San Antonio Men’s Director Floyd Miles, III recently had an opportunity to speak at San Antonio’s Christian Business Chamber of Commerce (CBCC) and share a presentation about Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas (ATCOT).  CBCC is an inter-denominational organization of Christians gathered together to promote Christ in your life, heart, home and in the workplace.

CBCC has chosen the ATCOT San Antonio men’s campus as their special project for their first quarter in 2016.  CBCC has promised to raise $1500 to put toward a student scholarship fund that will help enable more men to attend Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas.

CBCC plans to mobilize 15-20 men to come to the San Antonio men’s campus this February to help the campus expand their fireworks stand and their commercial kitchen floor.

Estimate costs for these two projects include:

$ 3,000—Fireworks stand
$  4,000–Commercial kitchen floor.

 “We have the free labor,” said Miles.  “But we need the supplies for these projects.  Would you be willing to help purchase some of the supplies for these projects?”

The Magnolia Men’s Campus would like to shout out a big THANK YOU to Speed the light!  Speed The Light recently donated a new eleven passenger van!  This provides the Magnolia men’s campus with a reliable vehicle to transport our Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas students and to disciple others into relationship with the Lord.

Speed the Light Van

Speed the light (STL) began in 1944 through the National Youth Ministries department of the Assemblies of God as a way to give youth the opportunity to help missionaries spread the gospel message to the lost.  STL is the student-initiated, volunteer, charitable program that provides much-needed equipment to those on the front lines of ministry.  Since its beginning, STL has raised over $253 million for missionary equipment around the world  By providing essential and reliable transportation, ministries like Adult & Teen Challenge of Texas can better fulfill the Great Commission and speed the light of the gospel to a world in darkness.
