Start a recovery ministry
When you begin a Recovering Hope meeting at your church, it can be challenging and rewarding. It starts with the desire to care for those who are suffering through the pains of addiction, and recognizing the calling of God in your life to serve them.
Our mission is to support and equip local churches for ministry and to assist pastors and leaders as they care for the hurting. When you partner with Hope for Addiction, you are supplied with everything needed to start and run a weekly recovery program including meeting lessons, discipleship tools and on-going training for effective ministry. The Recovering Hope program does not require lengthy preparation and the materials are easy to follow and implement.
Hope for Addiction is dedicated to support you every step of the way. From the initial planning stages, the gathering of your team, securing commitments from others in your church for discipleship, to the implementation of the meeting and the logistics behind it. We want to be a part of your church’s story. Our greatest joy is to witness the power of God through lives transformed by the saving grace of Jesus.
IS HOPE FOR Addiction right for your church?
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO START A RECOVERING HOPE ADDICTIONS MINISTRY IN OUR CHURCH?
Partnering with Hope for Addiction as an Associate, gives you the full Recovering Hope program including weekly meetings, and takes a little longer to get started. There are some strategic things that need to happen, so it can take some time. If you streamline the process, you could be up and running in a few months. Usually the process takes 6-12 months. If you have someone who keeps the ball rolling and the church is ready, three months is a good expectation.
WHAT IS INCLUDED IN THIS LEVEL?
You get the all of the articles, discipleship curriculum, and resources, plus the entire Recovering Hope program. This includes:
free use of marketing materials and messaging (a specific marketing toolkit has been prepared to make it easy to promote your addictions ministry
the Recovering Hope meeting materials (lesson guides, growth assignments and handouts)
personalize guidance and consulting
access to the Hope for Addiction network of churches and resources from care organizations (including CCEF Journal of Biblical Counseling archive, additional training materials, specialized curriculum)
WHAT IS THE COST OF THE ASSOCIATE PARTNERSHIP?
Associate Partners pay an annual subscription cost of $1,000 (paid one-time or monthly). This cost provides all you need to start and run the Recovering Hope program as well as well as on-going training and support from our team.
