It has been my privilege to serve in the Teen Challenge ministry the past 38 years, with the last 22 years being here with Sacramento Valley Teen Challenge. Working with each one of you has been such a joy for my wife, Carla, and myself. God has given all of us so much fruit for our labors together, with spiritual children all over the country.
However, the Lord has shown me that my time with Teen Challenge is soon to come to a close. Carla and I do not know what is next, but we do know it is time to begin the transition of leadership for this wonderful ministry. I have assured the SVTC Board of Directors that I will stay to help them hire and thoroughly train in the new Executive Director. There are also other things I hope to see accomplished in the ministry before I leave that will help make for a smooth transition. So this process may even take up to 12 months or longer to complete.
Please keep the ministry, especially the Board of Directors, in your prayers. We want to find the individual that God will call in to help take this critically needed ministry into an even more fruitful future. If you would also keep Carla and I in your prayers we would appreciate it. With our love and respect,
Dick & Carla Rhoads
