(Executive Directors)

Students Share their Stories of Changed Lives through Southwest Florida Men’s Campus



“After being saved by Jesus Christ, I once again have found hope for my life and through Teen Challenge, the Lord has given me a second chance at a life worth living. Now my future looks brighter than ever.”




“In Teen Challenge, I have learned to accept the freedom that Jesus offers, to break free from my bondage of sin. I now embrace that I am a new creation in Christ, and I look to the future to find His will for my life!”




“I was lost, finding my identity in how other people viewed me. Now, through my time in Teen Challenge, getting to know Jesus, I have found my identity in Christ as a child of God set apart for His purpose!”


familyWhat’s Been Happening at Southwest Florida Men’s Ministry?

Let us introduce to you the new Executive Directors of Teen Challenge-Fort Myers, Pastor Will and Mary Kitchen!


Will and Mary Kitchen joined us with their three boys, Liam, Judson and Micah, to steward the ministry in Fort Myers. We couldn’t be more excited to add this family to our excellent team of leaders in the Southeast Region. Will and Mary have served Teen Challenge since 2006, first in intern positions at Long Island Teen Challenge and then as program directors at Teen Challenge in Brooklyn. Will is a graduate of Central Bible College and holds two master’s degrees from Regent University in Practical Theology and Clinical Mental Health Counseling. He is also a licensed minister and has a heart for worship and leading others in worship. Each one of these abilities will be a tremendous asset to the work Will and May will do in Fort Myers.

"NO WARRANTY" LEGAL NOTICE: While independent outcomes studies have shown very high recovery rates for indiviuals in our programs, we cannot guarantee recovery for any particular individual. Recovery and future abstinence from addicting substances and the effects that such substances may have on the individual or their life, actions, or their future are entirely dependent on the individual and how well they apply the principles we have taught them. We are an educational institution, and how the individual in our program learns from what they are taught and modeled here, is totally up to them. Individuals who stay the full term (until graduation) have much better long-term recovery from addicitons than those who do not.


FLORIDA, TENNESSEE AND CALIFORNIA RESIDENTS: Please note that Adult & Teen Challenge Centers in Florida are not-for-profit religious institutions, not licensed medical facilities, nor do they accept insurance. Rates are very low compared to for-profit rehabs. Outcomes are based on multiple outcomes studies over the past 50 years, including this study from the National Institutes on Drug Abuse.

UNLIKE A TYPICAL ADDICTION TREATMENT CENTER: For 60 years, we have successfully inspired individuals to break free of their addictions and life-controlling issues. Our low-cost program is not an addiction treatment center — it is a residential educational program designed to reverse the destruction that addictions reap on relationships, careers and futures. We set the former addict on a new course in life with all new motivations and renewed respect, peace and care for others. In a safe, encouraging, drug-free environment, our staff (who are mostly former addicts themselves) work with each individual daily, showing them the way toward a more fulfilling life based on God’s forgiveness, love and purpose. Our model has proven to be highly effective for all addictions, bringing about maturity, honesty, humility, care, and life change. Medical detox may be required before enrolling.

"NO WARRANTY" LEGAL NOTICE: While outcomes studies for Adult & Teen Challenge centers have historically shown high addiction and substance abuse recovery rates, they cannot guarantee addiction recovery for any particular individual. Recovery and future avoidance of addicting substances and whatever effects that such substance may have on the individual's life, their future, their career or their friends or relatives are entirely dependent on each individual and how they apply the principles they are taught in the program.
