I have gotten to go to a couple of these now, and I always leave so inspired! I wanted to share with you some quotes from guests, graduates, and their family members who spoke:
"This Christ-led program is one of the best in the country. The answer's always Jesus."
-Judge who attended the ceremony
"God did not change or fix my life at Teen Challenge. He gave me one I never knew existed."
"I pray to God every day that he would break me so He can heal me."
"Now instead of picking out a casket, we're picking out wedding dresses."
-Family member of graduate
"I've traded in a spirit of grief for a spirit of gratefulness."
"The family of the person's life I took while drunk driving showed forgiveness to me. It showed me I was worth something."
"I'm no longer defined by my past. I know the truth and I have a God who is on my side."
AMEN! Such an honor to hear about the life transformation that Jesus has brought about in the lives of these 11 people. This is the Good News of the Gospel!
**These monthly graduations are open to the public and are on the 4th Friday of each month from 1-3pm. The next one will be Friday, May 29. If you'd like to join me, check out the Upcoming Events link for more details!
