Eric Swanson, Program Manager

As a teenager, I was in and out of juvenile detention, different schools, rehabs, NA's and military school.  When I encountered God in a radical way in juvenile detention, I knew I would never be the same.  I am so thankful to my Father who lead me to Western Michigan Teen Challenge in Muskegon, Michigan on May 8th, 2006 at the age of 17.   This is where I was discipled and learned to live my new life in Him.  In 2010, God called me to serve at Northern Indiana Adult & Teen Challenge as the program manager.  

We are blessed here at Northern Indiana Adult & Teen Challenge to have a staff with a passion to serve the Lord. Having encountered the Holy Spirit’s power of deliverance from addictions first hand, we are able to relate to the

students and their daily struggles.  Each one of our male staff members has successfully completed a Adult & Teen Challenge program, and are continuing their post graduation education.  Our vision is to disciple men in the truth of the gospel and to see them build successful, God-glorifying lives on the foundation of solid biblical principles.
