David Wilkerson

David Wilkerson (1931-2011) was founding pastor of Times Square Church in New York City and founder of Teen Challenge, an addiction recovery ministry for troubled youth. His bestselling The Cross and the Switchblade chronicles his first years working with disillusioned teenagers on the streets of New York. Wilkerson’s work inspired the conversion and ministry of evangelist and former gang member Nicky Cruz and remains a testament to the transformative power of the gospel amid the grit of urban street culture.
