About Greater Piedmont Teen Challenge (GPTC)

Purpose

We are an adult male center.  We minister to men ages 18 and older. We serve men anywhere in NC or across our country.  Our goal is "To introduce hope and healing to individuals with life-controlling problems through a personal, loving relationship with Jesus Christ so they may live successfully in society." We focus on helping them become whole persons: mentally sound, emotionally balanced, socially adjusted, physically well and spiritually alive.

If you have never given your life to Jesus Christ, and would like to experience this hope and future, take time right now to pray this prayer.  "Father God, I believe you sent your son Jesus to this earth to die on the cross for my sins.  I believe you rose from the grave on the third day.  Forgive me of my sins.  Jesus, I receive you now as my Lord and Savior.  Thank you for saving me!  In Jesus' name, Amen.  Romans 10:9-10 says, "....if you confess with your mouth Jesus is Lord, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.  For it is with your heart you believe and are justified and it is with your mouth you confess and are saved."

If you prayed this prayer and would like more information about Teen Challenge please email Wayne at intake@gpteenchallenge.com.
