    Recovery Ministries

    Are you…
    working through addiction issues?
    wanting freedom from your hurts, hang-ups, and habits?
    wondering how Christ’s hope relates to you?

    If you are, then Recovery Ministries can help.

    Discovering Your Chaos

    The best antidote for chaos—and the deception it brings into our lives—is a healing truth. The 12 Steps of Recovery provide a wonderful road map to help you walk that path. This program can be applied to almost any addiction or problem we may be facing.

    The 12 Steps of Recovery aren’t just something to be memorized— they are a course of action that we have to follow carefully and do. And through Discovery Ministries, we can help you do it.

      Conquer Series for Men

      The Conquer Series provides men a safe place for hope and healing to process their life story: learning how family of origin, traumatic experiences, and wounding messages impact relationships. More than 100 men from Central have gone through this 10-week series, which focuses on educating and equipping men through small group resources leading the way in the battle for sexual integrity in the church. Pure Desire groups help you discover how to break free of denial and face the truth before God and others.

      Betrayal and Beyond for Women

      If you’ve been hurt or betrayed by a spouse’s addiction, the Betrayal and Beyond series is designed to give hope and healing to women who are feeling hopeless and alone. The group and workbook reveal the truth and nature of sexual addiction, and how women are wounded by an addict’s behaviors. For women who have suffered betrayal, their healing comes from understanding the role of trauma, establishing healthy boundaries, exploring the depth of forgiveness, and learning to live in restoration.

      Info for the next session of Betrayal and Beyond will be available soon.

      If you have questions about Betrayal and Beyond, email Pastor Roger Anderson at [email protected], or call the church office at (605) 336-3378.
