Everything that we do is done very purposefully for the discipleship and spiritual development of our students. Our faith cannot be separated from our program. Students that are admitted into our program do not need to claim faith (and most of them do not), but while our spiritual activities (church attendance, bible study, etc.) are not optional, we ask that each student be respectful. We do not require that someone adhere to our beliefs as a condition of helping them.
Teen Challenge is a home mission ministry of the Assemblies of God.
STATEMENT OF FAITH
Let us help your daughter with a short-term program set in a safe and loving environment that is lower in cost and has a higher success rate than most therapeutic boarding schools or rehabs. We have a limited number of placements available, so call us today!
"My dreams seemed to slip away as the pain grew inside of me, darkening my existence and filling me with mixed desires. I couldn't deal with all of the chaos so I became part of it. I arrived at Springboard and they told me that it was a Christian program. I yelled at them and told them that I would not believe their religion. Two weeks later, I gave my life to Jesus Christ and I will never regret it. God delivered my need for medication and after that, a new life in me broke free. I cannot contain how much joy and peace is in me now because of Jesus Christ. The one thing that really has changed the most in my life is the hope that the Lord brings."
