We are so thrilled to let you know that we will be having Steve Prendergast, the Director of Teen Challenge Ottawa come join us on Sunday August 25th! Steve will be sharing his own testimony of overcoming addiction, as well as sharing an update on Teen Challenge Ottawa and their progress towards opening the centre. I (Dan) am a byproduct of this program. I did the program back in 2012 and am now your pastor today, so I believe and support this ministry 100%.
If you know someone struggling with addiction, this would be a great service to bring them to!
Teen Challenge is a 1 year long faith-based rehabilitation program designed for alchoholics and drug addicts to get free from addiction. They boast a 85% success rate for graduates 5 years after graduation compared to a 5-15% success rate at secular rehabs. The key difference? The “Jesus Factor”.
Teen Challenge Canada is in the process of opening a centre in Ottawa so that they can serve those struggling in the Ottawa and Valley area. Steve will be coming to share about their progress and how we can help.
How can you help?
Steve will be sharing more about the various ways we can help but first of all you can help by praying. Secondly we can help financially, we will be taking a free-will offering for Teen Challenge. There are also opportunities to sponsor a student, or to commit to monthly giving. We would love for each of you to pray and ask God how much he would like you to sow into this ministry.
