Teen Challenge visiting Kenora, November 13th @ 7:00pm Calvary Pentecostal Church
Adult & Teen Challenge of Central Canada
Overcoming addiction. Every day.
History & Mission
Adult & Teen Challenge is a Christian discipleship program aimed at helping people who are struggling with addiction. It was founded in 1958 by the late Rev. David Wilkerson (author of The Cross & The Switchblade). There are now 1400 programs operating 118 countries, including those in Central Canada: Brandon, Winnipeg, Denare Beach & Thunder Bay.
Our mission is to develop and nurture the transformation of restored individuals into useful, productive, law-abiding citizens committed to Christian faith, values and living.
Whether you are struggling with a life-controlling addiction, or know someone who is, you don’t have to face it alone. Our 12-month residential programs for men and women 18+ can help you find freedom from your addictions. Individual & group mentoring, spiritual disciplines, Global Teen Challenge curriculum, work therapy, community service and recreational activities make our program well-rounded and unique. Our model for recovery is based on biblical principles, accountability and support.
Community Support Groups
Adult & Teen Challenge has recently added non-residential support to help more people find hope. This includes ministry to individuals with a past or current addiction, as well as to family and friends who need guidance in helping a struggling loved one. Using curriculum and a small-group discipleship method developed for ATC by Living Free Ministries, groups led by trained staff and volunteers are currently running in many churches and prisons throughout the region. Current groups available are:
- Concerned Persons: For those who have a current or past relationship with a person who has a life-controlling problem.
- Stepping into Freedom: For anyone struggling with a life-controlling problem like drugs, sex, gambling, alcoholism or workaholism.
- Free to Grow: A group to help people overcome disappointments and setbacks that hinder emotional and spiritual development.
- Crossroads: Deals with choosing the road to sexual purity, by presenting biblical insights to help a person break free and stay free.
