All the way from Gander Newfoundland, Canada – Annette learned about Teen Challenge through reading the several books about the ministry and watching the movie The Cross and the Switchblade. Annette left 21 years of retail experience behind to enroll in the Teen Challenge Ministry Institute for 2 years of preparation to work for a Teen Challenge center. Annette joined the team in August of 2001. A wonderful example to our students, Annette has been a Christian, serving the Lord, for 29 years. She is certified in Teen Challenge’s specialized bible curriculum. Annette is most passionate about working with the students on their bible curriculum, praying with them and encouraging them to be beautiful and successful women of God. The motivation behind what she does at CGA is the fact that she knows she is in God’s will. Annette says “being at CGA is like living in the book of Acts!” Annette is dedicated and loyal. She has a great sense of humor, and is great at getting a good a laugh from the students and her co workers. A true Canadian, Annette enjoys cold weather, traveling and drinking hot tea.
