Are you a Participant in the International Christian Recovery Coalition? (No charge! Free! http://www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com). Are you a Christian leader or worker in the recovery arena involved in carrying a message of hope to alcoholics, addicts, and others suffering with life-controlling problems? We may have just what you need to enhance the effectiveness of your Christian Recovery effort!

We are excited to announce the availability of three Christian Recovery tools that may be used together or separately to help you carry the message about the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in early A.A.’s astonishing successes and that they can play in today’s recovery scene. Our three years of conferences and meetings throughout California—beginning with the Mariners Church conference in Irvine in May 2009—have produced a package of three spiritual tools that are much-needed today and should be a part of any Christian Recovery outreach effort. The three tools are:

1. The Dick B. Christian Recovery Guide, 3rd ed., by Dick B. and Ken B. This Guide provides comprehensive information about the roles played by God, His Son Jesus Christ, and the Bible in early A.A.’s astonishing successes and how that information may be applied today. The Table of Contents, and details about how to acquire this Guide for $30.00 plus Shipping, are here: http://www.dickb.com/index.html#Resource3.

2. Stick with the Winners! How to Conduct More Effective 12-Step Recovery Meetings Using Conference-Approved Literature: A Dick B. Guide for Christian Leaders and Workers in the Recovery Arena by Dick B. and Ken B. This book may be used for individual study, as a group leadership tool, as a tool for use in a study group or fellowship, as a class, or as a seminar or conference presentation guide. The Table of Contents, and details about how to acquire this Guide for $9.95, are here: http://www.dickb.com/index.html#Stick_with_the_Winners!

3. The 27-video “Stick with the Winners” class by Dick B. and Ken B. This just-released class (May 2012) comprised of 27 videos complements the other tools. The videos may be played individually or as a group to enhance your Christian Recovery outreach. The list of video titles, and details about how to acquire this class for $29.95, are here: http://christianrecoveryradio.com/#Stick_with_the_Winners

Facts to Ponder as You Decide

Let’s start with two different points. Points we urge you to consider now:

1. Free: It costs nothing to become a participant in International Christian Recovery Coalition. And already there are participants in almost every one of the United States as well as in a number of other countries. We want the Christian Recovery Movement to continue growing worldwide. We believe there is a real need and calling for its mission. We welcome as participants and urge any and all people, institutions, fellowships, and ministries to view http://www.ChristianRecoveryCoalition.com.

2. Active: Many of our participants, as well as many Christian alcoholics and addicts are Christian recovery leaders, workers, newcomers, and members of the public who, and organizations which, are already offering Christian recovery in their areas of interest and expertise.

But there are many others who want to become active now and in the future. They don’t know where to start. They don’t know how to proceed. They have often been wrongly dissuaded from such work. Yet they hunger for the means to serve and glorify God by getting active with friends, churches, and fellowships. These include those who:

a) Now have, or want to establish, a Christian recovery fellowship.

b) Now belong to a Christian church or religious organization, and want to establish a Christian recovery group or fellowship or
program in that facility.

c) Want to begin studying, learning, discussing, and furthering in the recovery community today: (1) the principles and practices of the First Century Christians as described in the Book of Acts, (2) the principles and practices of the early (old school) Akron A.A. Christian Fellowship – which was often called “First Century Christianity at work,” (3) the daily focus and effectiveness of this old-school, Bible-based A.A., and the application of that program to recovery from alcoholism, addiction, and life-controlling problems in today’s recovery arena, and (4) the tremendous value today of utilizing the 24/7 (we call it “daily”) fellowship, contact, learning, reading, studying, meeting, praying, love, service, tolerance, and witnessing—all as to the power, love, healing, forgiveness, wholeness, guidance, and walking by the spirit of God with other like-minded believers.

d) Want to act as purposeful, successful, serving, truly loving examples among those who have become children of the living God, new creatures in Christ, and ambassadors for Christ.

e) Recognize they can’t practice, give to others, and serve God in the way that A.A. and similar fellowships urge if they don’t know or understand or have not themselves attained and mastered.

f) Want to collaborate, network, strengthen—with and through the knowledge and experience of others–an informed body—the body of Christ–consisting of individuals, groups, fellowships, programs, facilities, and institutions that know, believe in, and endeavor to apply old school A.A., First Century Christian principles and practices, and the best in 12 Step Fellowships and Step principles that exist today.

g) See our International Christian Recovery Coalition, its mission, its participants, and its projects, as a new and essential and vibrant part of a growing, world-wide, effective answer to the ravages of alcoholism, addiction, and their societal effects. An ever-present answer where there is an absence of what was called “Divine Aid” by those who believed neither individuals nor any human power could solve the problem. And, of course, that God could and would if He were sought.

Again, here are the three tools and information on how to obtain them:
