Ministry Institute

David Wilkerson recognized God was calling a significant number of redeemed and enthusiastic Teen Challenge graduates to the ministry. He also realized that with training, they could have an amazing impact on those from similar backgrounds and those living in needy drug and gang-infested communities.

To meet this need, Rev. Wilkerson established the Teen Challenge Ministry Institute at his Texas headquarters. The school successfully trained hundreds of students who are today in leadership ministry positions. He closed that school in 1980, and to ensure its continuance, he assisted with the establishment of that ministry here in Southern California in 1981.
