Yusuph provides leadership and oversight to all Twelve21 Global’s ministry endeavors. He desires to give his life for the cause of Christ. He hopes to spark joy in every encounter, showing each person God loves them more than they can grasp. When he takes a break from casting vision for the ministry, Yusuph studies online (the College at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary), plays with his two young sons, or watches “Survivor” with his wife Katie, whom he married in 2014. Yusuph comes from a Tanzanian “meat-eating” tribe. Where he comes from, “it’s not right to just eat leaves (salad) and go to bed”.

Emma oversees our Education and Sponsorship Program in the U.S. and also leads mission trips to Tanzania. In addition, Emma works toward completing her Masters of Intercultural Studies from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.
