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!
We have long been aware of the tremendous ministry of Teen Challenge. I consider it a real privilege to endorse this work. Thank God for places like Teen Challenge that not only understand the problem, but know God, who can set young people free and transform them into whole, useful, caring people.
Not only does Teen Challenge help our young people deal with their substance abuse, but it also gives our kids something to live for — a relationship with God, a healthy self-esteem, and a direction in their lives that finally leads somewhere.
It’s going to take the all-out commitment of concerned citizens like you and me to help turn the tide of drug abuse among our kids, but for Teen Challenge to help we need your help now more than ever. A wise person once said that God’s reward for a job well done is that He always gives us a bigger job to do. We have that bigger job, and with your generosity we’ll help more of America’s youth than ever before.
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.

Too many young [people] have already lost their lives, and too many others have suffered serious injury for us to ignore the problems of juvenile alcohol and drug abuse. Programs such as yours [Teen Challenge] work to change young people’s lives by changing their hearts. I commend you for your work with young men who are addicted to drugs or alcohol.” (See President Bush’s comments on YouTube)
It is a pleasure to extend most sincere congratulations to Teen Challenge of Mississippi on their outstanding work in assisting Mississippi individuals who struggle with alcohol and/or drug problems.
As our nation works to solve the problems of our society, we must realize that the government alone cannot provide the way out. We must recruit the assistance of faith-based organizations, such as Teen Challenge, which offer a personalized, caring menagerie of services to make lasting transformations in people’s lives.
I wish Teen Challenge of Mississippi much continued success and appreciate the service they provide to the people of Mississippi.

Of all the drug programs reported to the Commission, the most successful is the religiously based program conducted by Teen Challenge.
