Adult and Teen Challenge Centers offer solutions to youth, adults, and families who struggle with life-controlling problems. We endeavor to help people become mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well, and spiritually alive. Western Michigan Adult and Teen Challenge is part of the Teen Challenge USA network; offering the largest network of long-term holistic recovery programs in the U.S.A. In 1958, Teen Challenge in New York City was a direct result of one man's obedience to God in prayer - David Wilson. Still today, lives of the students, their families, and friends are continually being transformed by the love of God.
Western Michigan Adult and Teen Challenge... a compassion and burden for the Teen Challenge ministry was birthed in the heart of Reverend Phillip McClain in 1969. Immediately, he began a street ministry. Addicts and alcoholics began responding to the gospel message of Jesus Christ. It was obvious that some of them needed a live-in program to get them out of their environment, distance themselves from their past, and provide the opportunity for the discipleship process.
