Our History

VisionTrust International was founded by Dr. Ernie Taylor, Mr. Gary Ganz, and Mr. Jeff Behan. Ernie Taylor, a lifelong missionary, was looking to start a different kind of organization; one that would come alongside children at a young age and continue to serve them through high school graduation. Jeff Behan and Gary Ganz were business partners with a desire that their for-profit company, VisionTrust Communications, not only measure success based on bottom-line performance, but dedicate its resources to a ministry that would change the world and increase the Kingdom of God. In 1997, the three formed VisionTrust International, Inc., developed the mission of the organization, and established its original Board of Directors.
