Two Brothers, One Calling, and a Lasting Legacy.
For sixty years, the faith-based ministry of Teen Challenge has been bringing hope to those bound by drug and life-controlling addictions. Since the very first Teen Challenge Center opened its doors in Brooklyn, New York the ministry has grown to 1,400 Centers across 122 nations. Through the doors of every Teen Challenge program, there are testimonies of men and women who have walked out cured because of the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
Julie Klose, the daughter of Don Wilkerson and niece of David Wilkerson, grew up in the ministry of Teen Challenge. Julie is an educator and writer. She began her writing career as a regular contributor to a political website focusing on cultural issues from a Christian perspective, with a special passion for the pro-life movement. Julie’s articles have been published by Charisma News, The Christian Post, Life News as well as many others. She has been a guest on different radio programs, including Canada’s national public radio. Julie currently serves as Board Chair of the Radiance Foundation, a pro-life organization, and lives in Virginia with her husband Dan and their three children.
