Jimmy Jack grew up as the youngest of nine children in a household devastated by drug abuse and violence. The world labeled him as an outcast who would never change, but God had a better plan for his life. After graduating from Brooklyn Teen Challenge in 1985 (a Christ-centered drug and alcohol rehabilitation program), and Central Bible College in 1989, the Lord led Jimmy and his wife Miriam to establish a Teen Challenge coffeehouse outreach (Freedom Outreach) in Long Island to reach others whose lives had been ravished by drugs and alcohol. This became Long Island Teen Challenge, which now has five residential homes. Then in 1992, he pioneered Freedom Chapel, a church birthed out of compassion, to disciple the many hurting young people who had given their lives to the Lord through the residential homes of Long Island Teen Challenge, outreaches, and evangelism crusades. Today, both ministries are thriving under Jimmy’s leadership. More recently, he has founded Teen Challenge centers in Santiago, Dominican Republic, and Albany, New York and is the Director of Brooklyn Teen Challenge along with Don Wilkerson. Jimmy and his wife Miriam have three precious, multi-talented, God-loving children—David, Dionnza, and Dominique.
