Two Brothers, One Calling, and a Lasting Legacy. For sixty years, the faith-based ministry of Teen Challenge has been bringing hope to those bound by drug and life controlling addictions. Since the very first Teen Challenge Center opened its doors in Brooklyn, New York the ministry has grown to 1,400 Centers across 122 nations. Through the doors of every Teen Challenge program, there are testimonies of men and women who have walked out free because of the transforming power of Jesus Christ.
