Name: Mike Van Bibber
Home Town: Kansas City, Missouri
Teen Challenege Center: Kansas City Girls Academy
Brief Testimony: I accepted Christ at age 12. Called to work with young people, I was an educator for 42 years. At retirement God called me to serve at Teen Challenge. When seeking a new position, I decided I no longer wanted to work with “kids”. God obviously had other ideas for me. What a blessing to work with the young women at Teen Challenge.
What do you enjoy most about your role? I enjoy working with a team whose main concerns are leading students to the Lord and keeping hope within their reach.
Why do you feel that leadership and training are valuable? We are all leaders in the sense that we are example setters for those around us. Our training inspires us to grow stronger in the Lord while helping us to gain new insights and skills that allow us to be better leaders for our students.
