Our Executive Staff

“I am honored to serve as Executive Director of Teen Challenge Appalachian Region. I know of no other ministry more dedicated to making a difference in hurting lives than Teen Challenge. During the twenty six years I have served in the Teen Challenge ministry, I have seen many lives find lasting hope through Christ.


At Appalachian Teen Challenge, we believe God greatly values every person. Our caring, trained, and committed staff endeavor to convey this message of hope to lost young men, women, girls and boys. Many have found a new lifestyle on our campus, and studies show that a majority of our graduates today remain productive members in society.


As an honor accredited ministry, we take our calling seriously. We value integrity; therefore, we demand the best of our staff. After one visit on our campus, you will agree Teen Challenge is a ministry getting results, restoring broken lives.”
