New Chief Development Officer/Vice President of Marketing

It is a wonderful time at Adult & Teen Challenge USA (ATCUSA). We are dreaming new dreams and working hard to implement seven strategic initiatives we believe will change our ministry and its impact across the United States.


I am very excited to announce the new role of Chief Development Officer/Vice President of Marketing for ATCUSA. Jaimie Trussell has accepted the offer to serve in this executive leadership capacity effective March 1, 2019.


Jaimie comes to us with tremendous fund development, marketing, and leadership experience. A Springfield native and Missouri State graduate, most recently she served at Convoy of Hope in a senior fund development position working to raise millions in donations annually. Beyond increasing Convoy of Hope’s visibility, community engagement, and gift revenue, Jaimie also worked to build and grow key partnerships and relationships benefiting the Kingdom.


Jaimie lives on a small acreage in Fair Grove with her husband of 19 years, Robert, and two sons, Connor and Carson. Please join me in welcoming Jaimie to the ATCUSA executive team.
