40 days graphic pink


Teen Challenge was built upon prayer. On February 9, 1958, David Wilkerson, founder of Teen Challenge, decided to exchange the late night show for a night of prayer. One night while he was praying, David read an edition of Life magazine and wept as he looked at a sketch drawing of seven Dragon Gang on trial for killing 15-year-old polio victim, Michael Farmer. He felt the Spirit say to him, ‘Go and help those boys’.”

Now, 60 years later, Teen Challenge is in over 125 nations with 1,400 centers. 

Prayer is powerful. Join us in prayer for the nations and let's see lives transformed! 

Begins February 9!
