And without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is and that He is a rewarder of those who seek Him.

Dr. Teague has different God given assignments in his life and all of his assignments are grounded in faith.

At the heart and spirit of Dr. Teague's work is compassion and truth.
Dr. Teague is Born Again Christ Follower. He is also an ordained minister and scholar-practitioner, which means that he is a Christ follower who uses biblical wisdom to inform the knowledge that we have about ourselves and the world around us. Dr. Teague believes that illness and other life struggles can be overcome by the blessings of Spiritual interventions (e.g. love, faith, prayer, fasting, forgiveness, truth etc.). He has been approaching his work in this manner since 2005. Dr. Teague is a doctor of psychology (educational), licensed professional counselor, and mental health service provider. He is a faculty member at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU) , private practitioner, researcher, writer and CEO and Founder of Overcome. At MTSU he creates an environment in which students can learn in his general psychology, issues and ethics, and child psychology classes. Dr. Teague frequently conducts research with his students in order to introduce them to the process of scientific research but first and foremost critical thinking. He knows that his role as a faculty member goes beyond the classroom as he hopes to be a positive and approachable person in his students lives whenever needed.
As a private practitioner, Dr. Teague works with adolescents, adults, and couples at Overcome and Teague, Teague & Associates. He offers prayerful treatment based in spiritual and scientific "like-minded" interpretations of truth in his client's lives. Dr. Teague entered the counseling profession because he believes that everyone can be successful in life with the right support, increased self-awareness and insight that is unique to their life situations. He really enjoys seeing people be successful at leading a peaceful life. As a researcher, Dr. Teague has conducted studies on the effects of father absence in the lives of children and adolescents, attitudes on abortion, educational performance, and developmental trauma in children and adolescents, to name a few. He has had manuscripts related to marriage, educational motivation, and developmental trauma published in peer reviewed journals.

Dr. Teague founded the faith based non-profit organization called United Responsible Fathers of America (URFA) - now doing business as Overcome - in 2005. URFA focused for many years on the enhancement of the family and today the organization continues to focus on the enhancement of families by providing certain services and resources. These services and resources included family research, fatherhood support, motherhood support, broken family support, family court support and consultation, mediation, life coaching, health coaching, financial skills development, attorney referral, and development and administering educational information. Dr. Teague decided to operate under the name Overcome in order to broaden the scope of services provided by the organization while maintaining the spirit of the mission to empower individuals and families.
We here at Overcome believe that every thing that has been given to Overcome is a gift from God. We take very seriously the trust you put in Overcome when you give and we believe it is our God-given responsibility to be good stewards of every penny we receive. It is not our intention to burden you, or cause feelings of necessity, pressure or obligation for financial support in regards to the urgency of this ministry. God loves a cheerful giver and so do we.
It is our goal to uphold the standards and accountability of the Word of God as we are committed to fiscal integrity. Overcome also aspires to be compliant with the Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship put forth by the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability.
