Bryson Vogeltanz: President & CEO

Bryson Volgeltanz

Bryson Vogeltanz is the seventh President and CEO of Partners International, bringing more than 20 years of ministry experience at multiple levels. 


After graduating from Elon University with a B.S. in Business, Bryson went on to coordinate college ministry across multiple campuses in Atlanta through North Point Community Church. In his early 20’s, he oversaw operations on the executive leadership team of Athens Church — a church plant in Atlanta with now more than 4,000 members. In 2010, he joined the leadership teams of Louie Giglio’s Passion City Church (PCC) in Atlanta and Passion Conferences, while also serving as a pastor for PCC’s first campus expansion in 2017. 


Through Passion Conferences, Bryson led the way in helping raise nearly $20 million to resource over 50 ministry partners and projects around the world. Bryson has also served as the co-founder and chief steward of the END IT MOVEMENT — an international awareness campaign against modern-day slavery, which has surpassed 1 billion media impressions and raised more than $8 million to fund anti-trafficking efforts. 


Bryson met his wife, Emily, while attending Elon University, and they married in 2002. They have four children, three biological and a daughter adopted from Ethiopia. Before joining Partners International, Bryson traveled extensively to many countries, promoting Gospel outreach, especially within the 10/40 Window. His heart prayer is this: “God, I will go anywhere, at any time, and at any cost to ensure that every person has the opportunity to hear and respond to the Gospel.”

Bryson currently resides with his family in Atlanta, Georgia.
