Harold Young


Harold Young has been a part of the Upper Room Mission one way or another since 1988.

Harold is a retired pastor whose first post in the North Okanagan was at the Hope Chapel in Lumby. Since then, he’s spoken at dozens of churches in the valley as well as at the Mission’s chapel.

Through his other career as a driver—once for taxis and now for school buses—he’s had the opportunity to spend face time with Mission guests, driving people to detox centres, appointments for addictions counselling, even visiting principals of school children who’ve gotten into trouble. Whatever the circumstance, Harold is devoted to helping people turn their lives around.

This is Harold’s third term as a Mission board member. Over the years he’s served as Vice Chair and Treasurer. He is currently our Secretary.
