As the Chief Executive of PureHope, Noel’s aim is to inspire and equip followers of Jesus to pursue a world free of sexual exploitation and brokenness by starting with personal transformation. Along with leading the day-to-day operations of PureHope, Noel works to form strategic and collaborative partnerships globally to advance the life-changing message that everyone who hopes in Jesus purifies him or herself, just as He is pure (1 John 3:3).
Prior to joining PureHope in 2008, he was a litigation attorney and worked in law firms in New York, Washington, DC, and Cincinnati. He received his law degree with honors from The University of Texas School of Law, and his undergraduate degree from South Dakota State University, where he quarterbacked the football team.
Noel lives in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area with his high-school sweetheart, Dr. Vanessa Bouché, and their two daughters. You can find him poolside with his family, musing in an armchair over some obscure piece of literary brilliance, or in the kitchen perfecting his hummus recipe. Noel has a hospitable heart and is generous with his prayers and encouragement of others.
