  • 12-Step biblical program based on the 8 recovery principles

  • Confidential; safe environment
  • Is a ministry started at Saddleback Church by Rick Warren, the author of The Purpose Driven Life.

Celebrate Recovery is a 12-Step Biblical program based on the 8 recovery principles. This ministry is for all types of hurts, habits and hang-ups, including: overeating, overworking, overspending, sexual addiction, depression, co-dependency, drug/alcohol addiction, anger, fear/anxiety, past sexual abuse, controlling behavior, hurtful relationships, guilt/shame, gambling, insecurity, divorce, and pornography.

Pornography and/or infidelity can destroy the very foundation of your marriage or relationship, resulting in broken trust and feeling betrayed, rejected, unwanted, or unloved. This Monday night, Jackie and Darrick Engelman will share their personal stories about how they brought their currently wonderful marriage back from the brink of disaster and divorce when trust issues entered their marriage. Come join us at 7 PM to hear a moving and compelling story about restoration through the power of Jesus Christ. For those women who are struggling with issues of infidelity in their relationships, please realize there is hope and there is real help. Jackie is currently leading a women's group that gathers every Monday night to discuss the hurts and pain affiliated with these sensitive topics and how to deal with them. Call her at 580-0212 if you need help or would like to join the group. Also, this Monday we have our free home cooked meal at 6 PM in Room 153. Free child care provided from 6:45 to 9:15 PM

Doesn’t “Recovery” mean I need to be recovering from alcohol or drugs?

No. This ministry is for all types of problems and addictions which are unhealed, unmet, or unresolved. Confidential, safe environment. Problems such as: overeating, overworking, overspending, sexual addiction, depression, co-dependency, drug/alcohol addiction, anger, fear/ anxiety, past sexual abuse, controlling behavior, hurtful relationship, guilt/shame, gambling, insecurity, divorce, and pornography.


Who leads this ministry?

Christians, who understand the challenges you’re facing, have taken the time to be trained in the 12-step program and care enough to want to help.


How can Celebrate Recovery help me?

By linking its four main components: fellowship, Bible study, worship/teaching, and support, you will discover a defense against sin and experience a fresh start from any difficulty which may be preventing you from living the life God intended for you. It is only through the saving grace of God that healing will begin and a new direction for your life will emerge. Ultimately we can become free from our addictive, compulsive, and dysfunctional behaviors bringing peace, serenity, joy and most importantly a stronger personal relationship with God and others.
