Wess Stafford

Wess Stafford could be a rising star among evangelical leaders, filling his days with speaking engagements and guest appearances on TV talk shows.

He could be driving a luxury car, living in a mansion and coasting on his achievements as CEO and president of Colorado Springs-based Compassion International.

He wants none of it.

His life is all about helping poverty-stricken kids in the world through the faith-based organization he’s run for 16 years.

“I think I got this job because I care more than anybody else,” Stafford says.
