YECA Welcomes New National Organizer and Spokesperson

Young Evangelicals for Climate Action (YECA) welcomes Tori Goebel as the organization’s incoming National Organizer and Spokesperson. Tori has spent the last 4 years as Communications Director for YECA and the Evangelical Environmental Network, YECA’s partner ministry. During this time, she also served on YECA’s national steering committee. Tori brings a wealth of experience in political organizing and policy advocacy to the role, as well as professional communications and marketing skills.

“We are at a pivotal moment as we face the climate crisis,” says Tori. “Communities are already being hurt in a myriad of ways, and many Christians within the U.S. have ignored this reality for far too long. I believe we have a unique role to play in addressing environmental injustice, and YECA has been on the cutting edge of educating, empowering, and mobilizing young Christians to take action at all levels. I am excited for the future of YECA, and humbled by the opportunity to lead in this way.”

YECA’s previous National Organizer and Spokesperson, Rev. Kyle Meyaard-Schaap, has been named Vice President of the Evangelical Environmental Network. Kyle served in the role of National Organizer and Spokesperson for YECA from August 2016-January 2021.

“I am prouder than I can say of what YECA has accomplished these last 4 and a half years,” says Kyle, “and Tori is the perfect leader to guide YECA toward even greater impact. Having had the privilege of working alongside Tori for the past 4 years, I can say with certainty that she has the vision, skill, and passion to help YECA flourish and grow for years to come.”
