Adult & Teen Challenge DALLAS

"Adult and Teen Challenge was more than a wake up
call, it has opened my eyes and given me a fresh vision.
I feel a revival being ignited within me. I was once a
mess, addicted to drugs and prison life, but God has
turned me around. I am at a turning point in my life."
- Cody B

[05/03/21]   Just a few testimonies that will bless you in this month's ATCD Newsletter:

I was in an extremely dark place, homeless, strung-out
and lost. I was arrested and 3 months later, I was here at
Adult and Teen Challenge. I am thankful for God's sweet
mercy and am now living in peace through Jesus.
- Jordan S.

I have been able to overcome anger, bitterness and
being a raging alcoholic through the freedom and
forgiveness of Jesus.
- Kevin B.

I’ve been Fighting a meth addiction for 13 years. I’m a
father of 3 and I want to be a father again. This place is
a blessing and through the power of God, I will be a
father again.
- Andrew H.

Before coming to Adult and Teen Challenge, I was bound
by chains. By God’s grace, I was able to come to ATC, and
day by day, those chains are falling off. Through Jesus, my
life has been changed tremendously.
