Pacific Northwest Adult & Teen Challenge


March Update

March 19, 2019

Boise Girls Academy

We have officially moved! As of February 14th, we have been in our new home and we couldn’t be happier. Moving into our new home hasn’t just given us more space, but it’s allowed us to experience new things! We now have a music class and a cooking/baking class each week. We are so thankful to everyone who supports, encourages, and prays for us. We know we are walking in the faithfulness of God and are so humbled by His goodness.

Willamette Valley Campus

The Willamette Valley Men’s Campus and Eugene Women’s held their first Pastors Breakfast on Tuesday, March 12th.  This will be a quarterly event meant to bring local Pastors, church leadership and law enforcement together to learn more about the resources available through Adult & Teen Challenge.  A big thank you to our guest speaker Junction City Police Chief Robert Morris for coming out to share his “out of the box” thinking and approach when you coming into contact with those struggling with addiction. We are looking forward to watching this outreach event grow and for us as a community to come together to educate our youth about drug awareness and to Put Hope Within Reach of those currently struggling with addiction.  For more information about these outreach events please contact or call 541-491-1002.

Graham Campus

We had the opportunity to sit with Rita Springer and be ministered too. Such a great time for these women.

These two ladies: Amanda and Theresa have completed the Phase 5 program and have transitioned to Absolute Ministries.

Our Development Coordinator Mikia Guy is working hard to get us connected in the community. She has relocated to Washington with her family and we are happy to have her be a part of our team in Graham.

We had a great time at our 2019 Bowl-a-Thon and we were able to raise $10,000 for the Ministry. A huge thank you to Hicker Dental Equipment for sponsoring our Ladies Campus and helping to Put Hope Within Reach!

We love it when we are out in the community and run into previous graduates of Graham Campus and they are doing amazing. Holly Sandoval it was great to see you and we look forward to having you reconnect with the ministry.

Jennifer was an alcoholic who didn’t want to live. She had known God but did not have a relationship with the Lord. She is doing amazing and growing and very gifted in singing and her creative arts. She has received so much healing and freedom in her life and starting to dream about life and what’s ahead.

Misty was homeless and lost everything that mattered to her in life. She was worn down and broken and surrendered her life to Jesus. She is doing great and is a strong influence at the campus and the love of Jesus is all over her life since coming to s Graham. She has a strong desire to serve in ministry and so excited about the life she has ahead.

Maggie, Amanda and Tesa (Student Life Coordinator ). Maggie will be completing the program in April and we are delighted to see her transition to Absolute Ministries. Maggie May was homeless in Portland for 7 years and addicted to drugs. She grew up a foster child, abandoned by her parents leaving her with no sense of belonging or hope and was a very angry woman. Since encountering Jesus her life has turned around completely. Her face radiates with joy everyday and she is surrendering her will and way to the Lord daily. She has found healing in tending to our garden and serving her sisters in the program in any way she can. She will often be found encouraging or praying for a new sister and bringing a living hope to others . Jesus is Maggie’s Savior and her attitude is contagious. We are excited to celebrate this new life with her in her transition.

Tri-Cities Jail Outreach

We are always excited when we receive letters, texts and emails from women both inside and outside the jails and prisons.

“Thank you for sending me the newsletter. God’s timing is so perfect. Though at times I really struggle to think in more positive ways, my faith is growing stronger. It’s the small miracles that matter most and keep me encouraged. You remind me to keep watching for God’s divine appointments.  Thank you too that something I wrote you was printed in the newsletter. It’s good to know you care.”

Another woman wrote, “I want to let you know that I really appreciate the newsletters and cards you send to me. During this tough time, you remind me of the love that God gives. He never fails to show me that He knows me and acknowledges me. I’m so happy for the spiritual family He introduced me to and I am happy to do life with you wonderful ladies. Thank you!”

It is such a blessing to send out our cards, newsletters and emails every month knowing that each woman who receives them will be touched by God’s love. Thank you for helping us mail over 750 newsletters and cards in February, sharing His love in each one.

Spokane Campus

They completed the challenge!

Four men completed what they set out to do and successfully completed our year-long discipleship recovery program. We had over 100 friends, family and supporters join us to celebrate these men’s faithfulness and to bless them as they take their next steps to impact the world for Jesus.  May the Lord lead and protect you!

Our students, volunteers and staff got to worship our Lord at the Chris Tomlin concert.  It is a powerful site to see our guys worshiping the Almighty Creator and press in with passionate abandon.  There is victory in Christ!

Within these past two years, we have been able to replace our 20-year-old vans with a 2017 and 2018 passenger van, thanks to our donors!  We transport our 30+ students to various outreaches, vocational training sites, churches and other activities.  These vans are comfortable, safe and fuel efficient.  Thank you Lord!
