Massillon Coicou, CFO
As a young adult, Massillon served as a youth leader in his church and later in several Christian organizations as an Accountant and Administrator. With a Degree in Economics and Commerce, Massillon came to HTC in February 2010, as an Accounting Consultant.
While assisting the Administration Department, he served the ministry with love and selflessness by getting involved and mentoring several students in the program. Massillon always felt the call of God for this ministry, so in April 2021, he answered the call by resigning from his position as Accountant and Administrator to take on the full-time position as CFO of Haiti Teen Challenge.
Both Massillon and his wife, Nerlande, work at HTC as God’s servants, participating in the Edification of His kingdom in Haiti to transform lives. Massillon is also the Administrator of Rendez-Vous Christ Church.

Women's Program Director
Nerlande has a degree in Applied Sciences in Civil Engineering. Most of her previous experience is in the field of management of construction work of various types. She worked for G&L Construction, SETAM, ARTECA and was a consultant in civil engineering for a USAID project under DAI.
She felt rewarded by being able to contribute to the reconstruction of the destroyed irrigation system after Hurricane Jeanne hit the Northwest region of Haiti. She will never forget the way one of the team members thanked her for the humanity with which she dealt with him in his work. In a career of almost 50 years no one had treated him with such respect and kindness.
She realized helping in the construction of a building is one thing, but helping to build a life is something quite different and amazing!
Serving at Haiti Teen Challenge changed her life's path and career plan entirely.
Her greatest dream is to have a long life, in order to be able to work, and through her work, offer hope to future generations.
