Malcolm Smith, Founder and Executive Director of Adult and Teen Challenge WA
Malcolm Smith became a Christian at the age of 18, beginning his service to the Lord as a Sunday School teacher. He has since served as a youth pastor, the director of Teen Challenge NSW Academy of Youth Ministry, Asia Pacific Director for Teen Challenge and was a founding member of the Global Teen Challenge Board that watches over 1,500 centres in
129 nations, and has left a world-wide gospel footprint.
Malcolm was called to Western Australia in early 1985 where he helped set up Teen Challenge WA. Some 35 years later, Malcolm continues to head up the ministry (now Adult & Teen Challenge WA) and is still preaching, teaching and bringing people to Jesus via the gospel today.
Adult & Teen Challenge WA has helped thousands of young people to break free from the curse of drug and alcohol addiction and to lead healthy, drug-free lives and to be restored to their families by the grace of God and Malcolm’s obedience to the call of God.
Malcolm has earned many accolades over his many years of ministry to those young people affected by drug and alcohol addictions, the most prestigious of which was the Prime Minister’s Award for Alcohol and Other Drug Excellence and Innovation in Canberra, ACT.
