My monthly Northeast DS Pastor Cluster for February provided a full overview last week of Recovery Church, which is a parachurch ministry complimentary to Celebrate Recovery and other 12 Step Programs. CLICK HERE to explore the effective outreach a Recovery Church launch could have for your church family.
- Rev. Billy Robel (pictured above left) launched and leads a Recovery Church in Sunbury, Pennsylvania. Over the past two years they have baptized 111 new Believers – PTL! A different approach than Celebrate Recovery, but a complimentary option for creating a congregation that specifically targets the needs of families dealing with addictions.
Overdose is the #1 cause of death in the United States for people under 50. Each year it kills more people than those who lost their lives in the entire Vietnam War. What if families suffering from addiction could come to a church where it is OK not to be OK?
- Rev. Anita Eastlack has coordinated the efforts of four Wesleyan churches in the Lehigh Valley to launch a second Recovery Church on the Northeast District. The couple pictured above right were married by Anita during their Recovery Church service last Friday night!
Interested in knowing more? CLICK HERE to let me know and pending responses I will coordinate a Zoom with Billy & DS Karl so you can have direct access to their experiences as you consider how God may be leading you to expand ministry to families impacted by addiction.
