American National Bank honors 2022 Sonrise Mission Graduates

May 23, 2022

American National Bank was pleased to sponsor the Sonrise Mission 33rd Annual Graduation Banquet on May 13, 2022 held at Church by the Glades. The 2022 graduating class consisted of 15 residential graduates and three staff training graduates.

Sonrise Mission Bible Training Center is a division of Mission Teens Inc., a not-for-profit 501 (C) 3 faith ministry that provides hope for the hopeless through their non-denominational Christ centered residential, discipleship training program. Their goal is to help people who have life-controlling problems such as drug or alcohol addictions by ministering the Gospel of Jesus Christ to them. The program is divided into four phases, each lasting two to four months, with the final phase a “counselor training” phase.

Since 1969 over 20,000 people have come into the various Mission Teens centers, with a 90% success rate. Many graduates go into Christian ministries, some stay to work in their centers while others go on to be productive members of society and lights in their communities. Sonrise Mission does not charge for their services and does not receive any funding from the government. All support comes from local resources such as concerned individuals, businesses and churches.

Congratulations to all the 2022 graduating class!
