Our Team

Beau Glenn, Executive Director

Beau founded Pure Adventure in 2006 following 12 years of service with Campus Crusade for Christ and the FamilyLife ministry in Little Rock, Arkansas. Beau is a native of Fort Worth and a 1980 graduate of Texas Tech University (BBA Finance). For many years Beau enjoyed his service in the commercial real estate industry as a senior executive with the Henry S. Miller Company and later as a partner with the Trammell Crow Company. He and Lori married in 1985 and have four children, all boys (except the first three). Lori is a native of Sonoma, California, and a resident graduate of the Gemological Institute of America. Beau and Lori enjoy hanging out together, with friends, and with their adult children, who make them laugh.

       Cohlby Youtsey, Director of Events

Cohlby joined Pure Adventure in June of 2015 after teaching 6th and 7th grade math in Fort Worth ISD for seven years. He grew up in Cypress, Tx and is a 2008 graduate of TCU’s College of Education. While teaching at the Young Men’s Leadership Academy during its inaugural years, Cohlby realized his passion for working with and empowering all young men. After three years at YMLA he felt God’s call to leave one classroom, and step into a different one! Cohlby’s desire is to cultivate young men into godly men, husbands, and fathers for the future. Cohlby and his wife Christina married in 2012, and have been blessed with two boys; Knox and Alistair.

                              William Chilton, Director of Regional Advancement

William, born and raised here in Fort Worth, joined Pure Adventure in November of 2018. He graduated from the University of Arkansas in 2014 where he obtained his Bachelor’s degree in Supply Chain and Logistics with a minor in Marketing. He moved back to Dallas for two years and was growing in his career when he made the hop over to Fort Worth to work in his most recent role of procurement at Jess Halls Serendipity. Shortly after this move, he met his wife Stephanie Culwell, who is a physician assistant in Trauma Surgery at John Peter Smith Hospital. William was given an opportunity to work at Pure Adventure and felt a clear calling to pursue a position in ministry using his background in business logistics and marketing. William and Stephanie seek an active lifestyle through fun outdoor activities, quality time with the close people in their lives, and new experiences.
