Adult & Teen Challenge Mid-America

"Spiritual, God-directed, academic, social, life-transforming, life-changing, uplifting, challenging to higher heights and deeper depths in Christ. I have watched the efforts, effects, and results of Teen Challenge for many years. It never ceases to amaze me to see men come into the program, some by choice and some by direction, and in a relatively short period of time enter into a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ that so totally transforms their lives that they are never the same. Having once been overcome with life-controlling issues and loss of all or most of what was dear to them, they come forth as new men in Christ and as valuable, dedicated, and good citizens and family men. I cannot say enough good things for the ministry and programs of Adult and Teen Challenge Mid-America. God uses a tremendously dedicated staff, volunteers, and hundreds of financial supporters to make the difference in so many men’s lives."
-Rev. Dr. John I Chamness, Senior Pastor Perryville A/G
"As Senior Pastor at First Assembly of God in Farmington, Missouri, I am privileged to be a part of a church that has supported Teen Challenge Mid-America for about forty years. Each year in March we are honored to have the men's choir come and share with us what God is doing in the lives of the men at TC and to take annual faith promises in support of the center. Thank God for the difference He makes in the lives of men with life-controlling problems through the ministry of Teen Challenge. And what a great honor it is for us to be able to be a part of it." 
-Pastor Kevin Davis, Senior Pastor Farmington A/G
"Teen Challenge International of Mid-America is such a vital ministry in our world today. We have the New Creations ministry team at Lakeland on a regular basis. Our people enjoy the guys and they show up prayed up ready to minister to all ages. Their ministry is fresh and relevant even when doing the old favorites , the new contemporary songs or drama. More importantly is the rich anointing of the Holy Spirit that is present as they minister. This anointing is not just on the ministry teams but on the entire ministry of Teen Challenge International of Mid-America as the Lord uses them to reach men and impact our society for the Kingdom."
-Pastor Arvin Haynes, Senior Pastor, Lakeland Assembly of God (Wappapello, MO)
"I highly recommend to any struggling addict or family member of a struggling addict to turn to Teen Challenge for answers. Over the years I’ve seen Teen Challenge become God’s hands extended to those in need of freedom and deliverance. Teen Challenge is not an option. Teen Challenge is the answer. Teen Challenge works! It is your answer! It will work for you!"
-Pastor Dwayne Maynard, Lead Pastor Sikeston First Assembly of God, Sikeston, MO
"For the past two decades I have had the honor of serving on the ATCMA Board with many distinguished men and women. I also have the privilege of hosting approximately one-third of the men who are in the Teen Challenge program in our Sunday morning services. From my vantage point I can say without reservation that this ministry is making a powerful and eternal impact on those men. I have never been more enthused about the direction of ATCMA and its future than I am today. If you’re looking for a ministry that makes a difference to either refer someone to or invest in, you’ve found it in ATCMA."
-Pastor Gary Brothers, Senior Pastor, Cape First (Assembly of God church in Cape Girardeau, MO)
