David Wilkerson began his ministry in small towns near Scottsdale and then in Philipsburg, Pennsylvania. However, he felt a calling to move to New York City in an effort to provide a ministry to teenage drug addicts as well as teenaged gang members. He became the lead pastor of the Times Square Church, which is a non-denominational church in New York City. Pastor Wilkerson remained leader of the church until his death in 2011.
Pastor Wilkerson focused much of his ministry in reaching out to teens. He was the founder of the nationally known program, Teen Challenge, which provides education and recovery for teenage drug addicts. Additionally, he founded the CURE Corps, which offers a Christian alternative to the Peace Corps. Additionally, Wilkerson is the founder of the ministry called World Challenge, which focuses on providing the gospel to other countries.
