Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge

MATC, formerly Minnesota Teen Challenge, is usually a "last stop" of drug and alcohol treatment programs, yet they have among the highest recovery rates which they credit completely to the intervention of Jesus Christ in the lives of those they serve.  MATC provides four Christ-centered services to clients including school assemblies focusing on prevention, a 1-year intensive residential program, a short-term (28-60 day) curriculum, and their mentor aftercare programs that connect former clients with ministries like Next Chapter and local churches to aid the client's ongoing success.

Rochester Christian Hospitality Network

Calvary E Free and Autumn Ridge churches are forming a group called Rochester Christian Hospitality Network (RCHN) to expand “internal listings” of homes able to host patients and others who come to “Destination Medical Center” with short-term hospitality needs. Keep on loving one another as brothers and sisters. Do not forget to show hospitality to strangers, for by so doing some people have shown hospitality to angels without knowing it. Hebrews 13: 1-2.
