Rev. Rodger Anderson – Executive Director
By 2002 I found myself at Teen Challenge broken and totally stripped of family, businesses, and everything I worked for all my life. God used the TC staff to help restore me and my family. I graduated from TC in 2003 and began working as TC Intern. I am grateful to Teen Challenge for helping me become a man of character and integrity. I am blessed with a beautiful Godly wife Monica, who is also an ordained minister. We served as a team for several years in foster care ministering to young children and teenagers. Teen Challenge has truly impacted my children, family, and friends. This has truly been an amazing journey with God! For me, there is no better ministry than helping men, women, children, and youth to get their lives back on track!

Jake White – Campus Director
My heart is for young men to come to Christ. I was a troubled teen and didn’t have any men or women of God around me to help me overcome the problems in my life. Growing up with a rough background, the Lord uses my testimony to show that it doesn’t matter what has happened in your life, that Christ can heal and change anyone’s heart. When Christ changed my life, I knew I wanted to work with troubled teens. Today I am doing that, and I feel truly blessed to be working for the Lord and helping his children come to know him.
