Westport The Teen Challenge Choir will sing Friday, Sept. 20, at the Westport Federated Church, 6486 Main St. 7 p.m. There is no charge, however, A Love Offering is requested to help pay their expenses.
The choir is composed of young men from all over the United States. They are truly unique because every member comes from a background of drugs, alcohol, and/or crime. Each member with his own story from murder to heroin addiction testifies to the miracle working power of God’s love.
The choir represents over 200 students residing at the Teen Challenge Training Center in Rehrersburg, Penn. Teen Challenge is the largest non-profit rehabilitation program in the world with over 100 induction centers in the United States and has a documented 86 percent cure rate.
The choir has shared their music and ministry at churches, street corners, prisons, high schools, military bases, coffee houses, on radio and television. They have appeared in Washington, D.C., on the steps of the Capitol and at the Washington Monument. They have share their freedom in Christ in Philadelphia at the Liberty Bell and Independence Square. They have also appeared on the 700 Club.
