Jim tells of his relationship with Bob Broyles, on the Young Life Staff in Salzburg, Austria. In 1980, motivated by Bob’s burden for military kids, Jim and Bob, with the help of YFC’s Earl Schultz, organized Military Community Youth Ministry (MCYM) to reach the teenagers of American military personnel on bases around the world. It was a hybrid organization that was contracted with the U.S. military from money left-over from World War 2. For nearly 35 years Young Life and Youth for Christ have partnered together to make this ministry happen. Larry Russell was one of the first staff for YFC in MCYM and eventually became the European Field Director.
