| the program |
Group Studies for New Christians (GSNC) is a series of fourteen week-long classes developed by Teen Challenge USA. GSNC classes are offered in every residential Teen Challenge program in the country. These classes teach Biblical principles and cultivate a knowledge base that will help students develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ as they overcome their life-controlling problems.
Personal Studies for New Christians (PSNC) is an individual study program developed by Teen Challenge USA. Teen Challenge students and their mentors design an individual study program through a mutually agreed upon learning contract that addresses the unique needs, concerns, and issues that they struggle with. Students work through the items of their PSNC learning contract at their own pace.
PSNC learning contracts include such elements as Scripture memorization, reading assignments, topical studies, and applying these to each students’ unique issues or circumstances.
Stay Sharp Drug Prevention & Awareness Program
Stay Sharp has been created to impact students across the nation with a clear and urgent call to personal and peer drug abuse prevention. This positive message reaches out to steer the hearts and minds of this current generation towards a better path.
Engages the hearts and minds of students with true stories from their peers
Educates them on the dangers and consequences of drug and alcohol abuse
Equips them to make healthy choices
Empowers them with truth and hope
Many churches will host Teen Challenge for a service where we can have a choir of our students sing, share testimonies and have a message by the Director. We will always accommodate for different worship styles, denominations and time frames. Please call our office if you would like to host a Teen Challenge service.
Devotions & Chapel
Morning and nightly devotions given by staff or guest ministers daily. We also gather together as a complete staff and student body for chapel once a week on Friday mornings for worship, prayer and sharing of God's Word.
Partnering with Micah Ministries, a local Fredericksburg homeless ministry, we help to serve breakfast once a month.
We also frequently volunteer for various organizations, churches, ministries and the elderly or disabled in and around the Fredericksburg / Northern Virginia area.
Evangelism and various forms of urban outreach are central to the Teen Challenge ministry, originating with David Wilkerson as told in the book The Cross and the Switchblade .
Our staff tries their best to plan recreational outings from time to time to local attractions, bowling, movies, sporting events, hikes, museums and parks. We also have free weights in a workout area and a basketball hoop on campus.
Our 9-acre property requires upkeep and maintenance. We have daily chores and two days a week built into our schedule to reinforce the character quality of responsibility and maintain a work ethic. Our program also features a wood shop. Participation in 5 Guys in a Truck is also built into the program.
