About the Author


Raised on a dairy farm in the Amish and Mennonite community of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, Wes Yoder moved to Nashville in 1973 to work in the music business.  He was instrumental during the Jesus Movement in the formation of the Contemporary Christian Music genre, and launched careers of many well-known artists.  In 1984, he formed the Christian based speakers bureau to assist thinkers and writers dedicated to a biblical world-view.  During this time, he became a founding member of Christ Presbyterian Academy, a thriving K-12 school where he served on the board for fifteen years.

In 1997, he launched Ambassador Literary Agency as a division of his company, which led to national media representation of many high-profile clients involved in national and international news stories. His projects have included  representation of the # 1 New York Times best-sellers, Bonhoeffer, The Shack, The Purpose Driven Life (media) and Mistaken Identity. Wes has been interviewed on The TODAY Show, NBC Nightly News, ABC’s Prime Time, Dateline NBC, CNN Headline News and others. He has been quoted by TIME Magazine, The New York Times, People Magazine, the Associated Press, Agence-France Presse and others.

Wes’ first book, Bond of Brothers: Connecting With Other Men Beyond Work, Weather and Sports (Zondervan), seeks to move men from silent and broken pasts to the company of men where conversation, spiritual friendship and a community of  life filled with friends and brothers define and complete God’s purposes for them.

Wes and his wife, Linda, have two children and three grandchildren.
