History of the Ministry
Celebrate Recovery is a biblical and balanced program that helps us overcome our hurts, hang-ups, and habits. It is based on the actual words of Jesus rather than psychological theory. 20 years ago, Saddleback Church launched Celebrate Recovery with 43 people. It was designed as a program to help those struggling with hurts, habits and hang-ups by showing them the loving power of Jesus Christ through a recovery process. Celebrate Recovery has helped more than 17,000 people at Saddleback, attracting over 70% of its members from outside the church. 85% of the people who go through the program stay with the church and nearly half serve as church volunteers.
Making a Difference
"Celebrate Recovery is a Christ-centered, 12 step recovery program for anyone struggling with hurt, pain or addiction of any kind.
Celebrate Recovery is a safe place to find community and freedom from the issues that are controlling our life." (Quote found in the official website of Celebrate Recovery, link is below)
At the core of the Celebrate Recovery Ministry are 12 Steps and their Biblical comparisons. The 8 Principles based on the Beatitudes from Jesus' most well-known teaching, The Sermon on the Mount.
Celebrate Recovery Ministry is looking for 6 to 8 volunteers who are interested in ministering to children. Children who come to Celebration Place range in age from 6 to 12. Two volunteers per classroom must be present while leading life-changing lessons. All program materials will be provided. We also need volunteers ages 5 and under.
