Training Center

 

The Teen Challenge Ukraine Ministry, having a desire to be a reliable resource for local churches and to assist the rehabilitation workers' ministry, using the 50+ years of Teen Challenge's heritage and working towards its effective application in the Ukrainian context, will soon open the Leadership Development Program for Teen Challenge Ukraine.

Our desire is both the growth of the ministers themselves as well as assisting them so that they are able to see to the development of their own ministries. Therefore, we are aware that for the Program to be effective, we need to interact with local ministers, coordinating our actions and making this process fully transparent, starting from the process of accepting a minister to the Program and until he graduates/finishes his training.

What Kind Of A Program Is This?

Teen Challenge Ukraine Leadership Development Program is a three five-day training modules. The graduates who have completed a one year course are awarded with a certificate of completion. During the training modules, the students will get acquainted with the basic biblical topics, as well as practical skills in serving the addicted people in accordance with the Teen Challenge model. We tried to make the learning process as interesting and practical as possible, thus the course contains not only lectures, but also discussions, group work and practical assignments, as well as homework.   


Teen Challenge Conference

Teen Challenge Ukraine conducts an annual all-Ukraine conference for those who serve in the field of rehabilitation of the people with addictive behavior.

The goal of the conference is to encourage and inspire everyone to no longer think like "an ex-addict" but instead have a mindset of those who are worthy to live in the society and influence it's development.

At these conferences, we cultivate friendly and business ties with ministries and churches in Ukraine and other countries, in addition, mature and successful ministers share their personal experiences, inspiring others to move forward and discover new possibilities.

We change — society changes.


Coffee House Conference

In order to facilitate the Coffee House peer-support groups in Ukraine, we hold an annual conference for volunteers and leaders of this ministry.
