Teen Challenge Netherlands exists to help and see lives change by the power of God. Teen Challenge Netherlands reaches out to lost, troubled, broken people; to bring back hope and see lives being restored.
Teen Challenge Netherlands started in 1969, with a coffee house ministry in The Hague. It grew to become a large national ministry, with coffee house (outreach) ministries and rehab centers. In 2014 we celebrated 45 years of ministry. Youth outreach centers The Gate – a joined effort with the local churches – located throughout the Netherlands, reach hundreds of teenagers every week.
A new concept of community center called Life Center has just been launched. Life Center provides a home, and needed care, for the people in the community (north of Amsterdam) by effectively combining outreach, discipleship and sustainability.
