12 Steps to Wholeness participants will:
  • Be provided expert insights from Christian Professionals working in the academic and clinical field of Addictions. These insights include helping participants understand the marvelous and resilient brain circuitry that God has gifted to humans, and how this truth can be utilized in inspiring hope and behavior change in the recovering addict.
  • Understand how addictions (activity and/or substance), obsessive-compulsive behaviors form and what we can do to heal the resulting family dysfunctions in our church and community
  • Recognize the need in the church for a ‘recovery ministry’ and the relevance of creating a Christ-centered 12-Step ministry in your church
  • Develop an understanding of how working systematically through the ‘Steps’, with accountability, can assist someone to move into healthy wholeness, deepening their personal journey with Christ
  • Be equipped with training, tools and practical steps to empower church members who have been called to a ‘recovery ministry’ to begin and facilitate a Christ-centered 12-Step support group for your church and community.
The ‘Steps’ offer help, hope and healing. ‘God never wastes a hurt’.  As individuals heal, they are prepared to help others in their life journey.
