every nation, and the ones who skimped and saved to experience one week giving of themselves to others. Those who have gone for a few months, to those who live on the mission field. Those overseas and those on home soil. The ones who face down loneliness, discouragement, and isolation to do what God has called them to do. I’m proud to know the servants. I have learned so much about the servants heart in the years of going on AYC trips. Every trip gives me more insight on how I can serve, both in my church and my community. I wouldn’t trade the experiences I’ve had, the places and things I’ve seen, the lessons I’ve learned, and the people I’ve met for anything offered.
