Event Details

We are excited to introduce you to the 2017 Banquet, “Unchained”featuring guest speaker Darryl Strawberry. Mr. Strawberry is a former Major League Baseball player who heralds four World Championships and an astounding eight All-Star appearances! In addition to all the accolades he has received, he also has a powerful story of redemption and will be sharing about his journey through addiction and recovery.

 

We are thrilled to hear from Mr. Strawberry and to share about the incredible things that God has been doing among the students of the Green Country and Adolescent centers! It’s because of partners like you - who have walked with us in ministry - that this work is even possible.

 

Did you know that...

  • the state of Oklahoma ranks 3rd in the nation for mental illness.
  • the state of Oklahoma ranks 2nd in the nation for substance abuse disorders.
  • the state of Oklahoma is ranked as 1st in the nation for the highest amount of opioid abuse.
  • Oklahoma has the most incarcerated women in the nation.
  • Oklahoma is ranked the 10th most violent state in the nation.
  • Oklahoma is among the top 4 states dealing with Human Trafficking.

 

“Addiction costs Oklahoma and its residents an estimated $7.2 billion a year. That's more than the state government's budget of $6.7 billion. That's roughly $1,900 for every man, woman and child in the state. It's enough to create about 273,000 median-wage jobs, or to build nine skyscrapers like Oklahoma City's Devon tower.” Not only is the public cost of this epidemic huge, but the amount of services offered to these struggling addicts is even greater! On any given day, anywhere from 600-900 people are on a waiting list to receive help through area recovery programs (Oklahoma Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs Control).

 

NOW is the time to stand together for the hurting in our state! It is our hope that those who come through the doors of Green Country and the Adolescent Centers of Adult & Teen Challenge of Oklahoma truly become “Unchained” through their time in these life-changing programs.

 

We invite you to joins us for the Unchained Banquet and find out more about how you can partner with us in this important work!  The event will be held September 7th, 2017 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Downtown Tulsa from 7-9PM.  We hope you'll join us!

Adult & Teen Challenge of Oklahoma - Green Country & Adolescent Centers

The mission of Teen Challenge is to provide youth, adults and families an effective and comprehensive faith-based prevention or solution to drug and alcohol addiction and other life controlling problems. Our objectives are to enable students to find freedom from addictive behavior, and to become socially and emotionally healthy, physically well and spiritually alive. With committed staff, effective programs and vocational training, Teen Challenge endeavors to produce graduates who function responsibly and productively in civil society, and who have healthy relationships in the work place, family, church and community.


At Oklahoma Teen Challenge, we would find it heart-breaking to merely see a person set free from the bondages of sin only to pursue a life of selfish gain. We aim to equip men to take dominion of their lives, their families, their communities, their schools, their work environments, and etc. by becoming servants of Christ who live to bring glory and honor to God in each and every role God would assign to them.
