“All I know is, I am supposed to be in prison for the next 8 years, but instead I am starting college at the Minnesota School Of Business on January 5th. Soon I will be a tax - paying citizen. I have never had a job before in my life. But thanks to Teen Challenge I have a very bright future!”
“I am a recent graduate of Teen Challenge. I have been arrested for everything from 1st degree Assault, to Manufacturing Methamphetamine. I have a huge criminal history and many people had given up on me, and the courts allmost through the book at me! I am supposed to be in prison right now for 2nd degree possession of Meth.
But Teen Challenge taught me a new way to live! Teen Challenge is the only Institution I have been too that no body there has anything bad to say about it. This is the first negative thing I have ever heard about Teen Challenge. I can honestly say that going to Teen Challenge was the best year of my life! I went from Bear Macing people and hitting them with baseball bats, to singing in the best 400+ person choir in the nation, in every denomination in churches accross Minnesota and Wisconsin. My favorite day of the week is now Sunday!
On the outside looking in, I know it's hard to see how Teen Challenge is so effective. The author of this artice has obviously done research on Teen Challenge. Has the author ever went to hear the choir at a church? Have they attended a graduation? Have they seen the transformed lives God produces?”
