2 Corinthians 1:9

"We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves;

but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God."

LEADERSHIP by Christians

Celebrate Recovery is conducted by Christians who have been through 12-step recovery themselves.

They understand.

Many have been dealt tragic blows in their lives.

Our choices cause painful and lingering consequences, leading to guilt, remorse, grief, and shame.

These individuals can truly understand and lead others.

Successful RECOVERY

Perhaps you are wondering why Celebrate Recovery is so successful in hundreds of churches across the land.

There are three reasons why this approach is special:

1. Jesus Christ is the "Higher Power".

2. Issue Groups are led by real people who have been through recovery with Him.

3. The Principles and methods applied are built upon Biblical truths.
