As the Directors of Kansas City Girls Academy, we have seen some of the most broken young ladies experience an incredible transformation here. For example:
– We witnessed a 15-year-old who had been experimenting with serious drugs complete our program to get back on course academically and even become the homecoming queen of her high school.
– We experienced a transformation in a teenager who had been offering herself to any guy she could get attention from — she developed self-worth and self-respect while here and is today a happily married woman.
– We worked with a young gal here who was previously an amazing student, but had lost hope so she started harming herself. After finding hope again at Kansas City Girls Academy, she is now attending college and leading summer missions programs.
– We watched daily as hope and meaning returned to a 14-year-old girl who had tried to commit suicide twice before coming here. She had more scars on her arms than we had ever seen before. She is now lifting her arms in worship to her Savior and has a renewed perspective on her true value and purpose in life.
These are just a few examples of lives changed. Every girl who goes through our program has another incredible story to tell, and that’s what keeps us going. Even with as difficult as some girls can be in their early days here, we are encouraged because we often find that the more difficult the girl is at first, the more glorious her turnaround will be. Call us, to learn how we might be able to also help your girl and your family get through this time of crisis.
Alan and Deneé Biggers, Executive Directors
Alan & Deneé Biggers, along with their two young daughters (Addie and Aubrey) are warm, friendly, and people-oriented. The Biggers live life with a strong desire to serve teenagers and help families who are wrestling with feelings of lost hope.
Alan was born in Hawaii, raised in Alaska, and became ordained for ministry in Georgia. Deneé received her master’s degree in family counseling from Regent University and has since used this degree as a Teen Challenge counselor, Private School Guidance Counselor, and Patient Liaison for a premier hospital in Atlanta. Coupled with Alan’s 12 years of experience in pastoral ministry, Alan and Deneé feel as if their position as Executive Directors of the Kansas City Girls Academy is an ideal match.
The Biggers family has recently been serving on staff with Global Teen Challenge, putting hope within reach of families around the world. Their primary calling is to introduce people to a life-transformational relationship with Christ. This is accomplished as they use their talents to educate, equip, and mobilize families with the tools needed to experience hope.
