David Wilkerson, founder of the recovery program Teen Challenge and of the Time Square Church in New York City, has gone to be with the Lord after a head on collision in Texas on Wednesday afternoon.

Wilkerson authored the best-selling book The Cross and the Switchblade, which impacts many still today, and which was made into a movie starring Pat Boone.  My wife, Karen, worked for Dave Wilkerson in New York a number of years ago.

David founded Teen Challenge in 1958, as an Evangelical outreach to bring troubled youth—especially those with drug addictions—to a place of healing and salvation.
