Yusuf was born in London, England, but spent most of his childhood in the Houston area. He is proudly Nigerian and grew up in a Muslim household. He came to faith in Christ in high school after a powerful encounter with Jesus. Yusuf attended Texas State University in San Marcos and graduated with a degree in Electrical Engineering. During his time at Texas State, he met his amazing wife, Ashley, at a leadership retreat for their college ministry. Shortly after graduating college in 2017, Yusuf and Ashley married and moved to Dallas where Yusuf would work as an electrical engineer for Texas Instruments...having no clue that three years later he would feel called to full-time ministry.
Yusuf loves authentic conversations about life and Jesus. He is passionate about reaching young adults for Christ, teaching them how to walk out their faith in whatever setting God has placed them in. When he’s not working you can probably catch him enjoying the company of good friends or out exploring good restaurants and cozy coffee shops with his wife.
