Wes Yoder moved to Nashville in 1973 from the Amish and Mennonite community of Lancaster, Pennsylvania, to work in the music business. He was a pioneer in the formation of Contemporary Christian Music, and launched the careers of many well-known artists. He also created the first faith-based speakers bureau to assist speakers and authors.
In 1997, he launched Ambassador Literary Agency as a division of his company, which led to national media representation of many high-profile clients involved in national and international news stories. He provided media representation of The Purpose Driven Life, and literary representation of the New York Times best-sellers, Mistaken Identity, The Shack, Convicted, Son of Hamas and Bonhoeffer. Wes has been interviewed on The TODAY Show, NBC Nightly News, ABC’s Prime Time, Dateline NBC, CNN Headline News, and quoted by TIME Magazine, The New York Times, People Magazine, the Associated Press, Agence-France Presse and others.
Wes’s book, Bond of Brothers: Connecting with Other Men beyond Work, Weather and Sports, seeks to move men from silent and broken lives to the company of men where conversation, spiritual friendship and a life filled with friends and brothers define and complete God’s purposes for them. Wes is the director of the Middle Tennessee New Canaan Society which hosts weekly men's breakfast events in Franklin and Nashville.
