David Yerry

Senior Director, Major Gifts

David Yerry works alongside the President and Chief Executive Officer to cultivate relationships with generous individuals and foundations whose passions align with Prison Fellowship International’s work.

The transformation that occurs when a prisoner’s life-trajectory is positively altered drives David to engage others in financially resourcing the frontlines of this exciting ministry. He enjoys assisting people in stewarding their resources to achieve life-transforming outcomes. 

David’s career includes missionary work in Europe, local church leadership and 20 years of service with the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association in various roles, including Vice President of Administration and Donor Relations. 

David holds degrees in Theology and Business Administration and has served as Board Chairman for an international non-profit. He lives by the Blue Ridge Mountains in western North Carolina with his wife, Wendi. They have three married sons and five grandchildren and enjoy hiking, water activities, and hosting family and friends at their cabin home.
