Adult & Teen Challenge of Central Canada Appoints New Interim Executive Director

Steve Paulson first pioneered Adult & Teen Challenge in Central Canada 25 years ago, and has faithfully served as executive director through growth, hardships, miracles and thousands of changed lives.
With Steve now transitioning into new responsibilities at Global Teen Challenge in Columbus, Georgia, and continuing as the Global TC representative for North America/Canada, we have released him from his ED duties here in Central Canada. We are pleased to have Steve continue to provide oversight at ATCCC, as board treasurer.
The board of directors have selected Daniel Emond as the new interim executive director (responsible to Steve) effective immediately, and assuming the full-time position on January 1, 2021. Daniel graduated the program in 2007 and has dedicated himself to its service ever since. He’s functioned in a variety of leadership roles over the years, including program director, development director and managing director.

We look forward to continued growth at Adult & Teen Challenge with the same level of excellence and purpose - to see people find hope. We’re excited about the development of our new community offices, the growth of our SURGE and Successful Living Programs, long-term discipleship, jail outreach, Living Free support groups, vehicle donation program and Super Thrift stores.
As we make this succession of leadership, we are thankful for your continued partnership and support to help those in addiction.
Herb Buller, Board Chair
On behalf of the ATC Board of Directors
