Teen Challenge is a 12-month residential discipleship ministry for women eighteen years of age and over. Upon completion of the three-month induction phase located in Los Angeles or Kern County facilities, the women transfer to our Ventura women’s Christian Life Training Center for the remaining nine months. Chapel services, Bible studies, and general work programs are held daily. It is also possible for them to receive their high school diploma or GED certificate through the local school district. The first step for entering our Teen Challenge program and discipleship training for women is to call our office for an appointment, fill out an application, and meet with one of our induction advisors. You can call any of our Southern California Teen Challenge locations to start the interview process.
The philosophy of the ministry of Teen Challenge is “peer-to-peer” mentoring according to 1 Corinthians 1:4-5. Our advisors help the women to make adjustments essential to coping with real life problems. Each phase helps them grow spiritually and emotionally.
