The Teen Challenge National Board of Directors elected Rev. Snow Peabody as the Washington, D.C. liaison in January, 2010. Snow will be replacing Dennis Griffith, who went to be with the Lord in October, 2009. Snow will serve Teen Challenge as their national representative and will continue his duties in Arizona as Executive State Director.
“It is an honor,” Peabody stated, “to represent over 243 Teen Challenge centers nationally to the White House, United States Congress, and government agencies that regularly deal with substance abuse issues facing America.” He went on to say, “With Teen Challenge USA’s 7,348 bed spaces and having one of the highest cure rates in the nation, our faith-based solution to the drug problem is a tremendous witness to our government leaders.”
Snow began working for Teen Challenge to help people struggling with drug and alcohol addiction as a volunteer while a student at the University of Arizona. He has served as the Executive State Director of Teen Challenge of Arizona for 34 years. From 1987 – 1991 Rev. Peabody was also the National Director for Teen Challenge USA.
In addition to his responsibilities with Teen Challenge of Arizona, Snow Peabody currently serves on the National Religious Broadcasters Association President’s Council, the National Recovery Monthly Planning Partner Council, the Arizona National Day of Prayer Board of Directors, and the National Teen Challenge Board of Directors.
