Thank you to the members of the Teen Challenge Choir for their visit on Sunday, January 6th.
Teen Challenge is a successful addiction recovery program for teens and adults that was begun by Dave Wilkerson, author of The Cross and the Switchblade and who ministered to teen gangs in New York City in the 1960s. Their mission statement is “To provide youth, adults and families with an effective and comprehensive Christian faith-based solution to life-controlling problems, such as substance abuse, in order to become productive members of society. By applying biblical principles, Teen Challenge endeavors to help people become mentally-sound, emotionally-balanced, socially-adjusted, physically-well, and spiritually-alive.”
They’ve done some great life-changing work, and this provides an opportunity to not only support that work but to also personally interact with those who’ve benefited directly from the ministry.
