Board of Directors

Seth Harkins 

John Stagliano

Seth became the board chairman in 2024, but he has been involved with AYM as a staff member, director and board member for fifteen years. The White Mountain Apache tribe and AYM will always be special to Seth and his wife Hallie who met because of AYM. His time as a director of AYM and his familiarity with the tribe make him an invaluable chairman of the AYM board. Seth, Hallie, and their three children will always have a strong connection with AYM. 

Dr. Billy Myers

Dr. Billy Myers practiced large animal veterinary medicine in northeast Georgia for 34 years. He and his wife, Lee, both fell in love with the White Mountain Apache people when they participated in a Christian Veterinary Mission (CVM) mission trip to the Reservation in 2006. Since that time, Billy has led and served on numerous CVM short term mission teams to the Apache Reservation, and through that work maintains long-term relationships with people on the Reservation and the Pinetop-Lakeside area. It was on those short-term mission trips that he met Ron Everingham and became involved with Apache Youth Ministry (AYM). Billy became a CVM Associate in 2015 and God uses him to encourage veterinary students and professionals in Eastern Europe and create Christian clubs in veterinary schools. He has been active in the missions committee of his home church, First Baptist Church in Monroe, Georgia since
retirement in 2013. He joined the AYM Board in January 2022.

Bryon Brock 

Bryon is the UIM aviation director. He cares deeply about the organization and mission of AYM. He was connected with AYM through three of his children. Josh and Danielle his older children started serving with AYM in 2016 and their brother Caleb came a couple years later and still continues to serve AYM. As the director of a UIM he has spent a lot of time working with Native pastors in Mexico and managing the logistics of a complex ministry. We are thankful for how Bryon will continue his family's legacy of reaching Apache Youth for Christ.
