Originally from Iowa, Peggy spent 29 years in Illinois as a pastor’s wife, graphic designer and mother of four. Feeling ready for a transition, Peggy felt God’s call to minister in a new capacity. That is when she joined the team here at Ozarks Teen Challenge in 2015 as our Office Manager.
In many ways, Ozarks TC was a familiar ministry for Peggy as she and her husband, Bill, had previously spent 10 years at a ministry similar to Teen Challenge in Des Moines, IA at the beginning of their careers. “We saw many young lives transformed, the majority of whom are still walking with the Lord today.” As a pastor’s wife, Peggy wore many hats from nursery worker to youth leader to office manager. Peggy also has extensive experience as a graphic designer and will help Ozarks TC in that capacity with its marketing efforts.
“I know that the only hope for true life change is a relationship with Jesus and seeing young men experience that is exciting. Even though I may not work directly with the students everyday, I strive to be a support to the dedicated staff that tirelessly work with our students and to provide quality care and service to our families.”
