TCoT Becomes an ECFA Accredited Organization



The ECFA (Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability) recently announced the accreditation of

Teen Challenge of Texas.

ECFA accreditation is based on the ECFA Seven Standards of Responsible Stewardship™, including financial accountability, transparency, sound board governance and ethical fundraising.

Teen Challenge of Texas joins a growing number of Christ-centered churches and ministries across America, supported by over 20 million donors that have earned the right to display the ECFA seal.  When an organization is accredited by ECFA, it demonstrates its willingness to follow the model of biblical accountability.

“We are pleased to accredit a ministry committed to being a faith-based solution to the drug epidemic,” said Dan Busby, president of ECFA.

Founded in 1968, Teen Challenge of Texas provides Christian recovery services to individuals of every age and social background. They also provide drug abuse prevention, by educating people on the dangers and reality of drug abuse in our society.
