Testimonials

“I’ve believed in this ministry since its very beginning. And I continue to support it. I consider it a real privilege to endorse this work. Thank God for Teen Challenge!”            

-Rev. Billy Graham   

 

“In Teen Challenge, I learned REAL life skills. God erased the “street skills” I once knew and renewed my mind. I was surrounded by the love and grace of God… God has restored my family, my marriage and a once broken life!”      

—Bethany Marler, TC graduate  


 “I sincerely appreciate your efforts to reach and rehabilitate the many young people who have, at present, no hope in life. The ministry and dedication of Teen Challenge deserve the commendation of every citizen.”      

—President Ronald Reagan
