Life Recovery 12 Step Is Bible Based:



A pathway to Recovery and Wholeness

God’s program for Reconciliation and Healing.



THE HOLY BIBLE is a book about recovery. It records how the world began and how God created it to be good. Then it tells us about the beginning of sin—about the first-time people decided to reject God’s plan. It spells out the fatal consequences that result from rejecting God’s program. But the Bible doesn’t leave us in despair. It reveals a plan for recovery and the source of the power to accomplish it. It provides us with the only pathway to wholeness—God’s program for reconciliation and healing.

Facilitator Expectations / Ground Rules: 

  • Every participant is required to register for the class themselves.  Not your parent, or spouse, friend or family member.  

  • Each week consists of about 2-3 hours of reading and a few questions to answer and bring to the next class for discussion.  This is not an option.  If you don’t read and answer the questions at home, you won’t have anything to offer the group the following week and you become dead weight.  The others are carrying you. ‚Äč

  • Attendance is mandatory for the entire 12 weeks.  If you have to miss a class due to a death in the family, work, a hospital emergency, or if you are sick, PLEASE CALL OR TXT ME.  Participants are allowed one excused absence.  If you’ve been absent or sick and have had your excused absence and you miss again but you don’t call or text me, you’re dismissed from the group/class.  I’ve allowed prior groups to decide the fate of a participant more than once.  All participants must respect my time and that of the others in the group.  I’m committed to be there for you every week, whether you choose to show up or not.  I will be there; I’ve made that commitment to you.  You can do the same.

  • If for some reason, you are dismissed from the group or quit, you are responsible for returning or paying for the Life Recovery Bible.  This is a ministry of the church to help those who want help. We want to provide the bibles for everyone who is committed to completing the 12-week study. 

  • If a participant shows up and it’s determined that they have been using drugs or drinking alcohol, they are asked not to speak in that night’s session.



The Life Recovery 12 step study sessions are held two to four times per year depending on demand and facilitator scheduling. If you have any questions about the Step Study program, please click on the "send email" link above and submit them directly to Alan.  

Your questions will remain anonymous and your information will not be shared with anyone other than the ministry staff.
