REHOBETH: Tonight at 6 PM at Rehobeth Baptist Church students and faculty of Teen Challenge in Bay Minette Alabama will be presenting the service at Rehobeth.
Everyone is encouraged to attend. The message is powerful and one that needs to be heard.
Teen Challenge "transforms lives as part of one of the world's largest and most successful Christ-based residential discipleship centers.
Addiction has taken captive over 40 million Americans. It is epidemic everywhere, destroying lives and devastating families. 9 out of 10 addicts are not seeking treatment, or they are not finding it. That's 9 out of 10 struggling with one of the world's most debilitating epidemics, yet without help and without hope. Today alone, 125 American will have died from their addiction.
While I have never been to a Teen Challenge center, I have had the distinct pleasure of helping several get into Teen Challenge. Have a great telephone relationship but have never personally met the staff.
But I have seen the fantastic results of Teen Challenge. They have changed lives and circumstances of people who have had 10 or more year battles with drugs and criminal charges.
PARENTS - FAMILIES - FRIENDS often times you are faced with loved ones involved with drugs. And your actions become enablers for them. Please let me encourage you to attend tonight at 6 PM. This will allow you to be apart of saving your loved ones life.
As one of the presenters tonight will be a young man from Rehobeth. He went into Teen Challenge at 130 pounds and today weight over 180. He has regained his health and has a grip on life after a major drug addiction and struggle.
If you have someone you know in a struggle, cancel your plans tonight and be at Rehobeth Baptist Church on Highway 605. Just south of Rehobeth Elementary and Rehobeth Middle School.
This time you spend might allow you to play a role in saving someone's life.
And TEEN CHALLENGE is not just for teenagers, just males or just females. They take people of many ages.
UPDATED WITH VIDEO
Alabama Teen Challenge from Bay Minette Alabama brought seven young men to Rehobeth Baptist Church to give their testimonies.
Each spoke of different circumstances and addictions they have encountered. They spoke of programs they had been in which identified the problem(s) they had in their lives. But the programs never identified the solutions.
Perhaps you are a parent, sibling or a friend watching someone you care about self destruct, trapped within the snares of addiction. Maybe your hope is melting away along with their health and sanity. As a concerned person, you have hoped they would come to their senses. Perhaps this person struggling with addiction is even you.
Alabama Teen Challenge is a 12 month, residential Christ-centered, discipleship program for life controlling behaviors and addictions.
It is the desire of Teen Challenge to see lives rescued and turned around forever. Alabama Teen Challenge trust that you will seize the wonderful opportunity by contacting them to embark on your courageous journey towards a new and joyful life.
Family members often times give up on your loved ones. You have tried several programs for your loved ones.
Alabama Teen Challenge, I can give a personal testimony on lives that I have seen changed. Not as a result of Teen Challenge but as a result as GOD using the program in mighty and powerful ways. Because it is GOD that changes.
You will see the first young man who speaks about his life. His name is Clayton Crawford. A graduate of Rehobeth High School and the father of two beautiful children that he loves very much.
When Clayton entered the program some 11 months ago he weighed about 130 pounds. Today he weighs around 180 pounds. Clayton gives a dynamic testimony of how his life changed for worse in drugs, two different women pregnant, and how he had spiraled into disaster. Clayton speaks of programs he went into that identified the problems but never the solution.
In the 11 months at Alabama Teen Challenge, GOD has done wonderful things in and through Alabama Teen Challenge in Clayton's life.
Please watch and listen as these young men speak. And it is for real. For Clayton and some others I know where they were at before GOD using Alabama Teen Challenge and see where they are after completion of the program.
Please pray for each one in the program and the leaders of the program.
If you wish to help with this program, which is not government funded, please call Alabama Teen Challenge at 205-763-0909.

FROM RICKEY STOKES: I have personally seen and witnessed lives changed through the ministry of Alabama Teen Challenge. While I have never visited their centers, I have a great phone relationship with them. I have had the distinct pleasure and honor of GOD using me as a spoke in the wheel of getting people into Alabama Teen Challenge. And I have seen them after completion of the program.
Please, I beg of you, if you know someone fighting the addictions, do not hesitate to call them. Get them in the program. Their life depends on your "action" to make it happen.
I also encourage you to help support the program. It works!
