Lauren Domski    Recruiting Associate 

Lauren was made to go on her first YouthWorks mission trip as a teenager in 2008. But God used that week to draw her closer and push her into a deep love for meaningful missions. After a summer on staff in Chicago in 2014, Lauren joined the recruiting team. Outside of work, you will find her longboarding along any smooth pavement in sight, eating beef jerky or searching City Pages for upcoming Twin Cities concerts.

Phil Eidum    Senior Recruiting Associate

After three summers on YouthWorks summer staff, Phil joined the Recruiting Team in 2012. He enjoys how his role allows him to place summer staff and use Excel. Phil spent his first two summers serving in the Western Region (Lake Traverse, Rosebud, Rapid City, Northern Cheyenne) and in 2013 he served as an area director in the Eastern Region (Lincoln, Logan, and Mingo Counties). Outside of work, Phil enjoys playing basketball, leading a youth group, investing too much passion into consistently under-performing Minnesota sports teams, and playing tennis or Frisbee golf with his wife Alexis.

Billy McKee    Recruiting Associate

Born and raised in Delaware, Billy has been working on summer staff for YouthWorks since 2012. His favorite part about being on the recruiting team is being able to travel to new places and meet amazing new staff. And he’s excited to travel to some familiar places too – namely Florida.

Stephanie Hayes    Recruiting Associate

Stephanie has spent eight summers on staff with YouthWorks, and although she has a Big City heart, she’s loved spending summers in the small towns of the Western Region. Stephanie moved from Chicago to South Minneapolis to begin working in the YouthWorks office in 2008, where she especially loves interviewing potential summer staff. When she’s not at the office or hanging out with the coolest youth group in the Twin Cities, she can be found juggling multiple books or at movie theaters catching all of the nominated films during Oscar season.

Katie Beekman   Recruiting Associate

Katie joined the YouthWorks team in January of 2016 and has loved having Summer Staff and Recruiting roles ever since. Her favorite part of her job is interviewing candidates and hearing about their hearts for the Lord and serving Him. Being a Minnesota girl through and through, the Vikings break Katie’s heart every year. Outside of work, you can usually find her knitting, playing her ukulele, catching up on her Netflix cue, or searching for the perfect cup of coffee.
