Jerry Adams has served on the Ozarks Teen Challenge Board of Directors since 2012, and has been a financial supporter of Teen Challenge for more than 18 years. A graduate of Evangel University in Springfield, MO, Jerry has spent his career in the fields of communications and public relations. He has worked in TV broadcast news, bank public relations, and public information. He retired in 2012 as public information director for the city of Branson, MO after 17 years in that position.
Jerry believes that Jesus Christ can change lives, and he believes in the message and ministry of Ozarks Teen Challenge. “I have heard the testimonies and seen the transformations that have occurred in the young men going through our Teen Challenge program. It is encouraging to talk with so many parents who witness their wayward sons coming out as new creations in Christ.”
Jerry wants to see Ozarks Teen Challenge expand its campus to accommodate more troubled teens and equip them to re-enter society as productive citizens, strong Christians, and effective witnesses of the saving power of Jesus Christ. Jerry also serves as an Advisory Board Member for both Cox Health and US Bank.
