Wesley grew up in the northeast and is a graduate of Southern California Teen challenge. After a long battle with addiction and the prayers of friends and family he was able to enter the doors of Teen Challenge in California where God released him from the bondage of addiction to alcohol and drugs. After experiencing freedom through the love of Christ, he felt strongly called to lead others to that same peace and freedom.
He went on to enroll and graduate from the Teen Challenge Ministry Institute in Los Angeles California (2010). Since March 2011, he has been faithfully serving at Ozarks Teen Challenge as a mentor and parent contact in his staff role with us.
Wesley takes inspiration for his work with students from the life of the Apostle Paul and how the Lord turned a story of tragedy into triumph. His passion is to see young men not only transformed by the power of God but to also leave equipped to live a healthy Christian lifestyle.
