HARVEST

2025

What is Harvest2025?

According to the latest National Survey on Drug Use and Health, over 20 million Americans over the age of 12 struggle with substance use disorder, commonly called addiction. In July 2021, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported more than 93,000 deaths by drug overdose in 2020, an unprecedented increase of nearly 30 percent from the previous year.

At Adult & Teen Challenge, we are burdened by these numbers and believe that God is calling us to minister to people chained in cycles of addiction.

After much prayer and deliberation, Adult & Teen Challenge is excited to announce Harvest2025, a bold, new vision to reach people with the transformative power of Jesus Christ. With God’s favor, these new initiatives will increase our outreach, expand our infrastructure, and improve our effectiveness, enabling us bring more souls into the kingdom of heaven.

Our guiding verse is Luke 10:2: “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.”

Will you partner with us in this great harvest? Your prayers and generosity play a key role in our evangelistic mission. Through the grace of God and your support, Adult & Teen Challenge continues to bring the good news of Jesus Christ to those battling addiction and other life-controlling issues.

Thousands of individuals, businesses, and foundations support Adult & Teen Challenge every year. We need that support now more than ever as the need increases. Our vision is to free all people with lifecontrolling issues through the power of Jesus Christ.

Your investment will allow us to expand our reach and bring the hope of Christ to more hurting people. Will you help make this vision a reality?

Because of your giving, lost teenagers, scared young mothers, traumatized soldiers, and other hurting souls will experience God’s freedom for the first time. Lives will be changed because you give to the harvest.

We are seeking people willing to join together in the Harvest. We have a Harvest goal of $5,000,000 to fund the vision. With this investment, we will increase the number of people we serve and combat the terrible scourge of addiction in our communities.
