Learning and Growing

A Different Kind of Education

Discipleship is what sets us apart from most recovery programs. This means that the foundation of our program is to teach our students to form a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. It is this central, spiritual dynamic upon which all Adult and Teen Challenge centers are built. A student’s training includes studying God’s Word, developing the daily practice of prayer and forming a life-changing connection with the Holy Spirit. Through our systematic curriculum, students begin to recognize the Holy Spirit’s work in their lives, to apply God’s Word to their life, and to invite God’s power to help them overcome their life-controlling problems.
