New Perspectives - Feb, 1999 Issue #56 

Eureka, Montana
Alan and Barbara Sullenger

“Affinity is a Christian home based, residential program… to mentor teenage boys, ages 13-18, who are at risk, or have life- controlling problems. Through a solid Christian family lifestyle, each boy is treated as an individual. Affinity enables teenagers to deal with the wrong choices and hurts that they have encountered, and allows God to show them the right way to start over…. Our program provides a setting for treatment which occurs on an informal basis rather than through formal individual treatment sessions.”

“We believe that it is in the very best interest of our students to be surrounded by a family and home environment for their schooling, as opposed to being surrounded by the enormous pressures and influences that teens are subjected to in public schools. After careful consideration, Affinity has chosen American School, one of the oldest accredited home schools in the nation, for our general academics, and Teen Challenge’s spiritual curriculum has been selected for our spiritual academics.”

“Affinity is located in beautiful northwestern Montana in the peaceful town of Eureka. Nested in the Rocky Mountains, just south of the Canadian border and surrounded by abundant wildlife, forests, lakes and wild flowers, Eureka provides a natural environment for adolescent boys to develop an intimate relationship with God and nature. A population of approximately 4,200 people, Eureka offers a slower small town feeling that is lost in today’s hurried society, and provides Affinity the opportunity to allow Christ to reach our adolescents hearts and minds in the tranquil and gentle way in which the Lord works.”

“During the spring and summer months, our recreation takes us hiking, fishing, horseback riding, river rafting and swimming. Winter in Montana provides opportunities to ice fish, ice skate, downhill and cross country ski. As teens mature in their personal relationship with Christ, the possibility of foreign or domestic travel and missionary work become an option.”
