Happy Renew Year

By February 2, 2016February 11th, 2016No Comments

As we reflect on 2015, we are amazed yet again at how God has been with us through every trial and triumph. Our collective new year’s resolution can be summed up in one beautiful, perfect name: JESUS! To know Him and make Him known is what Life Challenge again resolves for 2016.

The provision, favor and help of God has been abundant, timely and creative throughout challenging financial needs in the past year. We rejoice at how He used so many of you to demonstrate His care. We are grateful for the generous support, prayers and partnership of our dear friends.

Much-needed refurbishments to our campuses and infrastructure included the expansion and repaving of the parking lot of the main Detroit campus parking lot. We also received a grant for furnishing (bunk beds and dorm furniture) our Flint campus.

The one-year program has been strategically re-engineered into three phases, creating the most opportunity to reach the most people with the most wonderful, delivering, saving, healing gospel! Now, our full program includes up to 12 months of services and begins with a 90-day commitment.
Life Begin | 90 Days
Life Construct | 6 Months
Life Equip | 3 Months

Our heart is to respond in ever more powerful ways to God’s call to provide hope, healing and help to those bound by addiction. Last year we tackled the heroin epidemic in northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan by launching a Crisis Referral Center in Toledo. Martin Hall (a LC graduate) also responded to that call and serves as director, facilitating referrals and placements in Life Challenge/Teen Challenge programs.

Our mission is far more than simply seeing addicts and alcoholics get clean and sober. We are called to help people find new life in Jesus Christ. And then to serve, teach, guide, love them to a restored mind, body and spirit and a hope-filled, addiction-free future. We currently have approximately 80 residents (men and women) who are at various stages in their journey of being rescued, redeemed and restored.
