Adult and Teen Challenge North Dakota

Hello and we hope your summer is going well! We were blessed at the July 14th outdoor bbq and service with the singing and testimonials of participants in the Adult and Teen Challenge North Dakota.  These folks shared their stories with us and marveled us with their beautiful songs.  We’re so fortunate to see and hear first hand about the fight of their lives to find fulfillment through Jesus Christ has they see a hopeful new future before them.

Talk about a group that’s learning to share their gifts!  Are you interested to learn more about this program? If you are, we encourage you to check it out and visit their website at Freedom from Addiction | ND Adult & Teen Challenge (tc4hope.org).  You’ll be glad did!
