Our purpose is to encourage congregations by testifying about God’s healing power in the lives of our clients and to help others see that through Him, they too, can overcome their struggles.
One of the most well-known and powerful ways Minnesota Adult & Teen Challenge reaches out to area churches and the community at large is through our client choir. Each weekend the men & women in our long-term program are welcomed in by local churches to share music and testimonies. The MnTC choir has had the pleasure of ministering to a wide variety of churches in Minnesota and western Wisconsin.
Along with the regular weekend church visits, please contact us as we would love to see if the choir could come to your next event. Some of our past events include: singing for the MN House of Representatives, singing the national anthem at the Twins games, sharing songs and testimonies at Joyful Noise, as well as special shows at conferences, outdoor events and fairs.

Host the Choir
Our choir involvement at your church is an opportunity to highlight Christ’s message of redemption and restoration. On Sundays, we bring clients to churches around the state to sing worship songs and share testimonies. This is an integral part of our client’s recovery, as they are given the opportunity to share what God has done in their lives. These visits are powerful and enriching to all who attend. We understand that each church and community is unique; therefore we cater our presentations based on length, congregational needs or even specific themes.
A typical visit has three components:
- Sound Check
- 3-6 Worship songs
- 3-6 Testimonies
- Program FAQs and MnTC Involvement Opportunities
- Love Offering
- Informational booth
- Fellowship with current clients (i.e. share a congregational meal)
Additional Details and Technical Needs
We request a quick sound check 45 minutes before the 1st service. To help the sound check and service run smoothly, we ask for someone from your church to run sound. We will have a client sound person available for support as well. Our music is available on CD and flash drive and we will need access to a sound system that is compatible to one of these music formats. We also request 2 microphones and 1-2 monitors be set up in advance of our arrival. For our information booth, please provide a six-foot table in the main lobby for us to set up our display board and brochures.
We typically request a minimum of 30 minutes of “ministry time” during the service to share songs and testimonies; however, we are always willing to work with your church’s preferences.
We also ask for the opportunity to take a separate love offering during the service for MnTC. As a ministry we do not desire to take away from what is typically given to the local church on a Sunday service. However, we rely on private donations to help fund MnTC. After decades of working with churches, we have found that the best way to do this is for the church to take their regular offering toward the beginning of the service, so they still receive their normal giving. Then, toward the end of our portion of the service, take a love offering for those people who would like to help support MnTC. However, this can look different depending on the service structure.
Churches that we visit will often provide a meal to our choir after the service(s). This is not a requirement, but it is an excellent way for your congregation to further interact with our clients. Many clients and congregants say this is their favorite part as they can then have time to have one-on-one conversations and prayer with our clients.
Choir Group Size:
Our group size will depend on the size of your church; the minimum number of clients that we are able to send is 24, with 2-3 staff members. If your church is unable to accommodate this many individuals, please let us know so that we can discuss other possibilities.
